1rst and last visit with Dr Tantuwaya

I was early and was seen somewhat sooner because someone did not show up before me. That was great. Ive been suffering for years and was hoping Dr.Tantuwaya would have some answers for me but like many other doctors before him I got no real answers and rude comments on to what was causing me so much pain. He said many unsettling things to me. He said I should see a psychiatrist and I had to tell him I have been seeing one for depression already. I had to remind him again that I was self admitted to the psychiatrist for depression so there was no need to refer me to one(The pain is so bad it is very depressing).The pain is real and is something that needs prompt medical attention. its been too long to not get help and answers Dr. Tantuwaya. I don't know how long I'm gonna last in this condition. Thanks for wasting my time. if your condition is serious and needs attention asap I would not recommend Dr. Tantuwaya. he gets an overall 2 for nice staff. Hope this helps

Let the world know that Dr. Tantuwaya is the best

I am 71 and I had back problem for years. Other doctors were concerned to operate on me. But he did with the least invasion. Recovered in a shortest time and now I am trouble-free. I play golf and do everything no pain at all. He is a miracle doctor. I highly recommend him.
