Dr. Ronald M. Tuttelman's Ratings
Doctor Tuttelman was my doctor for full 10 years... I loved him for being very honest and saying the things how they are! I wrote a lot of positive reviews and I meant every single one...however this is not one of them. Today after 10 years I felt like I was nobody- he made me feel horrible for wanting and fighting for second child... Said that woman wanting a child is the "worst" case!!! Aren't we most of his patients that want a child????..... That I am desperate.... That is mostly true, but if I was listening to what people think and believe is the "BEST" for me I would not have my first child!!! Very heartbroken...we have to part ways...Overall- great doctor. The staff is great also, I love Kim and his wife.
I moved to Florida several years ago and asked my then new Internist where to go when I got pregnant. He said you "must go to Dr Tuttelman. He's not fancy but he's the best." He was right! He can be "blunt" but as my Internist said " you want him on your side. " The office is clean but needs "decorating." I had a difficult pregnancy due to a chronic disease and I was watched very closely between him and the specialists he consulted with. Both he and his office worked hard to ensure I had the best outcome. I called him many times after hours and my calls were returned promptly. I had many "extra" visits due to my condition and I was always "fit in" right away. HIs staff greets you by name and you don't feel like you're just another patient. He was with me the entire time during my labor and delivery. My family liked him so much that both my mother and sister switched to him.
I was referred to this doctor and wish I would have read comments prior to seeing him. He sent us for numerous blood work (which were NOT covered by our insurance). He also sent us to a "specialist" for ultrasounds and NONE were covered by our insurance. When I told him we couldn't afford the $300.00 ultrasound visits every other week he basically told me I was going to be a horrible mother.Everything on here about his swearing (the F word is his favorite), his bedside manners, the office staff and the condition of the office is all true. Also if he gives you a copy of your health records don't lose them because he will not give you another copy. He is by far the worst doctor I have ever seen and should not be allowed to treat people the way he does! I filed a complaint against him because of how badly I was mistreated. Do yourself a favor and stay away from this man!!
Dr. Tuttelman has been my physician for over 17 years. I feel blessed to have such a competent and caring OBGYN. I had 2 very complicated pregnancies with him and I always felt as though I was in the best hands. He never rushed our visits and took all the necessary steps and precautions to make sure that my pregnancies were successful. His staff is very accomodating and return phone calls in a prompt and efficient manner. He is one of the few doctors that actually takes the time to sit down and explain what he is doing in a way that is easy for the "non-physician patient" to understand.
I just wanted to say that I am an experienced RN and have been to a few different OB/GYNs in the area. Dr Tuttelman and his staff are simply the best! I had a high risk pregnancy but I felt safe and well cared for with Dr. Tuttelman by my side! No, his office isn't beautiful but the people who work there are!! Dr. Tuttelman called me in the evenings and on weekends just to check on me! Unheard of from any other doctors I know! If you need a good physician I highly recommend Dr. Tuttelman! You will be happy you did!!!
I went to Dr. Tuttleman for a 2nd opinion, and I am so glad I did! He is a very straight forward & knowledgeable doctor who cares deeply about his patient’s well being. He takes his time with you, never rushes you & explains everything very thoroughly. Not only that, but he is a fabulous Robotic surgeon! I needed to have surgery & he was very reassuring & made me feel very comfortable. I recovered beautifully after my surgery with little, if any pain, or discomfort. The aftercare was amazing as well! If you call the office with any questions, Dr. Tuttleman immediately comes to the phone to answer them. During one of my office visits, Dr. Tuttleman actually came out to the waiting room to tell me he was running a few minutes late, what Doctor ever does that! Yes, his office is not fancy & in need of some renovation, but it is clean and more than adequate and his office staff is warm and very accommodating. Dr. Tuttleman is the best GYN I have ever been to, & I recommend him highly!
I have been Dr Tuttelman's patient for several years. I went to him after asking some nurses at the hospital for a new OB recommendation and I was given his name. He is very direct but empathetic especially if you have a problem. I had a problem, he explained it thoroughly and took care of it on a weekend. He won't let you leave the hospital until you speak to him "one more time." Yes, he does repeat himself because he wants you to really understand everything. I think he has great "people skills" and he's actually very funny. His office is not glamorous but it is clean and the staff is wonderful. It is nice to be greeted by name and you feel like a friend when you are there not a bother. He's had the same staff since I started going to him which is unusual in this business. If you are looking for a new doctor or it's time for a change, give him a shot.
Dr Tuttleman is an expert in his field. He is very knowledgeable and if you have a serious condition he is the man to help you. He however does not have any people skills and can make people feel uncomfortable and scared to ask questions. His staff is a bit clueless and his office is in a need of a complete remodel
I have been going to Tuttelman for 12 years. Prior to seeing him, I was bounced around to A LOT of doctors. Tests were run, opinions given, even a study was done on me. When I went to Doc, I was assuming I would get the same run around. I didn't. He took time with me & assured me he would take good care of me & make me well. He has been doing that for all of these years. I read a lot of the comments posted on here & agree with some of them. Yes, he's abrupt & can use some language...but who doesn't? He's down to earth & honest with you, about your particular situation. You do wait a while for him in the waiting & exam rooms. But he also gives you a lot of his time when it's your turn. His wife is a tough cookie & I've had issues with her in the past, but she too is honest & helpful. He's performed 2 surgeries on me, & both times he had my complete trust & faith. He's an excellent MD & for that, I respect him & recommend him. He has always treated me w/ respect & TLC.
I have been going to Dr. Tuttelman for years and he better stay in practice forever. After seeing numerous doctors who were not able to help me, I walked into his office and he diagnosed me and fixed my issue on the first try. Since then, he saved my life, literally. If it weren't for him, my health would have been in serious danger. He is so experienced in so many areas that I trust him wholeheartedly. He encouraged me to get a 2nd opinion, which I did. I did not follow the 2nd opinion, but trusted his expertise and I am so glad that I did because after surgery, the results proved him right and my 2nd opinion wrong! I will be forever greatful to him. His staff, who have been the same for years, have always been so accomodating to me every single time. When calling for an appointment, I have had to turn them down when the offer the very next day! I would highly recommend him to anyone for routine visits or especially if you are having any sort of issues; he knows his stuff!
