Dr. Tiktman almost killed my mom with too much medication, each visit he would add another pill, thank God it was caught in time. Please seek a second opinion.

He referred me to a sleep apnea study before and after getting the results of my neck xray that shows I have moderate to severe arthritis in my neck with possible canal stenosis!!! What does sleep study have to do with the nauseating pain in my neck and shoulders? Then got pissed at me asking what I want from him "pain pills "? When I answered with no but there is humira or enbrel he could give an injection for every 3 months while I attend physical therepy he said take it up with your dr???? My dr sent me to him for help because thats suppose to be his field of expertise!! I've NEVER ASKED OR RECEIVED PAIN MEDICATION and am drug tested for my anxiety medication every 3months for the past 4years and never failed!!! He needs help, because he accuses and assumes everyone wants pain medication when all I was seeking was "quality of life "until I could get thru the required physical therepy to qualify for the MRI to see if I need surgery!!! Save your time he was a waste of mine ....sleep study??? For severe arthritis in my neck? What is he getting a "kickback "???? Gotta wonder!

Not happy at all with the attention that he paid my 14 year old daughter. I felt like the faster he could prescribe a medicine and leave the happier he would be. He didn't even try to see what the cause of the headaches may be. When I said that I would have to research the medicine before I would let my daughter take it he looked at me like I was too stupid to know what is best for my daughter. Will not be back there.

I sat in the doctors office for almost two hours, of which only ten minutes did I actually see him. He was very rushed, did not really listen to was i had to say. Seemed very unconcerned at the beginning. But I was seeing him for chiari malformation and he said I didnt have it, which doesnt suprise me for various reasons, but I did question him on it and he said "this is what this doctor said this is what i say, so do you want me to treat you for your headaches *(only writing a prescription) or would you like to go somewhere else." and even said he didnt know where my other symptoms were coming from and did not want to do any test. He overall just very rude and patronizing. I would not reccommend anyone to him.

Absolutely Terrible. Completely off on his assessment. Showed no compassion....He was patronizing, not punctual and completely parsimonious.

Indifferent and patronizing to me. It's unbelievable to me how a dr. who knows you're being treated for depression will talk to you like you'e some stupid person and his word is the almighty word. Only he knows...you know. Also, told me I have Fibromyalgia but when it comes to applying for SSD he writes this nice letter making me sound almost in excellent health!? No sociable skills, no compassion. snobbish. He left me feeling completely uncared for. Nice for a person already suffering from Verbal Abuse, Anxiety, Panic, PtSd,and God knows what. You want a dr. who cares and feels?? go somewhere else.

Not sure why this doc can't make his appointments at least close to being on time. I've waited 2 hours in the hall waiting for his staff to open the office - they never showed, and I left. They didn't return my phone call for a week.

I was happy with the care I received and left feeling like we had a plan of what to do if my symptoms were to happen again.
