Dr. Barna Tugwell's Ratings
I have seen many endocrinologists and physicians before for thyroid issues, but I was sent to Dr. Tugwell for more comprehensive inquires into my health, she was very well spoken and thoughtful in the way she worded everything, I felt at ease and not like I was to blame for my issues. She is definitely an amazing physician.
Excellent Endocrinologist. It was my first time seeing someone for thyroid issues and she was thoughtful, comprehensive, thorough and encouraging. Very knowledgable, in many areas, I'm glad I was referred to her.
I was sent to Dr. Tugwell for my diabetes. Not only does she treat the diabetes she is also concerned about other health issues and even though I only see her every few months she knows my issues and takes a lot of time with me. I can honestly say she is one of the best doctors I have ever seen!
The best doctor I have ever seen so far. I entirely agree with the previous comments. She is very knowledgeable and open for discussion. I have researched my problem very thoroughly and went through many articles. I found Dr. Tugwell is really up to date with all the new researches and it is really a privilege to be a patient of such a good doctor. Thank you Dr. Tugwell.
Best doctor I have ever seen! Dr. Tugwell is amazing. She has called me at home several times to follow up on my blood work. She really cares about her patients and I feel when I am with her that she is totally focussed on me and my health. She also took the time to refer me to another specialist for something outside of her speciality, had an appt with the other doctor within 2 weeks because Dr. Tugwell was concerned about the other issue. If you can get her as your endocrinologist you are extremely lucky!
Dr. Tugwell immediately made me feel comfortable and in good hands. What a great experience. After having diabetes for a dozen years, she explained things to me and made me feel better about my disease! I would not hesitate to recommend her, she was so thorough and helpful, she personally called me before I had left her office to advise me I forgot a prescription and then offered to phone it in for me to my pharmacy. Excellent experience overall.
Great doctor, friendly, knowledgeable and covers everything. She has personally called me several times to answers questions or explain things to me she felt were not covered in the appointment. I was referred to her by my family doctor and I was very disappointed when she referred me to another doctor she felt could better treat me. I'm hoping they'll send me back to her!
