All my experiences with the team at this clinic have been great. The bulk of my interactions have been with Dr. Tidwell, Brittany (MA) and Sam at the front desk, but everyone, across the board have been great to work with. Thanks!

Dr. Tidwell was very efficient in the procedure I needed (removing a portion of my toenail to deal with an ingrown toenail). He was confident of his skills and was friendly & conversational, explaining everything as he went along

I have a broken ankle and it feels like the process is much slower than it should be. It seems to lack the urgency it needs

Excellent clinician. I'd seen three other doctors about this issue and he was the first one to be able to give me a diagnosis and plan. Very grateful. Very upbeat and positive as well.

I saw a resident first, and she gave me more options than Dr. Tidwell gave me when he came In later. So that was disappointing and jarring. They need to "get their stories straight." The resident stated they would send part of my nail in for testing, which sounded prudent. She stated if I were insistent, they could try an Rx for my toenail and monitor my liver function. Then he came in--no testing and the only treatment was remove the entire toenail. Very disconcerting.

Good communication, listened & explained well, answered questions. There was another person in exam & present for procedure. I was told their first name but not who they were or why joining, I wasn't asked if okay. Given the dialogue between Dr & said person it seems they were possibly an intern? They were professional in demeanor so I did not inquire with Dr.

I spoke with Dr. Tidwell fairly briefly during this visit. He was excellent. Once he was happy with our conversation he obtained my verbal consent to hand off to a pair of residents in the office yesterday. I do not recall their names, my apologies. One of them even kindly asked for my pronouns and offered hers. When I thanked her for this, she commented that it's a courtesy too often lacking in healthcare. I concur. Having a medical professional ask how I prefer to be addressed is an unexpected kindness and one I would love to see become more commonplace. Both of the residents I interacted with yesterday were extremely professional - as was Dr. Tidwell - and I am pleased to say that if these two residents are the kinds of people coming into medical professions today, there is still hope for future generations of humanity.

Dr. Tidwell was so kind and attentive he was by far one of the nicest friendliest doctors I have ever seen. He really listened to me, was very empathetic, and took enough time with me that I felt very cared for and not rushed through my appointment. he is very knowledgeable and walked me through a lot of solutions for my injury. He suggested I return in four weeks to check on my progress. I really appreciated this care especially when my injury was not very serious or debilitating. he expressed genuine care and concern for my health healing and well-being. I would highly recommend Dr. Tidwell.

Dr. Tidwell was friendly, seemed knowledgeable and took the time to hopefully solve the problem I am having with my feet, especially the left ankle. He made plan, new better fitting shoes, arch supports and icing after I walk. He said if that didn't help we would talk about a brace. I appreciated the time he took with me and the information he gave me.

Dr. Tidwell is very knowledgeable and experienced. He also remembers my case history between visits. His conservative approach with a previous injury (broken foot) helped me to heal without the need for surgery. I am getting the same high quality advice/treatment for my current condition (plantar fasciitis).

Dr. Tidwell was clearly very knowledgeable about my condition. He explained the causes and provided a series of exercises as the initial treatment. He also explained other options. I feel very comfortable following his advice.
