My concerns were blown off and I will likely need to find a new provider to complete the procedure needed

I had a very positive experience. Everyone was prompt, courteous, and very nice. If I have one 'complaint,' it would only be this: the After Visit Summary could have included the Dr.s Actual diagnosis. As far as what to do about my condition, the instructions were very clear & concise & understandable. Now perhaps when I check my Legacy Medical Records some time tomorrow, my actual diagnosis will be stated there?

Dr. Tidwell expertly took care of my injured toe and provided me clear written instructions on care. He will recheck toe but of course provide help if I have issues before the recheck appt. He is open to any questions and provides clear explanations.

Dr. Tidwell was great and explained things well. He had a great "bedside manner" and left me feeling optimistic.

I had a good experience, however, I was told Dr. Tidwell would be doing the surgery. A different doctor ended up doing the surgery - he was very nice and did a great job, however, it was not who I thought would be. I was very nervous going into the procedure and I made sure to look up Dr. Tidwell online and checkout his reviews and everything so that I felt comfortable. However, it was sprung upon me at the appointment that he wasn't actually doing the surgery. Again, I ended up feeling comfortable with the doctor who performed the surgery, however, I would've liked advance notice.

I wish Legacy health pacific source would cover my treatment at Dr Tidwell s office instead I pay $187 out of pocket which is ridiculous

The practitioner is very nice as is the rest of the staff that I encountered. The doctor took time to explain the radiographic findings and how it related to the pain I am experiencing. The doctor also gave me information about my next step and when to follow up.

Spent about three to four minutes with me. Didn't seem to care that I'm having extreme pain in my toes. Clipped some rough skin off, told me to get a lotion (the names of which weren't on my discharge papers so I had to call his MA for) and come back in two weeks. I've only uses it a couple of times so far but the $30 bottle of cream sure isn't helping the toe pain any yet. Not sure if I'll be returning or try to find a new foot doctor?

Very brief, no instructions on what to do to walk on foot until it gets better. Same experience year ago when I saw him.
