Dr. Tinsley is a wonderful neurologist. If you suffer from migraines she will help you to see the light at the end of the tunnel. Over the coarse of 10 years, that has included moving to three different states

The staff usually gets you back to the exam room close to your scheduled appointment time, but it can take quite a while before the doctor sees you. I've waited from 20 minutes up to an hour for an exam thatusually takes less than 15 minutes. Dr. Tinsley is very nice, but always seems rushed and running from one thing to the next. I know the office sees a lot of patients, but it sometimes feels to me like I'm being hustled out of the office. She will also give you lots of office numbers to call in case of issues with medications or symptoms. But on the occasions I've tried to get in contact with her assistant or with her, it's HARD to get through or get a call-back. If you're just looking for a doctor for the basics, or to run in and out for office appointments, she is fine. If you have a more complicated condition and think you might have follow-up questions or need someone you can get in touch with easily, I wouldn't necessarily recommend her. The office is just way too busy for that kind of personal care.

While the wait was a lot longer than expected, the staff were very courteous and helpful. Dr. Tinsley was also outstanding. There was no rushing or feeling pressured for time, and she answered my many questions and offered good follow upsteps and additional points of contact for use later on. I'm very glad to have found her and look forward to continuing to see her for my future appointments.

Dr Michael was great, I've had to see over two dozen doctors this year and she was easily among the very best. My only complaint has nothing to do with her; the admin check-in/out staff were not kind or helpful.

I didn't have much interaction with Amanda. I was seen by the resident but he took a very long time to go over everything. After he would ask me questions he would go to Amanda to summarize everything but he wouldgo to the hallway and talk super loud so not only would I be able to hear it (the door was closed) but I am sure other people heard my personal information as well. I don't recommend going here if you are in a rush.

She was thorough and pleasant. She had a 4th year med student see me first and I found him very friendly and knowledgeable as well. She ordered more testing and I felt that those could have been facilitated better and scheduledsooner. Maybe my expectations were too high in this regard? Overall, very happy.

It was great. Had a 90 minute wait but then she took her time with me as well. I think she likes to give her patients a lot of time and does not rush through her appointments. I will go back as she is worth the wait.
