Dr. Tison has excellent bedside manner and comes across as very reasonable and conservative in his treatment approach, which is awesome. I was in the office for a few hours on my first visit as they ran a battery of tests all at once for efficiency - I was VERY pleased with that given time-constraints on making repeat trips to the doctor. Excellent experience; I will continue to see him. As a plus, his staff was friendly and helpful.
