Dr. Tsynman was amazing! He took time to go over everything with me and knew that I needed a higher level of care that he couldn’t provide, so he recommended some people to me to try to help me better managemy illness. I really wish I could have stayed with him as my doctor, but I highly recommend him to anyone looking for someone with a great personality and who knows his stuff! He also recommended a medication for me to try in the meantime and gave me a ton of samples since my insurance may not cover it!

He's the real deal. Sat with me and answered all of my questions and concerns and I actually felt like he genuinely cared about my health, unlike most doctors these days who just want their copay and to get out inand out. I have a future procedure booked with him already - feeling confident in his skills and abilities.

Dr. Tsynman is intelligent, competent, attentive, and overall just an amazing physician. He personally calls before and after office hours just to give me an update regarding my test results. He is an expert in his field and only recommendsa procedure when it is necessary. He is not pretentious and is extremely thorough. The best part is that his office checked up on me months after my medical procedures just to make sure that I am well. The girls that work there are professional. Dr. Tsynman genuinely cares about his patients. I cannot recommend him highly enough.

He makes you feel at ease and explains to you everything you need to know. He isthe definition of class act. The only downside is that I can’t pick him as a primary doctor since he is a specialist.

I feel like my diagnosis could have been handled by Dr Tsynaman however I was referred to a surgeon who stated all I needed was an antibiotic which the Gastroentorologist should have already prescribed based on my condition from the colonoscopy.Nice doctor however I felt he could have done more fore my condition

I rarely ever leave feedbacks but this doctor definitely deserves one. My waiting took long but it was okay because he had to cover another doctor's shift which is understandable. Most doctors just look at me and then prescribe me alaxative. But, he took his time to listen and examine me. I highly recommend.
