Dr. Tievsky was great. He had to do a numbing procedure on my toe, and I told him I was scared of needles, but he made the process extremely transparent and virtually painless. His bedside manner is great – very personable, likes to crack jokes to put patients at ease, but very professional at the same time. Highly recommend.
Dr. Tievsky is an excellent Doctor. Extremely friendly and professional, and goes above the call of duty. Not one of those doctors that quickly checks you and rushes you out of the office, takes his time with his patients to explain many things, and you never feel rushed. Probably the best doctor I’ve ever seen. Can’t recommend him enough.
