    Jan 11, 2018
    DR. Tantuwaya has done amazing things for my back pain! He is kind, thorough and all around brilliant! I highly recommend him to anyone in need of a neurosurgeon! I have NEVER. Felt rushed, he listens to my every word and explains everything in a way that is easy to understand. He is excellent at explaining the procedures and the expectations. He is truly a kind man.
