I went for a check-up on my toe that became infected and then amputated. The doctor checked on it to make sure it was healing properly.

This was my first visit to Dr. Tidwell. I was impressed that he had reviewed my X ray & history from a visit to Urgent Care 2 Wells prior. He did his homework!

The doctor taped my toe as the joint is disabling my toes, and also instructed me to order a splint. In 6 weeks I am to schedule an appointment for injections, and if I need a surgery for Morten neuromis he will further proceed.

Dr. Tidwell is OUTSTANDING. He treats patients with respect. He listens to them and explains things clearly. We drive about 45 min. to Portland to see Dr. Tidwell instead of 10 minutes to Legacy Salmon Creek to see a poor podiatrist.

Dr. Tidwell is a delightful person. He uses humor, yet he is obviously very professional in his patient care. I was monitored very carefully before and after surgery. The post-op care has been wonderful. He is very available to his patients. He is open to ANY questions and even asked me if I wanted a second opinion. He told me it wouldn't bother him at all. I am very confident that I had the best foot surgeon in Dr. Tidwell.

I didn't appreciate having to wait for almost 5 minutes for the receptionist to finish a personal phone call before she would check me in. I thought that was unprofessional and disrespectful. Then when she got off the phone she acted like I was inconveniencing her.

I am a burn survivor with on going problem's with sores opening on bottom of my feet, due too soft tissue from skin grafts. This is my second visit, due to my Dr of 9 years, relocating. This new Dr knows my ongoing problems with these sores continuing to own up , said I need to have part of my foot and all toes amputated. I will be going to another doctor for a second opinion and am not comfortable with his statement and I don't know him that well to think that this is a solution to what needs to be done.

I felt this doctor didn't listen to me and just told me everything is ok and I shouldn't bike anymore. I went to another doctor and found out it was my feet that were the issue and my orthotics were wrong. I was displeased with my visit and had to go to another doctor who would listen to me and help me

Dr. Tidwell carefully examined my foot... did an x-ray and recommended that I elevate and apply hot or cold packs - He said that because I already have [diagnosis deleted to protect privacy] I needed to follow up with Dr. [name deleted].

My questions were clearly addressed. I was treated with respect and care. I have not yet been treated by Dr. Tidwell, only diagnosed and surgery was suggested. Surgery is scheduled. I cannot respond about referrals to others until after the full process completed.

He was great: very knowledgeable, upbeat, knew what needed to be done and was ready to act, but also a great listener and didn't rush me. Definitely glad I saw him for this injury.

I visited Dr. Tidwell as a specialist in podiatry for a foot problem I've suddenly developed. He is not my primary care provider and some of the questions in this survey fail to recognize that I may occasionally see a specialist. Some of the questions are irrelevant for this type of visit. Two questions ask if he had my medical records - I have no idea how to answer that - you should have an option for "I don't know" instead of yes/no. It's likely he was able to refer to my electronic medical record before or during the visit and I wouldn't know that.

the first visit Dr. Tidwell x-rayed my foot and said there was nothing structurally wrong with my foot. The radiologist read the x-ray and posted it online to my medical record. The radiologist pointed out the large deformity, also known as a bunion. I would consider that to be something structurally wrong with my foot. This last visit, he took an x-ray of my ankle, and did there was nothing wrong with my ankle. I have yet to see that one posted online so I can see what it really says. So bottom line. My first visit he said there was nothing wrong with my foot, my second visit he said the only option was surgery. Two big problems right up front with this doctor is I had to force him to stop and listen to me, getting him to open his eyes and look at me may be impossible. I do not currently trust this doctor.

This survey was very difficult to enter my date of birth. I can type - it is so much easier to enter the date manually rather than have to scroll down three separate times.
