The doctor was thorough at explaining my injury, process, and duration to heal. The medical assistant, Clarence, was extremely patient with me that I did not feel rushed at all. I felt really good about my foot injury care and how I was treated at the office overall.

the receptionists were confused about whether I needed to pay a copayment or not. The information in the computer said "no" but my insurance card said "yes." I was surprised the computer wouldn't have the most upto date information and that the two receptionists didn't know the answer, leading to confusion and extra time.

The Dr. was abrupt and to the point. He didn't go out of his way to be helpful or courteous. He did the routine check on my foot and moved on to next appointment. I wouldn't go back to him if I had another option.

He did not know what prescriptions I was taking and did not listen to problems with medication I was taking. Took forever for him to figure out out my questions about medication because he did not look at my prescription list before seeing me.

The pre visit reminder calls are horrible. It is slow, computerized sounds like under water and leaves a four minute voicemail if I can't answer the call. It is some kind of automated call and you should listen to one. Please fix the automated reminder calls.

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.
