February 2016
Dr. Tuttle is a great physician. She has helped me get over my fear of needles, she has adjusted my meds so I did not become insulin dependent from day one. The test she ordered after one of my yearly visits located my cancer. She helped me with year after year "lumps" that turned out to be nothing but it could have been something and she made certain I stayed on it; she had doctor Tpton (who is simply amazing too) fix a female problem I was having that I did not realize was a problem; she recommended Dr. Depaso for apnea and that went well. When my long term depression was consuming me despite meds, she recommended a phychiatrist. I guess what I´m saying is with all of problems Dr. Tuttle has been my champion and I sincerely appreciate her.
