Just happened by this… thought I'd reply. Sorry it's late, but I don't come here often. Dr. Tischler has been at this for quite some time and in general is very well respected, also the group he is in is very well respected. I made a point of going to one of his seminars ages ago (even though I had already has surgery because of all the great things I was hearing about the program) with a friend who considered him. She ultimately choose an 'easier' to qualify with practice (she's crazy like that though, sigh) I though he was wonderful and very thorough.
If I may, I do recommend you got to see a few doctors before you decide who is right for you. Compare the programs but also consider that different personalities/styles may be more or less suited for you. For Ex, I chose Dr. Aranow out of Middlesex (not terribly convenient location for me) for MANY reasons, but his bedside manner or 'personality' is what sealed the deal for me.
Good luck in your search.
I just came across this post. I just saw Dr. Thisler for an initial visit. May I ask what procedure you had?
Hi, did you have yours on May 27? If so, maybe we met.
You came to my room once to meet and then we met in the hall later. Hope you are doing well. I have my follow up visit today.
