Patient Reviews

  • “I have worked in the WC arena for a long time as an adjuster but only recently had the chance to work with Dr Tyndall and his staff on a recent claim. I was amazed at their professionalism and promptness in not only see my claimant but in getting the necessary paperwork back to me. Additionally, my claimant had great outcome from his MIS fusion and was able to get back to work in a timely fashion. Dr Tyndall is now my go to spine surgeon in the Chicago area...highly recommended.”

  • “Dr. Tyndall walked me through all my options and allowed me to finally decide on surgery. He did decompression on L2 and L4 as an Outpatient, so I went in at 9am and got home at 7pm. The improvement I felt was immediate and it only got better from there. I recommend Dr. Tyndall to anyone who is experiencing back issues. He really puts you at ease. ”
