[quote="bigdog"]My experience with gyn/ob and mammograms has been with Baptist Hospital my entire adult life. All my kids were born there. The woman's center there was always excellent with their imaging services and it is one of the very few places that would give you the results the same day as you had your mammogram. That's why I went there- I didn't like waiting around either. As far as their doctors, there is no finer surgeon in Pensacola than Dr Tyson who did my surgery. He also had an upbeat attitude-"lets get in there, get it out, and quit worrying about it"- that I absolutely loved. Once I went to him, my fears were completely alleviated, and he was right in his diagnosis./quote]
I feel the same way you do about Baptist, the Gulf Breeze Women's Center, and Dr. Jack Tyson, who also did my lumpectomy. (For those who don't recall, Dr. Tyson was the leader on the team of surgeons who re-attached the arm of 8-year-old Jessie Arbogast when it was bitten off by a bull shark here back in, I think, 2002. Edit correction: 2001)
Couldn't tell from your post, bigdog, whether or not you know that the warm, wonderful, and skilled Dr. Tyson has left the area (our loss) and is now with Yale New Haven Health, doing general surgery out of Bridgeport Hospital. Also don't know when you last saw him but he's lost a ton of weight since he did my surgery. Here's a pic:
Not sure why his page doesn't mention cancer/breast surgery; maybe he had to stick to other types to complement existing staff there; who knows? But he's always been a general surgeon and an excellent one.
