The following are reviews from patients of Dr. Tuman.
“My experience with everyone at Slocum Center for Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine was excellent, from the intake personnel to the medical staff to the rehab staff I am so glad I chose Slocum Center for Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine for my care.”
– Clinton H.
“I hadn't realized quite how painful my shoulder was before surgery until suddenly, the pain was gone. Even immediately following my shoulder replacement, there was very little pain; I used Tylenol instead of stronger pain medication. I have only praise for Dr. Tuman and Slocum Center for Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine.”
– Dee G.
“Good. No complaints about my care. The clinic is well staffed and organized.”
– Jeannette R.
“I was scared knowing I was going to have to get surgery. On the way up the elevator to my appointment. I was talking with a woman who had had a reverse rebuild. She said she could move and much less pain. Then I met with my doctor. I felt that his knowledge of my shoulders anatomy and needs are excellent. I think I trust his skills and care for his patients. And on the way down a man with us, his wife shared that he had to get a rebuild and is not hurting and has mobility. I'm ready! I'm in good hands.”
– Dorothy B.

“The whole experience has been good with friendly competent and efficient staff with excellent facilities.”
– Bradford C.
“I liked the way Dr. Tuman took the time to describe my issue, drawing pictures and making sure I understood what the problem is/was. Listened to my concerns and addressed them with me, not to me.”
– James S.
“Short but effective with Dr. Tuman.”
– Marcus R.
“I am 76 years old and suffered a fall on the ice landing on my shoulder. After the initial consult with Dr. Koester, and after the MRI showed two massive tears of my rotator cuff, he recommended Dr. Tuman, and Dr, Tuman explained all the ins and outs of how he would approach the surgery. I really liked him being up front and honest with me, and letting me know because of the massive tears, and my age being a factor, he said he felt that repairing rather than replacement would be the way he would recommend. I went the way he recommended, and am very happy with the outcome. Dr. Tuman listened to me and allayed my concerns of what I could expect from the surgery. I would highly recommend Dr. Tuman as a surgeon, and a man that is genuinely concerned, and he possesses a great bedside manner.”
– Doug S.
“Dr. Tuman did rotator cuff surgery on both shoulders last year. He and his staff were great. I asked a lot of questions about my procedures and recovery, and they took the time to answer them. I even had calls returned to my home several times. Otherwise, I probably would have Googled to find info and the web isn't always accurate. The nerve block really helped me get through the first 3-4 days.”
