I've been seeing Dr. Tarwala for over a year due to an old injury I've been suffering from for years. I was told by other doctors that nothing could be done about my incredible pain after treatment. However, Dr. Tarwala listenedto my complaint and was able to treat my issue. I'm on my way to complete healing. I feel like I've been given a second chance and have Dr. Tarwala to thank for that!

Dr. Tarwala is great, but his admin staff is terrible. I've been waiting over a week for them to submit a request for an MRI to my insurance, and meanwhile I've been hobbling around with a torn ligament or meniscus (Istill don't know because I still haven't gotten an MRI!!). Very disappointing, they basically refuse to provide adequate care beyond your first visit.

The doctor was decent. He was courteous and was able to address the issue in a professional manner. His bedside manner is also good. The waiting (in pain) drove me insane! It should not take over 2 hours for a visit.Also, having doors open for patient visit? Does that not break HIPPAA code? They keep doors open for all patient visits... so weird...

Excellent staff and the Dr wa amazing. Showed me computer rendering and videos of exactly what my issues could be and further test with an MRI. The reason my wait wa so long was because it was the day before ChristmasEve and their office only had one exam room available for that day. Other than the wait the visit was perfect.

He was very careful about my leg where broken bone was and was being very gentle. I didn't feela pain in comparing to all the others i went to. Everyone were lovely and were there to help. this is certainly the place that if and only if G-d forbid you have injury try him you will be very surprised what you will see. I guarantee.

I saw Dr. Tarwala for a sprained ankle. He proved to be an excellent doctor who not only prescribed a course of action, but also took the time to explain the different ligaments and bones in the foot and how theyinteract. He didn't just read my x-ray, he showed it to me and explained how he used it to diagnose my injury. He is an excellent physician and I recommend him without reservation.
