What People Say About Dr. Akram Talhouk, MD

Referred to this doctor for a possible lipoma removal or fluid drainage due to previous trauma. Felt area and refused to do procedure. Wouldn’t offer further assistance. Blamed lump on obesity then accused me of abusing steroids. Wouldn’t listen to the story of how lump originated and insisted it was due to weight. Treated me like a child through I have two degrees and work in the medical field. Acted like I qualified for tv show My 600lb Life. Very uncomfortable experience.

I required hernia surgery, my primary recommended two other doctors, the wait time was over two months to schedule surgery and I felt like just another patient. I found Dr Talhouck and it was a totally different experience, Dr Talhouck and his staff were personable, caring and informative. Only a few weeks later and I was on the road to recovery.

Dr Talhouk is incredible! He is compassionate and very kind not to mention very skilled at his profession. I am so happy I was referred to him when I suffered a bowel perforation last fall.

Very knowledgeable, easy to talk to, kind. He never rushed me, always took the time to explain things so that he was sure I understood. I really felt that he cared . He's also very funny.

Dr. Talhouk was professional and exceeded my expectations during my appointment. I had had a bad experience with another surgeon recently and was pleasantly surprised with my entire visit to Dr. Talhouk and his office. He took the time to explain my condition, my options, and exactly what he intended to do before he did anything. I found him exceedingly competent, compassionate, and caring. I would highly recommend him based on my personal experience.
