Dr Tikhtman is the first doctor I have ever had who informed me had been looking closely at results of my recent test. That reassured me that I was seeing an excellent doctor. . Dr Tikhtman takes the time to really listen. Needless to say he is respectful , compassionate, and not at all condescending, Most importantly he extremely intelligent. I highly recommend him to family and friends
