I highly recommend Dr. Tawfique. He is very compassionate, sincere, and patient! And mostly importantly, you can get in to see him early.
in San Diego, CA |
I was referred to Dr Tawfique by my psychiatrist after she became ill. I was saddened to loose my old psychiatrist and didn't think I'd find the same connection with anyone else. I'm pleased to say I have found that connection and I look forward to seeing him regularly.
in Carlsbad, CA |
Very warm and understanding and knowledgeable about medications
in Encintas, CA |
I have taken medications for depression and anxiety and wanted alternative treatment. Dr Tawfique helped me deal with my issues without medications and I am very grateful to him. I saw him for a year and have recommended family and friends.
in Los Angeles, CA |
I saw Dr Tawfique for over a year and found him to be intelligent and caring. I would have continued to see him if I didn?t have to move for work.
in San Diego, CA |
Helpful at first and then impossible to get ahold of and extremely unprofessional in practice.
in Carlsbad, CA |
I felt understood by him.
