I waited three weeks before I was seen and considered canceling my appointment. I’m glad I didn’t. He was well informed, considerate, and gave me a new perspective on my depression. Thank you Dr Tawfique.

His office immediately hung up on me after I gave them my name and now is disconnecting my calls before picking up. I guess that means he isn't accepting new patients, despite the website saying he is. Would it kill you to just say, "Sorry we're not accepting new patients" rather than just hanging...more

I highly recommend Dr. Tawfique. He is very compassionate, sincere, and patient! And mostly importantly, you can get in to see him early.

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.
