Best care a patient could ask for. Dr. Tsarwhas has been for me an inspiration, wellness coach and mentor for thirteen years and I pray we have 40 more to share! I intend to live to 107 years and with his care I will!

Dr Tsarwahs is a very busy, laid-back man. He always gives me however much time I need. I have brain Cancer and he's been one of the best doctors I've had since my diagnosis in 2013.

I appreciate that Dr. Tsarwhas always researches and finds the best course of treatment for an individual. He keeps his knowledge of the latest research and treatments up to date, which I believe is one of the main reasons I am still here! He truly listens to the patient and considers individual needs. His staff is compassionate and professional. I would highly recommend Dr. Tsarwhas!

He saved my life.
Port Barrington, IL |
HE HAS BEEN MY DOCTOR FOR 7 YEARS TREATING MY TERMINAL ILLNESS AND HAS KEPT ME ALIVE. HE IS ONE OF THE BEST, IF NOT THE BEST, YOU WILL FIND. NOT ONLY DOES HE COMMUNICATE WELL WITH PATIENTS, HE TAKES THE TIME TO RESPOND TO PHONE CALLS AND EMAIL PROMPTLY. HE IS WELL ABREAST OF ALL EVENTS IN HIS FIELD LIKE NEW TREATMENTS AND VOLUNTEERS HIS TIME SERVING AND PROVIDING MEDICAL CARE IN THIRD WORLD COUNTRIES. HIS ONLY PROBLEM IS HE IS TOO GOOD AND TOO MANY PEOPLE WANT TO HAVE HIM AS THEIR DOCTOR.
