      I would never refer anyone that I cared about to see Dr. Tavel. He is rude and condescending and does not care about his patients. His loyalty lies with the insurance companies. He does not have the patients best interest in mind at all. All he does is brag about how great he thinks he is and how many patients he treats. He means that his PA treats....plus with that many patients, how can you spend any quality time with your patients to truly understand their needs and concerns.

      Dr. Tavel works for Workers Compensation. Unfortunately this part of his practice does not allow him to work honestly in healing the injured. I would not recommend this doctor ever.
