If you are interested in being treated by a doctor, skip this clinic. You will be taken care of by a whole group of PA's and a few of them are unethical, unprofessional liars. You talk to some of these PA's and it's in and out one ear then the other. You may as well be talking to the clowns mouth. In addition to this, you will PAY A STEEP PRICE for this service and see someone for about 3 minutes a month. I'm not kidding, 3 minutes. I can't rate "Level of trust" lower than 1, but it is 0.

Everyone in this office have been pleasant, appear to be truly concerned with my condition, and do their best to make me comfortable. I would defiantly refer my family and friends, I totally trust them.

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.
Hello, I am sorry to here you were less than pleased with your time with Dr. Tavel. Our office strives to best serve each patient and our goal is to help our patients.

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.
