Patient Reviews (1)
in Las Vegas, NV |
Dr. Tavares was the doctor who treated me when I came into the hospital in extreme pulmonary failure. Although I was not coherent for most of my treatment including double intubations, my husband was the one who dealt with Dr. Tavares and said that he instilled confidence and competency that relieved a lot of his apprehensions about my condition. Dr. Tavares saw me through a very life threatening time and brought me back from the edge.
