I got to understand Dr. Tawansy's style and sence of quiet humor as his patient at KMC. Now with my Medicare am so glad he is practicing at his newer place there in Bakersfield.

I find it hard to believe that this great doctor has such rude reception. There has been many times that ive witnessed one client walk in and not wait even 10 min. With been waiting here with my son having had surgery. Its unbelievable. And hes such an amazing doctor.

Been taking my daughter to Tawnsy for 8 years, once a year 1pm appointment still waiting to be seen at 4:15pm, regret this experience every year. Only dr but no concept of other people's tome. Waiting room packed full of people, over books appointments. 4hr wait time minimum, ridiculous.
