Would not return to this Dr. There's a reason why you can get an appointment easily here. Doesn't really care about patients. Cares more about the bottom line.

No bed side manner. Very short and horrible skin evaluation. Very rude when I needed to lay down for mole remover bc makes me nauseous. Would never return to office if had to

I took my child to Dr. Tawfik for a severe itchy rash, that could not be controlled by another dermatologist after several visits. He immediately put my child at ease, and was very thorough. He made a diagnosis and discussed the treatmen in detail. I had many questions but he was vey patient and addressed them all. His approach was simple and worked. My child's rash is gone, and we now follow some general measures and he is still in remission. We are very pleased and my whole family is happy.

I've been seeing Dr. Tawfik for about a year now. I've had problems with acne and rashiness on my face for a couple years-worse in my adult years, and Dr. Tawfik has been wonderful in forming a tx plan that works for me. I couldn't be happier! He's very informative and friendly, as well as his staff! Highly recommended-plus he can fit you in his schedule so don't have to schedule 6 months in advance when you have a right now problem.
I had a tiny micro basal cell you could hardly even see. Dr Tawfik cut a HUGH piece out off my right breast. I am now scared for life. It is a very nasty scar. Very big, red and noticeable. It hurts to touch. I have been searching for a plastic surgeon who I can trust to try and repair this horrible nightmare.

Dr. Tawfik has been able to clear up my skin in just 2 visits and I had previously visited 2 other doctors with very little results. I had very poor skin(rosacea acne, extremely red). He's very direct in his approach and talk, but honestly he showed improvement for me in 2 months that was amazing. In 3 more months my skin is very clear and looks amazing. He had a regimen prescribed and it's been amazing results!

I really love the forefront dermatology team is very approaching and friendly. However, I feel like I was cheating with the money I paid to see him and the time I can talk to him. Most of the time, he talked to the nurse and decide the treatment by himself. Beside that, this doctor is very friendly as well. I wish him could spend more time talk to patient
Evansville IN |
Save your time and go elsewhere. This doctor does not listen to you or about the symptoms you're experiencing. Truthfully the only thing good about DR Tawfik is his staff. They were very kind and courteous and it seems to me, he could take a lesson from them. I would never recommend this doctor to anyone.
