My husband traveled from upstate NY seeking help from what we thought was from a messed up hip revision. Dr Tawney suggested my husband see a dr who did a hip mri & saw “something” . After performing arthroscopic surgery it was found that he had a torn hip tendon!! NY dr wanted to do major back surgery that would mean he would never work again! Thank you Dr Tawney.

During the visit, I felt that the doctor was not fully engaged and a little bored. When I reviewed the visit note, I discovered many inaccuracies -- clearly he did not listen to what I was saying and neglected to record functional limitations on exam. Dr. Tawney was condescending and offered nothing new, just yet another PT referral and no testing other than basic x-rays that he briefly reviewed on a printout.
