What People Say About Dr. Rajendra Tiwari, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful
Reply
I first saw (1998) Dr. Tiwari in a desperate state. My left shoulder was almost completely paralyzed, and I was in excruciating pain. This was the result of a failed, ill-advised endoscopic procedure on 3 of my cervical discs, which ruptured one disc. Three more neurosurgeons wanted to do spinal fusion. Dr. Tiwari studied my MRI for the longest time and told me I probably didn't need surgery. He prescribed steroid anti-inflammatory drugs and followed me several months as I completely recovered!

He is a poor listener and repeats himself. And drive you crazy getting the same questions. He is an older doctor who should retire. I told him how many years i had the problem and the next question how long have you had this problem. Was argumentative. Couldn't get a hold of staff and the message center never sent any message. So just poor communication from office staff and doctor, which is the most important thing about working with a doctor to get good treatment.
