With a blown out L5/S1 Dr. Taliwal was very thorough and honest in his approach to help solve my pain issue. Ended up opting for the Microdiscectomy. I am completely satisfied. Office personnel very pleasant and helpful as well. A friend of mine recommended him to me - let me recommend him to whomever reads this.

Dr. Taliwal was excellent to work with. He's a skilled surgeon who is personable, compassionate and thorough and able to relate to his patients. Very pleased with my surgical outcome and living without pain for the first time in many months. Thrilled to have found him. His staff is excellent as well!

6 months after multi-level cervical spinal fusion, Dr. Taliwal said I had very little fusion. He did not answer my questions and kept redirecting the conversation. I left more confused than I had going in. He did not want to schedule a follow up! Nor did he want to give me a bone stimulator. I went to my spine specialist who reviewed the post surgery x ray and said I should be very concerned with the lack of bone growth around the bone 'chips' in my neck.

Dr. Taliwal is amazing! I have had to two cervical fusions and one Lumbar fusion and Dr Taliwal is the third doctor I have worked with for my spinal issues and he is by far the best!! For the first time EVER, Dr. Taliwal actually took the time to explain everything in detail, and in a way my husband and I could understand, he took the time to show me my MRI and CT Scan results. We discussed TOGETHER the best course of action for my issues. My other surgeons just TOLD me what to do!

Dr. Taliwal has been treating me for 11 years now. He and his staff have sort of become family to me. They treat me with the utmost respect and I know that Dr. Taliwal and his staff have my best interest at heart. He has called from vacations to check on me and he has rushed me in when need be to handle any and all of my concerns. I would highly recommend he and his staff to anyone.
