What People Say About Dr. Robert Tamurian, MD
Reply
Refused to treat me because, according to him, I didn't need a surgery. Simply, walked out on me, w/out any plan for treatment. As a result, my hip got worse, and I am really having problems with walking, climbing stairs, and severe pain at night - sleepless in Tacoma. Will consider filing a legal complaint. Maybe he is a very good surgeon - but, he is a very BAD doctor.
