Dr. Tarwala was very professional, but my issue is with the way my follow-up consultati was scheduled and billed. My initial appointment was to confirm an opinion that I had. I had no plans to proceed with the procedures that Dr. Tarwala brought up in our initial meeting and I told him that. He suggested that I wait a bit and then let him know my decision by coming back to the office and updating him. He mentioned that he wouldn't charge me for this and I assumed it wouldn't be a big deal. I returned to his office to confirm that I wouldn't go ahead with the procedures he recommended--especially bc they were expensive and out of pocket for me. Our conversation lasted literally a few minutes. I was surprised when I received a bill for a "follow-up consultation" service. I didn't think I would receive a bill after I was assured that I wouldn't be charged and there weren't any services rendered.

Make sure you have a signed. written statement from Dr Tarwala indicating specifically what procedure he is about to perform including possible side effects and estimated time of recovery. If you do not do this you proceed at your own risk. I am unhappily speaking from experience.

A prince of a Dr,and very humane,caring person as a whole. The consult,explanation of my situation was a second opinion U sought. What he told me made perfect sense but was astonishing,plus he pictorialized my condition with a computer program which was worth a thousand words. He loves peanut butter granola bars also,LOL. I highly reccommend him to anyone,everyone and I'm very hard to satisfy. He will be my Dr,forever.

Dr. Tarwala took the time to address my personal situation and to provide the best possible initial treatment option. Dr. Tarwala explained my specific condition after listening to my chief complaints as well as explained my x-rays. Compassion, sincerity and and care were abundant during my first appointment with Dr. Tarwala and I recommend his care with the highest accolades.

Upon my initial Dr's visit with Dr Rupesh Tarwala, I was extremely pleased. I had anxiety due to my hip condition. He was very patient, considerate & understanding. As to date, he continues to exhibit these qualities. Dr Rupesh Tarwala is very thorough & very clear in all explanations regarding pre-op, post-op, P/T & other follow up events. While doing all of this, he's very tentative to the patients' care & health healing needs. I would definitely refer other friends & family to him.

I highly recommend Dr. Rupeshh Tarwala. If you need a knee replacement he would be the person to go to.The first time I met him we went over all the issues I was experiencing with my knee for the past 18 yrs. Explained what were my options and how my pain would diminish as well as the quality of life would improve. During my surgery and time at the hospital he was constantly on top of things and answering any question I had.
