About Me

I value thorough, ethical and compassionate care for my patients.  Successful treatment comes as the result of carefully listening to what my patients are experiencing, understanding lab test results, and working together on a treatment plan and potential lifestyle changes that can reduce or eliminate symptoms and potentially halt the progression of disease.

He listened, and above all, he cared. He did not want to continue the steroid shots that another doctor had recommended. He suggested even alternative medicines for my pain, such as acupuncture and/or terramac. His view of medicine was refreshing, to say the least. I wish there were more doctors like him.

I think you should stay away. Dr. Tariq didn't help me very much. Also, even though Dr. Timothy Hayes has a video where he links fibromyalgia to arthritis, he wouldn't see me.
