I would highly recommend Dr. Tawakkol to all who view his profile or requires a top notch orthopedic intervention. He has provided me with honesty and first class service. Don't go to anyone else for your needs. Dr. Tawakkol is brilliant, caring and tops when it comes to orthopedic problems. He can speak your language and has an attentive staff. Thanks for your expanse of knowledge and experienced care.
Very bad very self centered changed medication on me without informing me because he would get one more visit this more money the new medication was inferior and did not work as well and as a patient and all you want is to feel better ,when I informed him he did not like it and when I called for my next appointment and requested the old medications he told his receptionists to tell me that he only does surgeries now to refuse my service and I had been suffering for six months horrible service
