Patient Comments (2)

Dr. Tabet did surgery on my daughter in September 2017. We are very pleased with the outcome. He is an excellent orthopedic surgeon. Very knowledgeable and caring. We had many questions and he took the time to answer every single one. We will continue to see him as long as he is available.
