Care Philosophy

I believe in using the most up to date treatments available combined with time honored traditional good medical practice to help my patients. Whether using biologics for inflammatory arthritis conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis or psoriatic arthritis, or using Platelet rich plasma and Stem cells for osteoarthritis and tendinitis, my goals are to reduce pain and help maximize a person's functional abilities and quality of life.

Patient Comments (6)
in Chicago, IL |
Very expensive visit with very few results. Office visit is 350.00 before insurance. Had a lot of trouble getting Dr. Tambar's office to communicate with my doctor's office and I ended up having to be a go-between - no transfer of records. Physician's Assistant was very brusque and impersonal. Also, a list of patient names and DOBs was left up on the computer screen when I was shown into the room to wait for Dr. Tambar.
Orland Park |
Competent, kind and very patient doctor. He explains the condition, treatment selection and possible medication side effects. Dr. Tambar is willing to answer all questions- as many as you ask.
in Chicago, IL |
Knowledgeable. Positive. Organized. Professional. Efficient. Personable. Open-minded. He's quick though. (I like him.)
Lincolnwood, IL |
My experience with Dr. Tambar has been excellent. Very caring and knowledgeable physician. Sometimes Drs. can be intimidating but Dr. Tambar is far off from being one. I like the fact that he uses very up to date technology during visits and is always concerned of my well being and always making sure my condition is stable. He is very patient and always takes time to listen and gives the best advice and opinions. I would definitely recommend him and his facility to friends and family.
