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.
