My 80 year old mother saw Dr. Tarin for problems swallowing, she had lost over 30 pound in the last 6 moths. An X-ray was ordered which showed a pouch in her esophagus which was preventing food from passing normally. Dr. Tarin was able to fix this with a procedure that was performed through her mouth instead of an incision through the neck. She was eating normally the next day has has been gaining her weight back! Thank you so much Dr. Tarin, we appreciate what you've done so much!

I came to Dr. Tarin for severe Sinusitis. He recommended surgery. After surgery and medication, I actually got worse than before surgery. The doctor kept prescribing medications that work when on them, yet cannot take them all the time. I then went to an allergist, who determined I was allergic to mites. Doctor Tarin never recommended I see an allergist. I then got a HEPA filter and special allergen bedding, where now I feel much better. I think surgery was a waste of time and not required.

Did not have a positive experience with Dr. Tarin. He was rushed, and it seemed like I was an inconvenience in his day. Prescribed an outrageously priced nasal spray that did little to help my symptoms. Upon my revisit, suggested that I have an MRI and would probably would have to have nasal surgery. Again, he was rushed in this visit. Probably didn't see him 5 minutes. After the MRI, he said you are fine. He did not give me any other suggestions as to what might be causing my symptoms.

Woke up and suddenly had no hearing in one ear. Able to see Dr Tarin same day due to cancellation. He said my ears are clear and clean so he sent me next door for hearing test. Then he diagnosed me with Sudden Idiocratic Hearing Loss and prescribed steroids which is the only thing known to help my condition. My hearing was back to normal after two days!!!!!! Dr Tarin said it was good I came in so soon or there's nothing he could do, but hearing could have came back on it's own. THANK YOU!!!!!!

Dr. Tarin is an AWESOME doctor! He diagnosed what was wrong with my nose the same day I saw him which made me feel so much better. I had to havr surgery to get the problem fixed and afterwards I felt like myself again! Best feeling in the world is being able to smell after 3 miserable years of not being able to use my nose. I cried tears of joy and am very grateful and thankful for having him as my doctor! I was so relieved wjen I could finally sing to my now 6 month old without crying. ??

After 35 years of nonstop sinus infections and numerous different doctors, Dr. Tarin has given me my life back. I can not thank him enough. I have been his patient for at least 10 years and he kept me infection free for at least five of those years!

During the middle of my summer break, i had my wisdom teeth extracted, and ever since then for months to follow, things weren?t the same for me. I experienced intense headaches that would leave me restless all hours of the day. After many visits with local doctors, i was finally recommended to see specialist Dr. Tarin. He, along with his amazing staff, took unbelievable care of me in no time at all. He found an infection in my sinuses and went to surgery on me right away. Definitely recommended!
