I saw today Dr.Talwar for my back desk problem ,I was so in pain ,I was hope by seeing this doctor he will explain to me what my problem exactly,,how he can help me,but what happened is ,I didn’t understand anything from this doctor ,he used a medical language ,he was so so rude and not down to earth at all,make me so nervous in minutes ,I didn’t know what he is talking about ,he is a bad and not a professional and the most he is not a kind doctor ,the most important thing to be a good doctor ,is to be kind and understandable and feel your patients pain ,not only trying to SELL surgeries ,I am so frustrated and sad ,don’t wast your time and money and go see this doctor ,who’s call Dr.Talwar

This doctor has the worst attitude of any doctor I have even been treated by. He may be a well rated doctor but he needs to improve his people skills, I would never recommend him. He also advised a procedure for me that was against protocol for my surgery needs.

Dr. Talwar has been my spine orthopedic surgeon for over 10 years. He is an excellent surgeon and diagnostition. Nine years ago he preformed an Anterior / Posterior fusion of S1 to L3 and greatly relieved my pain and restored much of my lost range of motion. His pre- and post surgical care is one reason that I have been able to enjoy a much improved quality of life. I would encourage anyone to seek his care for issues related to the spine.
