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.
