Best doctor I have ever seen! I recommend him to everyone! He takes the time to explain everything to me and my family in a way we can understand it!
Sevierville, TN |
My child was very sick and we had been to several doctors without any diagnosis or symptom resolution. Dr. Al-Tawil was very thorough, patient and compassionate and really listened to what was going on. He took the time to explain the diagnosis which helped alleviate the concern and anxiety our family had been feeling. I am so thankful and have such trust in him. I greatly appreciate the kindness and support of his entire office staff.

Dr. Altawil is the best doctor I could have ever chosen for my daughter. He and his staff treat my family better than any other doctor we have seen before. Unlike most kids, my daughter actually gets excited whenever she hears we are going to the doctor! Thank you Dr. Altawil for being a blessing to my family and daughter's health. God Bless you.

One of the best GI docs I have ever went to. I would recommend him to anyone who has a GI or stomach issue.

Dr Al Tawil took time to explain what was going on with our son's condition and stayed with us until we were comfortable with the plan of care. I would not hesitate in suggesting him to any family or friends in need of GI pediatric care. Yes, you may wait a little longer sometimes, but keep in mind he's taking the time necessary with each child and family before you and he will do the same for your child.

Horrible experiences, I wouldn't take my dog here, let alone my child again.
Travelled 3 hrs to see Dr.Al-Tawil after he was recommended to us by a friend. My son had been sick for 3 years and we have seen 3 other specialists. From the first encounter we felt he is the best caring doctor we have ever seen. We felt very comfortable with him. He explained everything in details. Now 3 months later my son is almost normal going to school and playing his favorite spot. We thing Dr. AL-Tawil is our God answers to our prayers.
