Dr. Tarkin has an exemplary style of communication with a patient. He establishes a therapeutic alliance of trust and respect. He is an exemplar of patient centered care that he expresses in a very natural way. Dr Tarkin was courageous in following my wishes to save my foot. The statistics were against us but his outstanding skill and fortitude has saved me from having to adjust to a prosthetic.

Dr Tarkin & his staff were the "gold standard" of concern & expertise! Treating not just my injury, but me as a person & not just a "Code" number. Dr Tarkin has staff that convey's his warm human touch & speak of him with such respect & admiration.

Dr. Tarkin is THE best dr that I have ever had in my life. He is upfront, honest, explains every detail to you & has my upmost respect. We travel over two to see him & could the go to someone local but he is worth going to. I have never met a dr that truly shows such compassion for his patients.

My experience was excellent. Dr. Tarkin and his staff were excellent. I can only speak very highly of them and the service and treatment I received. They took a great deal of time and concern for a 78 year old woman with a compound fracture. I would not hesitate to recommend him,or his staff, at any time. The surgery, treatment and the follow-up have all been more than what I expected. I congratulate him and his staff.
