He has excellent manner, answered all the questions my son and I had and the treatment I will use going forward.

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.
