I had concerns about being in a "big city" enviroment for surgery & aftercare. Dr Tarkin & his staff were confident & compassionate from the initial 1st visit to surgery day & aftercare in the hospital. Everyone involved in my recovery was absolutely professional, encouraging & warm hearted.

I have nothing but praise for dr Ivan Tarkin. In addition to being a skillful surgeon he seems to be genuinely concerned with my recovery and how it may impact me and my family moving forward. He explained what I can expect and decisions I may have to make based on options available.
