Dr. Tarkin is as good as it gets. He is the best! His staff is well trained and professional. I had a very bad injury resulting from a fall and because of his excellent surgery I am able to walk and perform daily activities without requiring assistance ahead of anticipated schedule. I am very lucky to have Dr. Tarkin as my doctor!

Dr.Tarkin and this office was the best ever. Excellent service, timely appointments, and they explained every part of the process so that I could clearly understand my care!

He saved my life, and put me back together after a horrific motorcycle accident. I lost my leg, a finger and had many many broken bones. Many screws hold me together now. The entire surgical team did an awesome job.

Dr. Ivan Tarkin, his medical staff, and his office staff provided positive experiences during my visits.

We waited over 90 minutes to see the doctor. It's unacceptable to make a 90 year old with dementia that long.

Tarkin provided all the information I needed on my injury so that I could make an informed decision. He listened to my concerns, provided information, and made sure I knew all the pros and cons of my decision. I couldn't have asked for a better visit.
