Dr. Ivan Tarkin is one of the most caring and talented surgeons I have ever had the pleasure to deal with. He takes a personal interest with his patients and gives heartfelt care to his patients. I thank God everyday for his talented hands!

I saw Dr. Tarkin and his team in an emergency due to a catastrophic fall. He was the most kind, pleasant and informative doctor. With all the broken bones I had, he was very good and gentle in putting me back together. He is a very good doctor and a very NICE man to deal with. I also found his team to be pleasant and efficient. They all nderstood the patient and did not treat me as a file number
