Tarkin is amazing and I thank him so much for giving me my life back after my accident.

I enjoy being in Dr. Tarkin's care and believe he did an excellent job with my ankle repair. He seems overscheduled and rushed during office visits, however. I wish I would have remembered to ask him questions I'd had about my range of motion, ongoing swelling, etc.

I am so glad to have Dr. Ivan Tarkin helping me after my ankle injury. He is very professional and welcoming, as soon as he walks into the exam room. He uses terminology that I can understand and always answers all my questions. He is very reassuring and encouraging about my healing process. I am fortunate to have him as my health provider and received excellent care.
