    How was your appointment with Dr. Tavares?

    Feb 28, 2020
    HE IS A TOP NOTCH DOCTOR!!!... My review is long over due as I have been a patient of Dr. Tavares since the opening of his office in 2013. Let me start by saying he is an absolute gem of a doctor!.. His knowledge, professionalism, bedside-manner and caring demeanor are just a few things that I can describe about him. He is like family now, my Mother has accompanied me to all my visits and you would think he's her doctor too! :) We love his wonderful staff as well. There are other Doctors in the office so if he's on call in the hospital, you could see another specialist on staff (Which is great)! They're ALL wonderful and you'll feel well taken care of. As long as I remain in Las Vegas, Dr. Tavares will be my Pulmonologist. GOD bless you & your family! Thank you for taking care of me and helping me to BREATHE!!! :)
