    How was your appointment with Dr. Tavana?

    Mar 29, 2018
    After having other docs look at me like a specimen, I was blessed to meet Dr. Tavana. His professionalism and skill are well known. As much as his ability is of the utmost importance, after being examined like a specimen and talked About to med students like I wasn't even in the room, his demeanor is also important. His bedside manor, kindness and true compassion is a blessing. During a long and complicated healing process due to my other health issues, he was there every step of the way doing
