I have been going to Dr. Tawfik for about two years now when I first started going to him I was walking with a cane was falling a lot and now after surgeries one at the c5 c6 and the other at my L5 S1 I am walking with no pain not falling and feel eighteen again. Thank you is not enough for someone you had given you back your life.
I fell in June. I was unable to use my right arm and leg and was very weak on my left side. Dr. Tawfik performed emergency surgery on my cervical spine. I had a Laminectomy with fusion on my cervical spine at levels C3 - C6. The next day I could actually lift my right arm and leg. Due to Dr, Tawfik"s expertise I am now able to walk and have use of my upper extremities. I know it is due to Dr. Tawfik"s care that I can now continue to live my life as I did before my accident. Thank you Dr. Tawfik and staff.
I saw Dr. Tawfik for lumbar disc issues after having seen other surgeon who could not get my surgery approved, I was referred to Dr. Tawfik and two weeks after my consult, he performed surgery. I am now almost 3 weeks post-op and am so thankful I decided to see him. He is very knowledgeable, explained options clearly and I put my trust in him 100% and he delivered. I was in severe pain and am now recovering well. His staff is amazing as well. I will definitely refer him to friend and family. Overall, just an amazing experience. Wait time in his office was so minimal, at times I didn't even sit down before they called my name.
Dr. Tamir Tawfik is an excellent physician. I can't say enough good things about my husbands experience with the surgery Dr. Tawfik did. Not only did he do an excellent job on my husbands surgery, but he is compassionate, caring and really takes the time explaining to our family what he was doing and what to expect. My husband and my entire family would agree he is an excellent neurosurgeon, and would highly recommend him.
Dr. Tawfik literally saved my husbands life. My husband fell down a set of stairs and broke multiple vertebrae. We weren't sure if he would wake up from being unconscious or if he did wake up would he be paralyzed. Dr. Tawfik walked us through his surgical plan for my husband, his recuperation period and his planned recovery. Everything went perfect and my husband was able to return to work after 6 months of healing. Dr. Tawfik and his staff were a pleasure to work with. I Highly recommend them.

I was extremely fortunate to have Dr. Tamir Tawfik consult me on an emergency basis for Cauda Equina Syndrome. He saved me from being paralyzed. There are no words to express how much I appreciate not only his expertise, bedside manner but the calm and precise way he explains procedures and update. His team is equally professional and pleasure to interact with. I cannot say enough how much I appreciate all Dr. Tawfik has done for me.
