All of whom as soon as they hear me mention his name would perk up and respond with some type of comment similar to "Wow! you had the best!" I truly feel, and know, I truly did have the best! Hi Dr. T! Almost two years out now from my mako + ACL surgery. Pain is almost gone! I'm doing yoga, lifting weights spinning and planning a 5 day backpacking trip in September. I am happy to say the surgery is a success. Thank you for everything.
read moreDr. Tarlow's practice model is based on a one on one patient contact allowing time with patients as a function of the complexity of the problem leading to complete evaluations resulting in accurate diagnosis and ordering of only necessary tests. Health Care Laws, Insurance Carrier Directives and Hospital Mergers aim to provide high volume care by "Busy Doctors" (defined as Patients' time with their doctors being decreased, time with PA's and NP's being increased) which will lead to increasing the probability of incomplete evaluations, more errors and misdiagnoses, more inappropriate treatment, more radiographs and lab tests.
