Dr Tarek is an amazing professional. He makes sure he understood my issue and gave me detailed brief on what his treatment plan and what to expect. I have benefited immensely from his treatment, getting me to be mobile after 3 years of injury. He is truly gifted in the field of orthopedic treatment. He comes in highly recommended for future treatments.
