Dr. Tewfik was more than amazing for my visit. I was concerned about seeing a male doctor for my medical concern this time. However, Dr. Tewfik not only was phenomenally polite, considerate, outstandingly competent and caring but also went above and beyond to make me feel at ease about the visit. I have always preferred to have a female doc as a PCP. He showed me that a male doc like him could easily be my PCP as well. I was highly appreciative of his professionalism and etiquette. I highly recommend him as a physician and I felt honored to have been taken care by him that day. Thank you Dr. Tewfik. Sophie was also the MA that helped me that day. She is outstandingly kind and attentive to patient's needs. She gave me the flu shot. The injection site only hurt for maybe 2h hours and then the pain was gone. I have never had an injection that healed so fast. Go Sophie! She should teach other people how to give shots as other shots normally hurt for a couple of days at least!

The doctor was so incredibly kind and thorough. He actually spent time physically touching my body to see if he can get more information or thorough diagnosis about what is going on. He seemed to really know the testing to rule out certain things, and what to do to get more details about what was exactly going on. He also used a dictator while he was in the room and it made me really get a full picture of his thoughts and the plan for future care. He was just very thorough and kind. I appreciated his level of care and willingness to listen.

I really appreciated the information the Doc provided both about my current health and prescription he was giving me. He was also aware of the potential high cost and was able to offer similar meds that were equally as effective but maybe at a lower cost. I felt very comfortable with him!Thanks!

There was no follow up with Dr. Tewfik even though I called the office several times. I wasn't told if my infection was viral or bacterial, so we had to guess on taking antibiotics.

I've referred at least 2 other people to transition their primary care to Dr. Tewfik. I always feel that he listens attentively, investigates thoroughly, and I never feel rushed when I see him. We need more providers like Dr. Tewfik in this world.

I emailed the Doctor about continuing to take a medication since my labs were good and I may not need it. I did not get a response from the doctor but from another staff person whom apparantly thought I wanted a refill. READ THT EMAIL, IT IS SIMPLE! A simple question that after multiple communications and at least 20 minutes wasted time could have been answered in 5 seconds by the doc. Why cant he read emails directed to him when he is offered as a recipient at the start? Today one of your staff hung up on me. You Obviously have a ton of work to do if you are to walk your talk.

Dr Tewfik has consistently been an excellent health care provider for me.. He spends more time and ask more questions than providers I have had in the past.. I feel he listens to my questions, answers, and concerns. Hands down, the best Dr I have had

This was my first time meeting doctor Tewfik And I was super happy with our interaction. He came well prepared and recalled my past medical history. He explained some processes empathetically using his own experience as examples. Listen to my concerns and took positive action. Even though this is just a routine annual physical the doctor was thorough and I look forward to him being my primary care provider.

Dr Tewfik has been my primary care provider for ~17 years. I trust him and value our relationship very much. I have high & specific standards for my providers, as I believe that the dr-patient relationship is critical to one's HEALTH, in addition to one's health CARE. I know a lot of people who are afraid of their drs, cannot rely on them, feel intimidated or concerned about being judged.

Dr. Tewfik was very prepared, read my file prior to visit. Asked me questions and recommended healthy habits such as daily yoga. He changed my Rx slightly for me to see if it works better. Also, he is the 1st doctor that I felt truly cared about my health.

Dr.Tewfik was a good listener and he provided me with information that has been very helpful in my recovery from the heart valve and stent procedure that I had. What a great feeling to have another person that is sharing their expertise and knowledge with me!

Dr. Tewfik listened carefully to what I said, and spoke so that I could hear him. My hearing aids are sometimes inadequate. He helped me make a plan for my recovery. I had written down questions and comments I had about a bout of diverticulitis I was getting over, as well as headaches and back pain I was experiencing. He was thorough and thoughtful with his recommendations. He printed out a summary of our visit and thorough instructions on new prescriptions he ordered for me. My wife and I feel very confident in him and appreciate his care. I told him that and thanked him.

I had called the day before asking for appointment from my regular provider . I was told I could be seen the next day, but with another provider in the same office. I was very happy to do so! Dr Tewfik was very good at explaining what my problem was and offered advice to see a specialist (which I will do). He did a wonderful job of diagnosing ! Thank you to ALL the staff!
