The patient that Dr. Tewfik saw before me apparently had a long list of items to discuss with the doctor. As a result, the doctor was delayed in seeing me by about 45 minutes. He stuck his head in the exam room twice during this time and told me what was happening and apologized for the delay. The delay did NOT appear to cause the doctor to shortchange my time with him.

Had an infected sebaceous cyst on my back which Dr. Tewfik removed the contents and gave me the information I needed on care of the wound and how it came to be in the first place. He was very informative and I never received from previous doctors I had visited about 20 years ago about a similar cyst.

Dr Tewfik and his asst. Savanna, are both excellent. Dr Tewfik manages my health keeping track of my many issues. I would be lost without him. For Example I have a hip issue now and so Savanna prepared the exam room so that when I entered there was a chair there that I could easily navigate. Your East Side Clinic has a good team.

Dr Tewfik is my PCP of 12 years. He is THE BEST physician I've ever had, and a good, kind, warm, decent, principled, humorous, engaged, smart, caring man. I rely in his management of my care with other specialist providers - he acts as the hub for good continuity of care. I would be lost without him.

My experiences with Dr. Tewfik have all been good. He explains everything and answers all my questions. The staff at his office are all wonderful as well. Several times he has fitted me into his busy schedule if I needed an appointment. His staff is very quick to refill Rx's as needed. This is why I keep him as my PCP.

I have several health issues which are dealt with by other providers and this provider always asks and keeps up with what is happening with these other issues. This provider always makes sure I am up to date with my yearly shots, tests and appointments with my other providers.

Finally, The problem was not solves. I came in with a very painful knee. And was referred to a specialist. No x-ray were taken, no one know if it was even safe for me to walk. the specialist were 4-8 week out. Couldn't someone in that very big hospital, have taken a moment to look. I like my primary physician. but for this appointment the time between my visit and any real help was huge. The problem is still not resolves.

I have been Dr. Michael Tewfik's patient since he came to the Legacy Clinic. he has consistently provided solid heath care and I feel lucky to be his patient.I have an especially-complicated health history which includes MS, renal failure, and a kidney transplant. Reading my medical records from this year alone is an Herculean task; Dr. Tewfik also has had to be able to coordinate with a constellation of specialists. He is an intelligent, thoughtful, and knowledgeable about my various ailments. I'd like to have Dr. Tewfik as my primary care provider until the day he lays down his stethoscope to retire.
