Dr. Leslie Tar has the following 2 specialties

  • Rheumatology

    A rheumatologist is a physician who has received extensive training in diagnosing and treating rheumatic conditions. Rheumatic conditions involve the joints, soft tissues, autoimmune system, vascular system, and connective tissues.
    Some of the conditions that rheumatologists treat are rheumatoid arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, gout, sarcoidosis, vasculitis, and lupus. These are all conditions that involve a lot of pain and make mobility difficult. Rheumatologists use medications, such as analgesics, NSAIDs, steroids, DMARDs, infliximab, and adalimumab, as well as occupational therapy, in order to decrease pain and improve a patient's quality of life.

  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

No more Humana

I have to leave Humana because they would let my doctors practice medicine and I can't get the care I need even when my doctors fight for me. This is open enrollment and it is time to switch.

Great doctor.

This is a great doctor. Don't believe it? Why does it take 3 months to get in to see him as a new patient--because it is worth it. Sorry, want NARCOTICS--go somewhere else. Check his credentials--have you ever seen anyone else with his training? Now you know.

Dissappointed Patient

This is without a doubt the worst experience I have ever had at a "doctor's" office. I became suspicious when I read the ratings because of the mass of 5 star ratings and 22 worst ratings and almost nothing in between. After a visit to Tar's office, these doubts were confirmed. Tar's office was hard to find with no sign on the front of the building. It looked unkept and the front door was difficult to open. Inside the waiting room was filthy. I went to the reception area and thought I was in the wrong place because of all the attorney plaques and signs on the wall.

Malpractice through patient abandonment

He terminated treatment with me after more than 2 years with no notice, no offer to refer or to send records. Office staff is totally non-cooperative. I have filed a complaint with the Florida Medical Board

Friendly Staff
