Fantastic doctor!

My 80 year old mother saw Dr. Tarin for problems swallowing, she had lost over 30 pound in the last 6 moths. An X-ray was ordered which showed a pouch in her esophagus which was preventing food from passing normally. Dr. Tarin was able to fix this with a procedure that was performed through her mouth instead of an incision through the neck. She was eating normally the next day has has been gaining her weight back! Thank you so much Dr. Tarin, we appreciate what you've done so much!

I liked and trusted Dr. Tarin right from my first visit. I was having chronic sinus infections (3 in 9 months) and I was miserable! Antibiotics prescribed by others helped a little, but the infection kept coming back! Went to Dr. Tarin who was highly recommended to me by my sister. He felt that I was a good candidate for sinus surgery. I jumped at it. Anything to feel better! I am now breathing better and feeling like a new person! The surgery and recovery were not bad at all, and the results were more than worth it. And, no sinus infections since the surgery 14 months ago!!! Thank you Dr. Tarin!!

GREAT Doctor!

Dr. Tarin is an AWESOME doctor. He recently did surgery on my nose fixing my problems which was, I wasn't able to breathe properly through my nose, it was always stuffy and I had to deal with it for 3 miserable years. It made me cry everyday. I had to repeat myself everytime I was talking to someone. After my surgery and finally got that breath of fresh air I cried and cried (tears of joy) I felt so thankful for what Dr. Tarin did for me!! And I would recommend him to all of my friends and family! Thank you CarePointe!

After 35 years of continual sinus infections Dr. Tarin has given me my life back. I have had sinus surgery and seen numerous doctors and nobody had ever been able to help me. I cannot say enough about how grateful I am.
