For me Mr Tavakkolizadeh has been an excellent physician and he is most knowledgeable (which I know for a consultant is expected). More importantly is the way in which he quickly puts you at ease. This enables him make a more accurate diagnosis. I feel he has a genuine interest in his patients and I would whole heartedly recommend him C A Smyth
