Jason D. Tavakolian MD
Treatment of Complex Problems of the Hand & Elbow
The following are reviews from patients of Dr. Tavakolian.
“Dr. Tavakolian took the time needed to listen to my situation and plan for correction of the problem. He listened to my questions and concerns, and I never had the feeling that he wanted to hurry up and get to his next patient.”
– Sharon M.
“I did my research on hand specialists and when I needed to go beyond my primary care doc to a specialist I asked to be referred to Dr. Tavakolian - and I am very, very happy that I did. My initial visit (for unexplained hand/wrist pain that none of the conventional things was helping) he did his preliminary tests and sent me for a nerve study. Nerve study showed mild cubital tunnel so I went home and followed his advice to mitigate that if it were the problem. It did not mitigate. Went back in January as my pain had gotten worse and more frequent and I was able to give him some specifics as to what types of actions caused the pain. Based on my descriptions and some more testing he thought it was arthritis of the triquetrum joint in my hand. He confirmed with xray. He performed a pisiform excision on me in February and I am back to about 98% function and ALL of the pain I was having is gone. I still have a couple of weeks to go for full healing but at this point I am singing his praises. He has a calm demeanor but definitely knows his craft. I can barely see the incision. Very little scarring. Dr. Tavakolian made a huge difference in my life as I use my hands in my work. I would recommend anyone to him for hand and wrist issues - 100%, no hesitation. Thank you so much Dr. Tavakolian!”

“From the time of setting up my appointment, to being released from surgery, I am confident that my healthcare is in excellent, competent hands. Dr. Tavakolian is an excellent doctor in his application, with his knowledge of good communication skills with his patient, me. Thank you, one and all at the Slocum Center.”
– Judith N.
“As someone who has been putting up with Carpel Tunnel issues on both hands for many years it is so refreshing to have this problem behind me. Dr. Tavakolian did a fabulous job, I am healing up much quicker than I had anticipated. He explained what he was going to do, and what to expect for recovery. I have used Slocum doctors for a few things over the years and have always had very good care from all of the staff. I wish all of my experiences with the medical community were as competent as the crew I have experienced at Slocum.”
– Bruce B.
“Many thanks to Dr. Tavakolian for the expert surgery he performed to correct my Carpal Tunnel problem on my right hand. Well done Doc!”
– George S.
“Initial contact was with the PA Dan Linder who did the intake and evaluation. After identifying the issue, he reached out and had Dr. Tavakolian come in and discuss my options. Dr. Tavakolian was very upfront and realistic with expectations on what could and not be expected from the proposed nerve surgery. Surgery was scheduled later that week, and the whole process was very smooth and professional. Results have been exactly as the doctor expected and discussed with me. Slocum Center for Orthopaedics & Spine Center has many specialists and seems to refer you to the one that can do you most for you.”
– Glen F.
“Dr. Tavakolian was professional, approachable, clear, and helpful. I was very satisfied with my experience throughout my pre-surgery, surgery, and rehab time.”
– Thomas D.
“He took care of my needs. Bedside manners were great. He listened to my needs.”
– Marilyn B.
“Very patient and kind. Before surgery (while waiting for my blood pressure to go down) we were all discussing my dog's upcoming ACL surgery and how both my carpal tunnel surgery hands would be prepared for an 80 lb. dog and her healing. I was reassured and the process went very well. Within a week I found out that Doctor Slocum had invented the procedure my dog was having and I was so proud to have that connection and support from everyone.”
– Diana M.
“Dr. Tavakolian was prompt, professional, courteous, and informative.”
– Eric A.
“Dr. Tavakolian is a gentleman with a quiet manner. I found him to be caring and very knowledgeable and he spent time with me explaining what to expect if I chose to have a joint replacement on my finger. He was honest and answered my questions. I am awaiting a surgery date, and I have confidence that I can expect my joint replacement to be a success. I would highly recommend Dr. Tavakolian if you are thinking about hand surgery. He is highly experienced.”
– Tina B.
“This was the second surgery on my long finger. I had no problems and very little pain. I would definitely recommend Dr. Tavakolian and would see him for my hand again.”
