"I can not say enough about wonderful Dr. I got breast cancer and I was on large doses of steroids. He was very up front and honest about the concerns with healing etc. and wanted to wait till dose much lower or I was off them. I did wait a year, and tapering off.So one year after myMastectomies I was ready for the expanders. Everything went extremely well. Getting saline injected weekly. This doctor always prompt, pleasant,with my well being always the utmost of importance to him. All weekly visits going well until the Thursday before Easter. I got my injections but there was some discomfort. I am getting larger and this is expected. Unfortunately by Saturday night I was in unbelievable pain. I called Dr Tamberino at 9:30 that night. I explained everything to him and he met me in his office within minutes and was relieving my pain. I was so grateful that he jumped into action for me. Not many doctors would do that at 10:00 the night before Easter!!!Wonderful MD truly cares&great,BEST"
"I could not be happier with the care and results that I received from Dr. Tamburrino. He is courteous and professional, as is his staff, I feel so lucky to have been recommended to him."
"Dr. Tamburrino treated me in the ER. He set me at ease in the ER, and addressed my questions over the weekend. His nurse, Anna, is a great asset to his practice, answering all my questions and ensuring my access to the doctor. I received excellent care from Dr. Tamburrino."
"Dr.Tamburrino was on call when I was admitted to the ER with a deep gash on my forehead. After a busy day working elsewhere, he sutured my forehead. He is polite, kind and professional, and the scar that now remains is unnoticeable! During my follow up I discussed a cosmetic procedure I wanted, he was very honest, he explained that, he could do this, but, considering the pain, operative time, and, Anaesthetic risks, would discourage me. Honest and Very Skilled, I need not say more!!"
"Dr. Tamburino came to Virtua Marlton Hospital E.R. at 10:00 at night to repair my ear, which had almost been severed due to my falling and hitting a sharp object.After he numbed it, I felt absolutely no pain."
