Dr. Tamaulipas and his staff are outstanding. I was very fortunate to be recommended to Fr Tamaulipas. What a pleasure to have a health care provider that actually talks to you like you are an adult.

I was surprised how much time Dr. Tamai took explaining things. He gave details about the emerging data. I felt that he was keeping up with what was being published in his profession. He won my trust.

My experience with having surgery by Dr. Tamai was a 10 in my book all the way around from everyone I came in contact with at his office, spoke with on the phone, and at the surgery center. I recommend Dr Tamai hands down.

My regular family Dr. couldn't even figure out what was wrong, Dr. Tamai and his nurse found it in less than 10 min. They are great.

My family (daughter, husband and myself) have been patients of Dr. Tamai for over 24 years. I have recommended him too many friends who have been very satisfied. Dr. Tamai has taken excellent care of myself and family. I would never even consider going to another orthopedic doctor. We already have the best.

I had a serious fall in 2017, basically broke both my arms and pulled out my rotator cuff. If it weren't for Dr. Tamai, I would probably be living in a nursing home by now and I'm not even 70 years old. God bless Dr. Tamai!!!!! Susanna Maklakov, MSOT President, Maklakov Services, Inc.

I have had many opportunities in my life to be seen at Dr. Tamai's office. I have had several surgeries with this doctor which have all been more than successful He cares He listens and surgery is always your last option in the conversation. I am now going to have another, His office staff is very accommodating to my needs in making surgical plans and to know that I will be back in my home to recover is so important to me not having to leave town for the best doctor makes recovery that much faster in my opinion. thank you.

The staff nurse and doctor were very accommodating to my injury. They were very knowledgeable and patient with my concerns regarding my compound fractures in my wrist. Dr. Tamai is very honest and has done multiple surgeries for my husband and friends. Everybody has been happy with the outcome of their surgeries. If he doesn’t think he can do the best job he will recommend you and refer you to somebody who will, outside of Fairbanks. He will accommodate you during your recovery after your surgery. We are very thankful to have Dr. Tamai as a doctor here in Fairbanks. He is Fully committed to his patients and I would highly recommend him and his team to get you back in one piece.

Dr Tamai is a great Dr listened to my concerns and eased my anxiety. I recommend everyone to see him. I have had hand surgery which he did and you can not even see a scare he is the BEST.
