My experience with Dr. Sang was excellent. She immediately recognized a simple hormone problem that was causing me catastrophic distress, but that two gynecologists, two naturopaths and three internal medicine docs could not figure out or treat. I am indebted to her and a loyal fan.

Review for Dr. Sang

Dr Shaffer is what patients are looking for in their doctor. Someone who is articulate, caring, knowledgeable, and responsive. As a retired health care professional, I think I could have been a better health care provider if I had a mentor like him.

Review for Dr. Ramseyer

I was there for an annual physical examination. Dr. Taher has a calm, reassuring demeanor. He is open to the patient's point of view, even if his knowledge contradicts them. He's not a one-size-fits-all kind of doctor. He advises rather than dictates care.

May 22 2020

Review for Dr. Taher

Answers all questions with respect to patient. Always positive and her bedside manner is one of genuine concern and wonderfully friendly. I always leave her company satisfied that she has studied the status of my health and so informed me.
