Care Philosophy

I continuously emphasize high quality, compassionate, and extremely personalized patient care. I provide all patient care personally, without using physician assistants, treating patients the way I'd want my family to be treated. I return every patient phone call and answer every e-mail myself, no matter how busy I am. Patients tell me daily that I explain medical conditions and treatments more clearly and completely than any other physician they've encountered- patients deserve no less and appreciate the information. My partners share the same philosophy, helping to create a level of care that draws referrals from physicians throughout the country, and attracts patients from throughout the world.Read more

Dr. Taleisnik Says:

I hear daily from patients, employers, insurance adjustors, and other doctors that my practice provides the best Hand Surgery care in Orange County. Since average ratings with few respondents can be skewed by a few disgruntled patients who did not receive the opinion, time off work or disability rating that they were shopping for, I will now ask patients to submit ratings to improve accuracy.

Still recovering. Although my odds were not great in numbers as far as percentage. He never promised anything. I do have some relief. I thank him for his compassion & understanding regarding my problems. I have had a few surgeries & by far this experience was one of the most positive ones I have had. I would recommend him to everyone and if I ever need any other surgeries in the future he would definitely be the #1 doctor I would consider before any other. Excellent Doctor & Staff.

Three years ago I had a complete face & neck lift. I was left with a huge goiter like ball on my neck. Dr Takesnik acted like nothing was wrong. He performed 3 revisions to get rid of it but left me with a scar across my neck that looks like I had my neck slit. I have one pixie ear and am very dissatisfied with the $9k results. Not worth it and I'd never recommend this doctor. The last revision he was abrupt & wanted to get done and never see me again. My neck looks terrible.

I left his office in tears!!! I have chronic elbow pain and have been to other drs.I have tests done from previous drs and still they don't know why.I was hoping Dr Taleisnik would be abke to help me. So instead of offering to help me in figuring out what is going on he sent me on my way with some medicine patches and pain management. And i still have no answers. Very disappointed.

Dr Taleisnik listens and explains everything and he actually called me himself once to ask a question. my wrist braces definitely works.
