Dzeladin – Sep 15, 2021
It was a very productive visit. He examined the area he did surgery the month prior and administered a steroid injection in the area to soften the hardness of the lump left by the stitching. And since then it has helped tremendously.

Dr. Tassler literally saved my life. I was diagnosed with tongue and neck cancer in 2019. I have had numerous follow up visits with him. My husband and I cannot express our gratitude for him. He is everything you need and want in a doctor. His coordinator Reba Look is also amazing and she always makes sure everything happens without any worries.

Dr. Tassler is the best of the best. He is a wonderful physician and an excellent surgeon, whose likeable personality and good sense of humor help put patients at ease. He is genuinely caring, conscientious, and attentive to detail, which are qualities that many other doctors these days could have a lot to learn from. When he says he will call or send test results, he does. Highly recommended!
