in Eureka, IL |
I have seen Dr. Taimoorazy since June 2012. I love his bedside manner. He truly cares about how you feel. He has always shown me exactly what he is talking about with his prototypes in the office. I leave clearly understanding what is going on and how to treat it. Dr. Taimoorazy really is a comprehensive doctor who cares. I would truly recommend him.
