Patient Comments (1)
in Bristol, VA |
Our son's surgeon when our son was 11 years old. Our biggest problem was lack of willingness for follow up care and very poor staff communication, especially with Dr. Tagert's nurse. We finally moved our son to a different surgeon in a different town who immediately admitted him for a desperately needed follow up surgery. Our experience with Dr. Tagert and his staff was a disaster. I would not recommend him to anyone, especially if you are considering taking a child to him. No follow up care!
