Patient Comments (6)

I'd give ZERO stars if I could. Dr Taffet was covering for my regular doctor on a weekend. I had a medical emergency, a severe reaction to an injection and I called 3 times over the course of 5 hours. Not so much as a call back. Gave both cell and house phone numbers, never bothered to call me...more

This Dr and his office are very professional, I had to wait for some time to see him, but he is the best, and worth the wait. People are so fast to leave negative feedback, and say stupid things that make no sense. I had a great experience and had to trust this man and his staff with my abilities...more

Sat 2 hours in waiting room to see him. Was told needed another X-Ray which would take 10 minutes and would see me right away but in reality was another hour. His demeanor and rudeness afterwards was not what I expected of a doctor with over 30 years of experience. The only good thing about this...more

He's a wonderful doctor, amazing surgeon. The only down side , desk reception and some staff not all , are very rude and not patient . Do not understand how you work with patients and you have none . That's a joke

Waited to see Dr. 1 1/2 hrs in office with two young children. He was abrupt and not helpful. Condescending, arrogant and spent about 5 minutes with me going over my sprain. Would never recommend him to anyone.
