in Nashville, TN |
I would highly recommend Dr Taleghani. He was conservative in his recommendations and allowed me to make my own decisions but very supportive.
Nashville, TN |
Dr T is an amazing physician/surgeon! From the beginning I was impressed with his thorough work up and how he discussed my treatment options with me along every step - he was not pushy about surgery like many surgeons are - he gave me the options, statistics for my condition, and educated me to help me decide what to do. He truly cares about his patients. His office is busy but the staff are very friendly, helpful, and respectful. Trust me, go see Dr T!

I have never met anyone quite like dr.T. I have the utmost trust and the highest respect for him and his staff. I know of no other doctor that I would give higher accolades to and trust his judgement more than dr.T. He tells you what his experience has taught him and lays it on the line. The options and decisions are discussed in depth aND you can make an educated decision based on this experience. In my humble opinon he is a great surgeon and a very fine man.

Dr. Take Ghana has been a savior when it comes to healing my body. I came to him after being in an abundance of pain and feeling ignored and almost crazy, after my first neurosurgeon had ignored 2 heniated discs in my neck, and had also ignored my complaints of neuropathy. He and his team, made me feel like I was finally being heard, and I no longer felt like I was going crazy. So far, he has done spinal fusion in my neck, and released a nerve in both elbows. Love him and his team!

My sister had neck surgery because of bone spurs against her spine and ruptured disks. Never saw him after the surgery nor while in the hospital due to complications. Later found out he never removed the bone spurs and now she is going to have to have surgery again with another doctor. Would not recommend him to do surgery on your dog.
Mount Juliet, TN |
Had back surgery (spinal fusion) with an excellent outcome. Have recommended Dr. Taleghani to several acquaintances who have also had successful results.
The office staff is rude, unhelpful. The doctors are uncaring once the procedure is done. No after care, no communication. I feel like once the money was paid I am on my own.
