I've been suffering from chronic neck pain for 20 years. Although my problem is not resolved and may never be, I've not had a doctor put in the time and effort to really try and help me...until I met Dr. Taftian. I'm very sad that I will no longer be able to see him for pain management; however, he has given me hope which has motivated me to keep fighting. Thank you Dr. Taftian for all you do. Sincerely KH

Dr. Taftian treated my mother with Botox injection for spasticity related to her stroke. His treatments have help in the way we are able to care for her, decreased her pain, and provided her with more independence. He was knowledgeable and extremely precise with his treatment plan. Grateful ????.

Dr Taftian is an excellent doctor. When I came in for my first appointment, he had already thoroughly reviewed my medical history and was an excellent listener. He also had a very effective treatment for my condition and I couldn't be happier with the results!

I've been seeing Dr. Taftian for my spine injuries for over a year now and he really is the best physician I have ever seen. He takes time to review my MRI, shows me where my injuries are, and discusses the treatment plan in depth with me. I have been to a number of pain management physicians who push procedures and an excess amount of pain medication. Dr. Taftian has never pushed me towards any procedure, eliminated my opiate intake and really allows me to take charge of my own healthcare.

Great overall experience with Dr. Taftian. I was referred to him by my cousin who had nothing to great things to say. He took his time with me, and clearly explained my pain, what was happening and the next steps for my treatment. Thank you doc.

His staff were friendly; however, he was rather brusque and had poor bedside manner. He also never provided me with the Physical Therapist information nor referral that he said he would provide in a weeks' time - this was over 2 months ago. Overall the visit did not help with my pain management. I will find another doctor.

I could not have had a better consultation or procedure with Dr. Taftian. he is professional, knowledgeable, and had my pain under control in two days. I had been living with excruciating pain for over a month. My procedure was smooth and right in the area that I have felt the most pain. Hos staff at Facey and his approach could not be recommended any higher. I felt completely at ease with him and he was injecting into my spinal cord. He checks on you personally before and after procedures
