What People Say About Dr. David Taplinger, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

He always takes the time to listen to my concerns. He gives me my options and suggests which one would help the best. He then asks which way I would like to go. He has always been very patient with me and when I don't understand something he goes over it again in such a way that I end up understanding. I have never had to wait more than 10 minutes to see him. His staff is super nice and I feel comfortable being there. I trust him as my doctor and know what ever the test results are, he will have a solution to help with the issue.

I was told at 8am this morning by his nurse that she was putting me on hold to talk to him. She then came back & said he was busy & that he would call me back after his current patient. He never did. I called at least half a dozen times and he refused to talk to me or return my phone calls. 4 of the times I called I was told he had my message & would call me. About the 5th time I called I was told he had my prescription ready to go and was going to send it to me.....nothing happened!
