She's amazing! When I arrived at her office, I was unable to walk without assistance, could not get up out of chairs.... and now I'm happy to say, I will be returning to work shortly. She and her staff are very friendly and helpful, so glad we found her. I would definitely recommend her.

Dr.Taherian is a great doctor I wouldn't have any one other than her. I have been seeing her for ten years or more and will follow her wherever she goes. She's a very patient doctor and listen to what you have to say she will be my doctor until I expire..

I have been seeing Dr Taharian and I have been really happy. Her assistant is first rate. Very short wait time to see her and easy appointments. I am so sad she is moving across town.

Dr taherian listens and is very patient - not hurrying me out of her office like so many doctors do. She also seems very efficient and a medical course that she recommended me has been effective, more so than what I was doing before. I appreciate her.
