What People Say About Dr. Essam Taymour, MD

I am truly amazed and happy with my outcome! I went to see Dr. Taymour because I was having the most painful sex ever, getting worse and worse. Then I met Dr. Taymour and "Mona Lisa". He told me he would do what was needed so I could enjoy "making love" with my husband again. Dr. Taymour is amazing! Not only has he helped my sex life, but I am sleeping better because I don't get up during the night. Dr. Taymour is amazing! He is knowledgeable, kind and has a great sense of humor! High Praises!

This was my first visit to Dr Taymour’s office. I was referred to him for post menopausal reasons and my friend suggested I discuss the Madonna Laser. ( Excellent results by the way ) Since I was there I decided to have a “ standard “ OBG exam. Cannot speak highly enough of this Dr. So very glad I was referred to him. Thorough exam with high end equipment. On the spot results. Office staff also excellent. Friendly, professional treatment at all levels.

felt unbelievably uncomfortable with him and he didn't make me feel at ease through my visit. He was faster at charging my insurance than he was in seeing me as well. Never going back to him.

This is for us menopausal gals. I struggled with issues of vaginal dryness & painful intercourse for several years. When I was using a hormone patch, it was better. 3 years ago I was found to have atypical lobular hyperplasia in my R breast. This can be a precursor to cancer. So, I removed my patch (for good) and also had about 1/4 of my breast removed. Then, I found Dr. Taymour and Mona Lisa CO2 laser-problem solved!! Treatment can be uncomfortable. But, Dr. Taymour is very careful and kind.

I have been with Dr. Taymour for over 10 years. He is exceptional and very up-to-date with his medical, personal, and technical skills. Finding pre-cancer cells”, he jumped into action; patiently explained everything in detail, we agreed on the best plan. He is also a skilled surgeon performed a hysterectomy laparoscopic with little swelling, bruising, and virtually no scarring. His surgical center is modernly equipped; and his wonderful team provided extraordinary care and comfort.

I was referred to Dr Taymour by a friend after complaining about the front office staff and slow response from my own doctor on labs and ultrasound results about a condition I sensed was serious. I got an appointment quickly with Dr. Taymour and he did an ultrasound in office giving me detailed results right there. This was a Thursday. I had a procedure done on Tuesday, and pathology proved I did have serious condition. I am grateful for Dr. Taymour's diligence and his excellent office staff.

Dr. Taymour was recommended to me by a personal friend who is an OBGYN after I had a bad experience with another OBGYN office in the area. I knew I would likely need surgery and I wanted the best of the best. Dr. Taymour is an extremely skilled surgeon... From the very first appointment I felt at ease and knew I was in good hands. I couldn't be more pleased with my experience.

The most kind and efficient doctor I have ever had the pleasure of being my doctor. He is punctual and remembers what you've talked about. His appointment visits are quick but he makes you feel as if you're his only patient that day! He is genuine and so are all the ladies on his staff. They are nice, they know their patients and they make scheduling and paperwork a breeze. He saved me from a close call emergency csection! I'm healthy and so is my son! I tell everyone to go to Dr. Taymour!
