What People Say About Dr. Gerti Tashko, MD

I switched to Dr. Tashko after reading so many great reviews. I was diagnose T2D for 2 years and was put on different pills during that time. I felt "off" during that whole time and knew something was not right. I switch to Dr. Tashko and during my first visit he requested blood work and found out I'm actually T1D and needed to be put on insulin. Dr. Tashko listened to me and went the extra mile to do further testing. I recommend him to anyone and everyone who is dealing with diabetes.

After having a total thyroidectomy, I was looking for a doctor who would listen and treat me as an individual. This is exactly what I found in Dr. Tashko. He identified the root cause of my symptoms and has helped me manage my condition well. He is forward thinking and a leader in the field of Endocrinology. Ensuring I, as a patient, am educated and well informed about total health. Feeling better than I have in years and having successful weight loss as well, I've received excellent care.

Dr. TASHKO SAVED MY LIFE! I first met Dr. Tashko November 5, 2017. He spent over two hours listening to my history of childhood diabetes diagnosis, 65 years of treatment, and my desire to eliminate insulin dependence. He is the first physician to correctly diagnose that when I was taken off the streets of post WWII Germany-- malnourished, and injured, doctors administered insulin as an anabolic hormone not to treat diabetes. NO INSULIN FOR 2+ MONTHS, LOST 30#'S and feel great ORAL MEDS ONLY

Before I found Dr. Tashko my life was over. I was a shell of the person I used to be and my doctors weren’t looking for the cause. The told me I was depressed and having anxiety attacks. Dr. Tashko listened and asked the right questions, he took time and ran tests and analyzed the results against what I was telling him. He was willing to believe me and think outside the box while sticking to fundamentals and looking for the cause instead of simply treating the symptoms.

Dr Tashko is by far the best and most informed Endocrinologist in this area. Am so glad I brought my son to him after trying several other doctors without success. Through his keen and persistent effort, he was able to find out what the problem was and successfully handle it. He is dedicated, keen and able to specifically address each need with great concern. Thank you so much Dr Tashko we appreciate your help.

My husband and I are both type 2 diabetics. We tried several endocrinologists in the past and finally found Dr. Tashko several years ago. With his guidance, my husband will shortly be discontinuing any diabetic medication. Dr, Tashko takes time to find out how we are doing and really listens to our comments and suggestions. The blood tests can be done at the lab below his office. It's all very convenient. I'm grateful we have a doctor we can rely on.

Saw Dr.Tashko for uncontrolled diabetes and some other issues. Addressed all my concerns, started me on new medication and got my blood sugars on track. I've gone to him for the last 6 months and have been very pleased.

Waited 3 months for appointment for uncontrolled diabetes. Spent 5 minutes at most with him. He asked a few questions. Did not examine me at all, did not even take blood sugar reading. Ordered lab work, all but one test having been done in last 2 months and some as recently as the DAY BEFORE tho he would not even look at the documentation I brought with me. Flatly told me he was booked for next 2 to 3 months but I could see his nurse practitioner. HORRIBLE experience. Will never go back.

Simply, Dr. Tashko saved my life. I had been to many Dr.'s about my thyroid and the last Dr. I saw had literally been poisoning me with high doses of medication. I came to Dr. Tashko and expected the usual but I was surprised. He is not a "regular Dr.". He took his time and explained to me the danger I was in with the current dose of medication. His empathy and professionalism I have not come across very often. I felt cared for not just by his warm manner but his expert medical knowledge.

Dr. Tashko takes the time, in my experience, to explain the lab results, compares the results with the last visit and in my view his approach to medicine is holistic. I will continue to see Dr. Tashko for my health concerns.
