Absolutely great experience. Since going virtual, had to do everything online but heard from the Doctor on Saturday and Sunday which led to our first meeting on Monday. Couldn’t ask for more than that! Then, he was very knowledgeable and patient in our meeting, explaining everything and answering all of my questions. I’m very pleased so far and will continue to go back. I encourage others to give him a shot!

Dr Tashko (and his NP) were both very helpful, kind, and willing to take the time to help me. I have a history of hypoglycemic events while asleep and began to have them during the day. It was scary and concerning for me but they were able to get to the bottom of the issue, offer an appropriate referral, and most importantly found a solution to my condition.

Dr. Tashko is a life savior !!! Ten years ago, I was diagnosed with Diabetes type II. I have been going to an Endocrinolgist every three month, I was stuck with the same insulin for all this time, never satisfied with the results, scolded me every time, and just kept increasing the dose, then added a second type of insulin, then a third. It was a nightmare!three insulins/day and my A1C was all over the place, never controlled, then finally, she added a new insulin -for which the notice specifically warns not to mix with other insulins.. Then I was inspired and went to Dr. Tashko, he really saved my life! He gave me one insulin/ day and one weekly, a complete new regimen that dropped my A1C by almost 7 pts in just 2 months!! Dr Tashko is just amazing, he is very knowledgeable, he takes time to explain the issue and pushes you to do better in a very encouraging way. Going to the endocrinologist has become a totally different experience. I HIGHLY, HIGHLY RECOMMEND Dr Tashko.

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.
