He's a nice dr,but they didn't try to help my tonsils/throat that has been bothering me. They seem to only treat the very physically obvious sick cases.

Dr. TARASIDAS is blunt & to the point, which I like. He doesn't sugar coat anything. He is very intelligent, upbeat & positive. He accepted me as a new patient in 2013 when I had no insurance & I am so thankful that he did because he was able to find the cancer in my throat. He was a Godsend!

He is rude. He makes fun of obese patients and joked about my weight as he was called in to assess my trach while I was in the hospital. He placed my initial trach in Jan. 2014, but Dr Rust replaced my trach emergently in April r May 2014, thank goodness. Dr Rust is a man sent and trained by God. He is wonderful.
