I cannot recommend Dr. Taras highly enough!!! He has been my doctor for 16 years and now he is also my daughters' doctor. He and his staff are caring, helpful, knowledgeable and very responsive. Dr. Taras always takes his time and does not rush his appointments. He always listens and works with you so you are involved in your care.

Dr. Ian Taras is my doctor for about 30 years. I know him as a caring, compassionate, knowledgeable doctor who is available to help 24/7. Nowadays, especially, when many doctors practice telehealth and are avoiding seeing patients, dr. Taras’s office was open for patients during COVID time. Today, dr. Taras’s office is closed for holiday. However, when I emailed him about my needs, he immediately, and I mean it, organized prescription for me so I don’t have to suffer through the holidays. Thank you Dr. Taras for being helpful even taking time away from your family. I am glad I have you as my doctor. BH.

Dr. Taras is absolutely the best! Today, 12/23/20, two days before Christmas and the office ladies have gone home, Dr Taras comes in and faxes lab orders and prescriptions. We had already spent some time with back and forth emails so that he could address my concerns. Dr Taras has been my gynecologist for years and am so thankful to be in such great care! I definitely recommend him to anyone who is looking for the best!

Ian Taras has been my doctor for over 20 years. He has my highest recommendation and trust. Dr. Taras is extremely professional, knowledgeable, kind and patient. While in his office, I know I have his full attention. He takes all the time necessary to truly listen, and answer all my many questions, a rare commodity in medicine these days. I have never once felt rushed, by him or his exceptional staff. I appreciate that he provides treatment options, rather than a single solution. Together, we find the right decisions for me. He will see you through any medical issue you are having and his availability is second to none. One more thing. He's a really nice guy!

Dr. Taras is fantastic! He is knowledgeable, friendly, and truly cares about his patients. He and his nurse and staff are always welcoming, and I know that I am in good hands every time I am in the office. He is always available for concerns and questions, and is quick to respond whenever I need anything. Somehow, even when he is unavailable, he still makes time for his patients. It’s like visiting friends whenever I go, and I am super blessed by each person on staff. The customer service and expertise are 10/10 at this practice. I am so thankful for a doctor that cares as much as he does. He is the best!

Dr. Taras, There are no words to express exactly how you helped me get through this day. You were able to give me a glimmer of "hope".. As you could see I was really in a state of panic.. thank you for being there for me.. thank you for making me feel I matter.. I know that sounds funny but it is an overwhelming feeling you give to "us" your patients.. I am humbled and grateful for your caring and help today.. Hopefully this night I can finally get some sleep.. it has been quite a few day since I have.. I have made the appointments for all three tests. They could not fit me in until Friday 15th. I did go with your suggestion (four seasons) I am in a fragile state and feel there would be a better fit once you told me about them.. thank you.. Normally I am the "rock" so I am way out of my comfort zone emotionally.. Humbled and grateful..

Dr. Taras is one of those wonderful gems of a doctor, who follows a holistic approach to his practice. Most doctors like him are found in Bev Hills or Santa Monica - he is a gem in the valley! So grateful to have found him a few years ago and I no longer dread my yearly exams.

I have been looking for a new OB/ Gyn for several years. I feel so lucky to have come across Dr. Taras. I saw him for the first time in November for my annual check up. He was very professional and thorough. Over the holidays this year I was not feeling great. I called his office who recommended that I email Dr. Taras. He was away on holiday but could be reached by email. I was amazed that Dr Taras responded to my email almost immediately!

Dr. Taras is the most Amazing doctor I have ever met. He really shows compassion towards his patients. He gives you 100% of his attention, something I have never experienced with any other doctor. His staff is just as caring. From the moment I called to make an appointment Kris was personable and kind, she made me feel super comfortable as I was a nervous wreck. The entire office has a true passion for what they do and you can feel it throughout your entire experience with them. ?????

Dr. Taras is as good as they come. Conscientious, kind, warm! There are so many great ways to describe him. Currently I think of Dr. Taras as the ace up my sleeve as I head into menopause. Thanks to emails and his crazy impressive work ethic, Dr. Taras will be in touch even when he's on a family vacation! I count myself blessed to have him as my doctor.
