Best Doctor
Dr. Taras has been seeing all the women in my family for decades. We all choose to go to him because we trust him, and won't go to anyone else. He is an excellent doctor because he listens to you as long as you need, he does everything he can to treat your whole body and mind, and he is there for his patients outside of appointments more than any doctor I've ever experienced. He is so personable, he even remembers the name of my cat every visit.

Dr. Taras is the epitome of healthcare. He has been my doctor for many years and is the most trusted doctor I know. His expertise and commitment to his patients is unsurpassed. He and his amazing staff make going to the doctor the most comfortable experience. His knowledge and compassion free you from any worries, while feeling like you are his only patient. Never rushed and always on point, I know I can count on his professionalism and timely attention. I would highly recommend him and just hope he never wants to retire, cause he is irreplaceable.

Dr. Taras has been my staple go-to savior for more than 20 years! No matter what my medical or emotional concern is, he has always been available, supportive, and ready with solutions, without imposing an opinion. He has always been able to help and dedicated to helping me no matter what the issue is. The most remarkable thing about Dr. Taras is his overall concern for general well being and desire to care. He also, over my 20+ years history, has always continued to stay on top of trends, innovations, conversation topics and shared with his patient following without imparting his opinion, simply sharing valuable information.

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!
