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.

I am a long time patient of Dr. Taras- and I WISH there were more doctors like Dr. Taras that had as much care and compassion for their patients. He is extremely knowledgeable and always up to date on the latest procedures and treatments - He is also ALWAYS available via e mail-even when he is out of the country! recently he replied to an e mail question that I had-in less than 24 hours-and he was out of the country!!!! Over the years he has helped me through some very challenging times-and I w

I have been a patient of Dr. Taras’ for 10 years. Through the years I have experienced his personal interest and kind demeanor, respect of privacy, and friendliness to each patient to be warm and genuine. Recently, I came down with a UTI and was going to soon go out of town. It was a Sunday afternoon and I reached out to him through an email. Mind you, this was a weekend. He was quick to respond and prescribe for me medications that took care of my problem. I highly recommend Dr. Taras.

Dr. Ian Taras is my favorite doctor and I have quite a lot. He is extremely knowledgeable, thorough, never rushes you through your appointment, and is very empathetic and kind. I was once his most difficult patient to figure out my unique issues. It took a long time but through his constant persistence and never giving up on me he figured out how to handle my problems. I've been okay for years and his regiment keeps me healthy. Being able to email him is a wonderful perk. Love this doctor.

Dr. Taras is the best! I've been seeing him for many years, and recommend him to all my friends. He is so kind and caring in the office, and always responds quickly to emailed questions. When I started having hot flashes, headaches and not sleeping at night- I was miserable! Dr. Taras really listened, and taking into account my wants and needs, explained all available options for treatment. He worked with me until my hormonal balance was "just right". I highly recommend Dr. Taras!!!

I have been a long time patient of Dr. Taras. He is the most caring doctor I have ever had. He listens and takes his time no matter how insignificant my problem or question is. I never feel rushed and he always makes sure that all my questions have been answered. My two daughters who are in college go to Dr. Taras He is never too busy to answer a problem or concern they might have via email. They are well taken care of! His cheery office and helpful front desk gals are the best.

Dr. Taras could not have been more patient and collaborative with my wife who inundated him with questions about her issues. Dr. Taras was supportive and informative and tailored his treatment to my wife's specific case. He really listened to what my wife had to say and absorbed every detail. My wife has seen many gynecologists over the years and has never received such personalized and attentive care. We give Dr. Taras our highest recommendation.

Dr Taras was born. raised and educated to be the best doctor ever!. He has a caring and loving staff. They always make me feel like they care. Dr. Taras takes as much time as necessary to explain what he thinks is best to keep me in good health. He is thoughtful, caring and brilliant. His patients are very lucky to have him. I hope he is taken care of as well as he takes care of us.

Dr. Ian Taras is the best! He's what all doctors should be. He is very attentive and takes his time. He's always on time so you should be too. He's 100% thorough and is always on the cutting edge with solutions. His follow up is consistent and kind. I cannot say enough about this doctor or the wonderful people in his office. Dr. Taras is available by email which means in an emergency prescription situation he's there for you or simply communicating with the actual doctor..he's there for you.
