      Dr. Taras is a rare breed. He takes the time to listen to his patients, provide thorough explanations, alternative solutions and answer emails after hours! While pap smears and pelvis exams aren't exactly my cup of tea, Dr. Taras and his assistant Corinne immediately put me at ease. Although he is not within network, his fees are reasonable. After putting off my annual exams and health concerns for so long, I am grateful to have found him. Thank you, Team Taras!

      Dr. Taras is, hands down, the best. I'm not afraid to discuss anything with him, and I mean anything. I've never once been met with judgement. He's compassionate and understanding. I never feel rushed when I visit him; he always makes sure he's answered all of my questions. He's even available via email practically 24/7 if anything comes up. My insurance doesn't completely cover my visits to him, but his office has always worked with me to keep it affordable. I recommend him to everyone!

      I have been with Dr. Taras for many years. All of the stars in the sky are not enough to sufficiently describe his expertise in the field and compassion for his patients. There is no other doctor on the planet like him.

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
