Patient Comments (1)
Norwalk, CT |
Our meeting with Dr. Taraban was perhaps the worst experience I have ever had with doctor. After a 7 minute evaluation she recommended a drug challenge to verify her diagnosis. She refused to entertain questions on possible alternate causes for the symptoms, insisting she was the expert and knew best. When asked about side effects of the drug, she only offered "diarrhea" when there were much more serious side effects posted online. She was belligerent, obstinate and insulting. DO NOT USE!
