What People Say About Dr. Irina Taraban, MD

I visited the Norwalk hospital ER 3 times over the weekend of Oct 13-15. I had severe facial pain that was so bad, I needed morphine 2 times. The pain brought me to tears. On Sunday, Oct. 15, Dr. Taraban, the neurologist at the hospital, came to see me. She evaluated me and suggested I had Trigeminal Neuralgia based on what I was presenting. My CT scan and bloodwork results were perfect. Google THAT! I had a TOOTH problem! She needs to do some homework!! Stay away!!

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!
