in Xenia Oh |
I love the results of my surgeries. He has a wonderful bedside manner.
in Cincinnati, Oh |
Dr, Taha office made a appointment for me right away,. This saved me the expense and time waiting for hours in an emergency room. The advantage of seeing X-rays and scans In real time is state of the art. It feels good to to have a doctor that speinds time with you, And will answer your questions. Thank You, Mark
in Washington Twp 45458 |
Absolutely the best of the best. I have been to many, many surgeons and Dr Taha and his Team are the without a doubt cream of the crop.
Springfield, OH |
The Kettering office is efficient and friendly leading to a pleasant experience. When I had an appointment in Troy the office was understaffed and overwhelmed leading to a 2 hour visit. The visit in Kettering was swift and efficient.
Dayton, OH |
There needs to be a way to schedule appointments once the medical referral information is received. Office staff seems to be unable to do this in a timely fashion and schedules appointments when they have time and in the order they are received. Dr. Taha may be good, but his office practices need an overhaul. Very hesitant to go here as a result so I'm seeking another referral.
in Miamisburg, OH |
I was referred to Dr Taha's office by my family Doctor. I waited 12 days after my visit and decided to check and see if they got my referral. It took 12 minutes to get the scheduler to the phone. Her response told me that I may have annoyed her. I was told that "We answer the calls in the order that we receive them" She then told me that I could expect a call in the next day or two. I think that my call may have put me to the back of the list, because that was six days ago. I found someone else
Germantown, OH |
Unfortunately our oncologist referred us to Dr. Taha for my first husband's brain tumor. The surgery went well, things seemed to be okay until a month later when the radiation oncologist found what he considered to be an infection at the site of the tumor. He called Dr. Taha who refused to believe that could be. This happened in my presence as I was standing by Dr. taha when they discussed it. Less than two months later an abscess burst surgery removed bone IV antibiotics. Be careful with him.
Dayton, OH |
Took my mother to Dr. Taha today for a 2nd opinion. He was pompous, arrogant, and condescending in both his verbal and non-verbal communication. Was not open to listening to concerns. Reviewed no medical records except an x-ray and MRI of her back and said she would probably die in surgery. My mother is in good physical shape but Dr. Taha would not know this because he did no exam or looked at any medical records. He had a temper tantrum swinging the door open so hard it banged into the wall
Springboro, OH |
I was referred to Dr. Taha for terrible back pain. I called to check to see if the office received the referral. I spoke to Karen as she is the new patient scheduler. She was rude, and condescending even sarcastic! If Dr. Taha had not come highly recommended I would drop it right here. The last thing someone in pain wants to hear is nastiness from the 1st. representative I spoke to in a new Dr. There was no compassion or kindness in her speech. I can't remember ever leaving a bad review b
Dayton, OH |
I was highly recommended to Dr Taha by my family Dr. I do not know what his skills are as I never got an appointment! His staff is horrible. We have given them all my records. When I called again to make an appointment, the girl stated that they will call me, do not call them. After 2 weeks I called them again, she was really nasty and said WE WILL CALL YOU, do NOT call us. Well, I waited for 5 months and called back 3 more times, and never received any return call. Not going to him!
in Hamilton, Ohi |
Your a blessing I feel so much better. Everyone was so nice..
in Vandalism, OH |
The surgery went well, but there was some confusion regarding post op care instructions and the staff scolded me for their mistake. The staff firmly denied that they could have made a mistake.
in Dayton, Ohio |
Very personable and concerned
in Miamisburg. Oh. 45342 |

in Medway, OH |
I have gone from a bent over cripple, to a military posture I could not be any happier.
in Beaver creek, OH |
Dr. Tara and his staff are top shelf. Emphasis on patient service is cleat. The surgery was a great success and the aftercare fantastic.
in Germantown,Ohio |
Dr Taha and staff well organized and caring professionals. If ever needed in the future we would return here. We are definitely recommending him to others.
in Beaver creek, OH |
Quick and accurate diagnosis along with reasonable short duration before totally successful surgery.
in West Manchester, Ohio |
Fast and precise diagnosis
in Troy, Ohio |
Fantastic!!! Twenty plus years of severe lower back and leg gone in one day. Dr. Taha is the best, and my back and leg feel like I am twenty again.
in Sidney,Ohio |
Dr.Taja is an amazing Doctor; Immediately after my surgery I was 100% better, my quality of life is better than it has ever been; Dr.Taja surgery is everything he states, minimum recovery time, minimum evasive procedure; I would trust Dr.Taja with my life as well as with my family; He is truly the best Neurosurgeon in his field; I was lucky to him as my surgeon
in Dayton, OH |
On May 31, 2016 Dr. Taha operated on me and put 6 cages in my lower back. The operation was 10 hours and performed at Kettering Hospital. He was exceptional and I had complete trust in him. I was having level 10 pain in both legs and after 3 months my pain level is zero and I am walking 2 plus miles a day.
in Dayton, OH |
Very good surgeon.
in Centerville, OH |

Dayton, OH |
He never come in the Room stood in door way for maybe a minute in two vist I would not take my Dog to him and from all the people i've talked too they would not either I don;t know how he keeps a patient if he treats them that way!!!!!!
in Dayton, OH |
With our hesitation, Dr Taha had me scheduled for surgery for my ASDF on C5,6&7. The pain was a 10 and almost immediately after, it was gone! I would recommend his services to anyone needing his talents. I am a new person!!
in Minster, OH |
The best care at his office and at Riverview health institute that I have ever experienced.
in Dayton, OH |
Dr. Taha is a wonderful surgeon. Three months out and I feel great!
in Charleston, SC |
I saw several surgeons before seeing Dr. Taha. He was great in performing my procedure! I was originally told my recovery would take about 3 months, but I was recovered in just one month. Dr. Taha & his staff were very professional, kind, comforting. I highly trust him & his staff. I hope I will not need a surgery every again but I would go to him in the event that I would. Thank you Dr. Taha!
in Tipp City, OH |
Dr. Taha did excellent work on my neck. I had severe elbow pain an weakness in both arms. He did not mess around, one look at the MRI and had me scheduled quickly for surgery. Before him, I was bounced around between several doctors with lots of misdiagnosis and wasted time and money. Soon as I got hooked up with Dr. Taha, all that changed and he saved the day. The next day after surgery all my arm pain completely vanished. I am more than thrilled and wish I could thank him more than just a good
Dr Taha performed a spinal fusion on me when my disc at the L4/L5 had completely ruptured. It was a surgery I had already put off for a couple of years, bug when they tell you that you have bone rubbing against bone, you have no other options. Dr Taha is a great surgeon. Not the chattiest fellow, but he explained everything well and made me feel comfortable. I hope to never need him again, but I would go back of I need another fusion.
