    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.

    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

    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

    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!

    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.

    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.

    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!!

    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!

    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.
