Twice my appointment was canceled without notification. Once after personally visiting the clinics and scheduling an appointment. Second time got an appointment over the phone after holding the phone for over 25 minutes. The lady on the phone staff promised to send me a text msg to confirm the appointment which they never did. I had to reschedule the first appointment. The Dr is like in a hurry and would not take time to listen to questions and explain the problem. Again today just returned from the Clinik where my appointment was not honored and was told that the Dr was at another location. I was ready to drive to where he was and they would not cooperate. Very rude and inefficient staff. What I expected from the many years of experience ended in a deep frustration.

He needs to get a better staff. Long wait time and chronic over billing and poor coding. Staff is rude and will wondering why you went to him and how he maintains his practice. Based on waiting room, I'm guessing he has elderly on medicare and medicaid to over bill the government.

Avoid this jerk. From his opening "greeting" to his parting shot in the hallway Taffet was the most snide, condescending and ill-tempered physician we've ever encountered.

I have been told that he is an excellent surgeon however he lacks people skills. He was impatient. Did little research before making blanket statements. Tried to give me medication I reported I am allergic to. In general very gruff.

After two and a half decades of awful migraines and sinus infections, I finally found the best ENT specialist that was spot on with my diagnosis, short and long treatment plan, and when I was ready (no pressure ever provided by staff), I opted for the Septoplasty surgery thanks to Dr Taffet sense of expertise, bedside manner, and surgical team, I no longer have sinus migraines and for the 1st time can smell things. DrTaffet has forever changed my quality of life and I will be eternally grateful!

I’ve been in the office twice now and still no answers or true help. They can’t even send my prescription over and when I call (3 times now) I kept being told someone will call me. How hard is it to send my info to the pharmacy? First visit nothing was given and I was told I had to wait 3 weeks for a CT Scan because the doctor was going on vacation “there was no magic pill to help me”. 3 weeks was yesterday, I went in and he gave me prescription for Antibiotics!!! No magic pill right!!!!

I took my children in for PC tubes when they were very young, and had very good service. Years later a child needed an ENT again. Not only was the audiologist rude to my child, but so was Dr. Taffet! He never once spoke to my 11yo son, to see if there was a problem he was experiencing. Instead, he used this opportunity to give me parenting advice. If you have a child with mental health needs, stay away, or you might get scolded just like me. I will never go to this practice again.

Dr. Taffet is an amazing ENT. I originally saw Doc when I was 19 years old for a deviated septum, which he did a awesome job at fixing . Now 22 years later; He has removed my tonsils, sublingual tonsil and will be performing my sinuplasty. I wouldn't trust anyone else to do these procedures on me but Dr. Taffet. He is a caring and compassionate.

I when to Dr. Taffet 4 years ago and he did a good job. I needed an ENT again so I made an appointment with his office. I spent 2.5 hours in the waiting room before I had to leave. I never got to an examining room and never saw Dr. Taffet. I rescheduled for a week later put 2 days before the appointment I received an automated phone call saying that my appointment had been canceled. Biltmore ENT is a disaster... say away.

Dr. Taffet has excellent bedside manner. He is not only surgical in his practice but in his methods. I came in with major sinus headaches, pressure, and distress. He was clear about the procedure and the follow up instructions. Dr. Taffet asked me a simple question, do you want to get rid of the pressure and the headache fast and easy. I said yes... had the procedure ... now i am headache FREE feeling AMAZING!!!!!
