Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

A true healer
I went to Dr. Taguchi for about 20 years following my cancer diagnosis/surgery. She listens. She explores. She looks for the root causes. She is kind and compassionate. She is everything you want in an oncologist — she is a HEALER — not just an MD. (And, thanks to her care, I continue to be well today!)

The best physician I’ve been to: smart, innovative treatments, impressive network for referrals on specific concerns, accessible and attentive listening skills. Dr. Taguchi’s personalized approach to treatment as compared to one-size-fits-all medicine makes her exceptional. My family of two former (successfully treated) patients highly recommends Dr Taguchi.

Since my diagnosis with invasive breast cancer in 2008, Julie Taguchi has been a champion for excellent care along the way. I value her medical and heartfelt care. My friend who is also a patient of Julie's tell her that she has to keep practicing, and are happier that she is a lot younger than we are. I also like that she takes a wholistic view of treatment. She has been an angel in my life!

Dr. Taguchi made a number of diagnoses when I saw her for a second opinion regarding the results of a biopsy. I had all of these diagnoses checked out with further tests and through other physicians. All were negative. That is none of them were substantiated.
