Horrible bedside manner. Took eons to get in. She was not prepared or looked at my records and I felt like an awful burden. I know my medical history. I’ve lived my life. I almost don’t wanna go back!

Taggert has a horrible bedside manner and doesn't listen. She is very condescending and argumentative. It was so bad that I ended up walking out during the appointment. I will be finding a different doctor.

Our experience over several years with Dr. Taggart has been extremely positive. She listens, never seems rushed and has helped us make good healthcare decisions. She has performed two successful surgeries for my husband, providing excellent follow up information and support. She communicates clearly and directly. All office staff are sensitive, efficient and professional. I highly recommend Dr. Taggart!

The whole office is rude, as was the doctor. She argued with me as to my complaints of symptoms and referred me back to the physician who sent me to see her. I saw a PA in the office and he was worse than her. It’s sickening to wait as long as it takes to get in and then be sent away.
