Patient Comments (7)
St Louis, MO |
I am very disappointed to give low ratings to Dr. Taira, but based on the policy of this office of denying patients service I must give a low rating. The SSM office at Cross Keys Shopping Center has a policy of not allowing first time patients the opportunity to be seen if an appointment time is misunderstood & will mark patients as no shows that show up to their office late. Appt. was for 9:30am, arrival time 9:20am marked no show at 9:30am due to their needing to discus their abhorrent policy.

This is a doctor that displays lack of experience for patients health, he responds to his patients of being concern with getting you in the office more times, than keeping the patient healthy. I wish he could be reviewed by the board of health. You probably could be seen by him but he doesn't tell you what's your prognosis but lets see u in a week. Its something wrong with him.

When only needing a prescription refill he needs to see you even when you have already had your yearly check up! Only needed my birth control refilled and had to go in again for absolutely nothing. I will be changing doctors as soon as possible
St Louis, MO |
Dr. Taira has been my primary for about 5 years now and he has been great! He takes time to explain answers to any of my questions and I always have a great clinical experience.

I only go to Dr. Tiara when absolutely necessary. He asks me questions then smirks and tells me I'm not being honest and he wants me to have all scans and scopes done again. He doesn't seem to like his patients much. I will be cancelling my upcoming appointment because I just can't deal with him right now.
Michigan City, IN |
I had a new patient appointment that he rushed through. I have what he calls "life threatening" conditions and take several medications. I also suffer from migraines and he told me that handle that there and if I get another one to go to the ER. Really?? No bedside manners whatsoever. I also cannot swallow when I eat and he didn't even address. So many other issues to address but not in a review. He seems to be low man on the totem pole.
Florissant, MO |
Dr Taira knows his stuff, however his manner and delivery needs work. He seems to be distracted, and seems rushed at every visit. Very stoic, with a feeling of forced interaction/emotion. In a nutshell, good physician, but his clinician skills are lacking.
