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.

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.

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.
