Dr. Tauer and his team gave me the most phenomenal care. Treating me for Triple Negative Breast Cancer, he was always honest, compassionate, and completely caring. I always knew I was getting the best care I could have ever asked for.

Great Oncoclogist. Takes time to give you options and tapes conversations gives you a copy on a DVD so you can go home and listen to what was said.
