Very positive experience. Highly recommend
I chose Dr Taormina based on a recommendation from another Dr who is a friend of mine. Overall very positive experience. Prior to the procedure, I had interactions with at least 4 different members of Dr Taormina’s team and all we’re very professional, calming and answered every question I had. Never felt rushed. Dr Taormina himself was very pleasant and detailed about the procedure. Also great follow up, day after to ensure all went well. Highly recommend

Dr T and NP Narin are both very professional, knowledgeable, and friendly in their care. Appointments never seem rushed as they take the time to explain your diagnosis and educate you on your treatment plan plus provide educational materials, if desired. Highly recommend this practice.

It's not that serious.
He gave me a diagnosis longtime ago of SIBO I had an allergic reaction to the antibiotics. I also had a panic attack told my teacher his nurse practioner at the time how hard I was dealing with it and missing class, well she let him know and he decided that it wasn't serious. Which was the words he used it's not that serious, and denied me a second dose of antibiotics. Since I couldn't finish the first due to the allergic reaction I had. He turned his back on me and I had to find other doctors which took a long time like a year for someone else to give me antibiotics. SiBO is still something I experience but I have an understanding of it some but it wasn't because this doctor explained. This is something I have had to research myself. I feel I have been failed in my health and it didn't really start with him, but I am upset and mayb commenting on this event helps.

The best practice in Kansas City!
I met with Dr Chandra for the first time this last week for a consultation after a trip to the ER. She was so professional and caring in her approach with me. I left feeling very confident that they will solve my problem and get me back on the path of pure health.

Pleasantly surprised
I went in for a colonoscopy. It was my first one, so I had no idea what to expect and I figured it would be awful. All the staff were so friendly. Dr. Taormina has a pleasant manner. He was informative, answered all my questions with patience. I didn’t feel rushed or like just a number. I will definitely go back for any further need.

I love this place. Everyone is so friendly. Everyone is attentive to what you need and react with you as if you were a friend or family member. Most places you somewhat dread going to. Although the procedure isn't the most fun, the atmosphere makes up for it. No better place to be than in the hands of people who seem to genuinely care about you. Thank you Midwest Physicians and keep it up. U guys are the BEST!
