Dr. Taormina is an excellent listener who lets patients fully explain what is going on. The rest of the staff is great also. I would highly recommend having a routine colonoscopy performed by him. The procedure went smoothly for me, unlike previous experiences with other doctors. It also establishes you as a patient, so if GI issues come up later, it is much easier to get seen.

I didn’t see Dr. Taormina this last visit but still recommend him based on previous visits. Saw his assistant/NP?and she was amazing. Such a good listener, awesome bedside manor, to soon to know if her suggestions are going to fix the problem but like her approach to them.
