What People Say About Dr. Marcel Tafen-Wandji , MD
Reply
Dr. Tafen is the best. He placed a feeding gastrostomy in my husband in 2015 and in any necessary replacement followup visits he is always quick to respond and reassuring to both my husband and myself. His staff is always responsive and helpful in getting us an appointment with Dr. Tafen as quickly as possible which is critical to our peace of mind. We would definitely recommend Dr. Tafen without reservation.
