My experience with Dr. Taormina and his staff has been excellent. He is very approachable, down to earth and straight forward in his approach in explaining your condition, test results and potential treatments. He listens to your questions and answers them. His staff is courteous, attentive and upbeat. Consequently confidence in him as a physician and his ability to provide the appropriate care for you and your condition are beyond question.

I have total confidence in Dr Taormina. Although I have a hard time pronouncing his name (that can't be helped). I really like his personality and have complete faith in what he says. He is also my husband's dr and I have visited with him a few times. So, I can I honestly say he is the right doctor for us.

Dr. Taormina is very knowledgable of the latest techniques in his field. He is courageous in treating very tricky conditions that would frighten lesser physicians. I'm sure that I owe him my life since my aneurysm would have ended it had he not installed a stent graft when he did. York County is very lucky to have such a talented physician.

Dr. Taormina has been my doctor for more than ten years. He performed a AAA 10+ years ago and continues to treat varicose veins periodically. He basically save my life with the successful Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm surgery. He is highly skilled and unlike most surgeons he has a great disposition and a willingness to spend sufficient time outlining the problem and procedures to address it.

My experience with Dr. Taormina was very good.After examination he sent me to get compression support hose. These hose help to reduce pain I was having. I still have some pain even wearing the hose. I was told to report in 3 months to check my progress.
