Patient Reviews (1)
in Peoria, IL |
Our experience with Dr. Tarantino was less than optimal. It was difficult to reach him in an emergency. Dr. Tarantino failed to perform annual factor levels to confirm effectiveness of replacement therapy. We found Dr. Tarantino's bedside manner stiff and contrived. Additionally, we felt that Dr. Tarantino's focus was on reseach and not patient care. Having been part of the bleeding disorders community for nearly 20 years, we feel confident encouraging others to seek treatment elsewhere.
