Dr. Tarakji is one of the most kind and supportive doctor's I have ever had the privilege to associate with. He is very knowledgeable and it shows in his delivery of care to his patient. I can't say enough good about him. I had all the confidence in him during my medical treatment. He was my Oncologist after I was diagnosed with breast cancer. Highest Recommendation for anyone who needs a cancer doctor.

This doc was on call for the cancer center last weekend. I was having sinus tachycardia after a chemo visit. He told me to go to the E-R since the medication was not causing it. I later found out it was the medication, now have a sclerotic anticubital vein since they started an IV there. I think this doc is an idiot, and doesn’t have a clue about oncology. Neither does the E-R, they were very nice but need inservice if they have another cancer patient. I worked for an insurance company evaluating doc for 25 years. This guy is a liability to patients and should be reprimanded.

I give Dr. Tarakji my highest recommendation. He was my late father's physician for the last five years. During that time, Dr. Tarakji treated him with the utmost loving care and respect. He is a blessing to every patient and his or her family. God bless Dr. Tarakji!

I recently saw Dr. Tarakji with a family member who has very little understanding of medical topics. I have an extensive medical background and I feel Dr. Tarakji basically blew me off. He acted like cancer is "no big deal" and "Pooh Poohed" most of my concerns. He talks above the patient's level of understanding, although I had done my research and asked what I thought were decent questions. There was no compassion. I think he might do better in Orthopedics and not Oncology!
