I love Dr. Tarakji. I have seen him for over 35 years; beginning as a child patient. In the past few years his office staff has went down the tubes. Most of the office staff is not friendly. The optical personnel is nice and helpful but the rest of the staff is less than desired.

Dr. Tarakji is the only eye doctor I would ever take my children to see. He diagnosed and corrected my daughter's problem immediately (when many others misdiagnosed it). Yes, you may have a long wait to see him but he is certainly worth it.
Hurricane, WV |
My experience with Dr. Tarakji was absolutely miserable. I waited over 4 hours to be seen, which is ridiculous. I was about ten minutes away from walking out of the appointment before I was finally called. I would recommend looking into other ophthalmologists before Dr. Tarakji unless you take pleasure in asinine waiting times.

I highly recommend Dr. Tarakji! He is very knowledgeable and considerate, and his staff is very friendly and helpful. The waiting room has an adjacent play area for kids, and the kids all seem to enjoy it a lot. Previously I went to an optometrist who seemed more interested in selling me expensive products, but Dr. Tarakji seems focused on providing excellent care and service.

Be prepared to wait 1.5 hours in his waiting room. It is clear he stacks his schedule to the inconvenience of his patients, many with small children. There is a sign that states if your name is not called in 15 minutes to please return to the front desk, I think it must be there to prank the cantankerous receptionist.
