What People Say About Dr. Nael Tarakji, MD

This Doctor grabbed my hand, stuck a needle in it, and bent the needle 45 degrees while injecting, with NO NOTICE! Does not listen to or respect patients. Office staff is just as bad. No courtesy ever, and every single procedure, including EMG, was much more painful than any others I have ever received anywhere else. AVOID THIS NEUROLOGIST!

Tarkji is a terrible physician. He doesn't treat his patients with respect and his office violates HIPPA law. Highly recommend another facility if you have to find a nurologist

I like dr tarakji. Never had problems with him. It’s his office staff. They are rude and unprofessional. Especially Lisa, I’ve been a patient here for 6 years, was great up until 2015. If your office staff isn’t professional, it refelects bad on you. Get a different staff but I will no longer be coming here.

Horrible. Does not speak to his patients . I didn't know what i was being treated for until i was being stabbed with needles. I asked him what they were for and he ignored me and i got home and on the bill that was sent was told what i was being treated for. if i could give 0 stars i would.

Dr. Tarakji is very rude. He did not answer any questions that I had...he even walked out while I was trying to ask about my test results. I still don't know what they are. He does not care about his patients!! I don't recommend anyone to seek him for any type of treatment!!!

Wait time is horrible, and no apology or explanation for triple booking. About 2 min. with the Dr. and he treated me for 1 of 3 things I went there for. He treated me for the least serious,shaking. My fingers and toes are numb....no explanation or interest to find out why. My balance is horrible and I have fallen twice. The 3rd time I was in his office, he was asking about increasing my meds for the shaking...I was fine where I was at. I asked him about my balance and he ignored it.

Least personable doctor visit I have ever experienced. Had my back to Dr. Tarakji as he was checking nerves/muscles in my lower back, next thing I know I feel a sharp pinch. Never occurred to him to warn or state that he will be using needles for this procedure. Horrible experience.

I am really shocked by these negative reviews. I have seen the Dr. twice in the last few weeks and I find that he is the opposite of what he has been accused of here. I thought he asked me lots of questions and took the time to listen to me. He spent enough time with me to evaluate with me for a first time consultation and then he performed my EMG test and was very kind and answered questions. I felt that he was professional and very good.

This doctor is just going through the motions. He doesn't care about you. He doesn't care about his work. He just wants your insurance money. And if you start off the conversation with questions for him... he'll ignore you and respond with condescending remarks in hopes that you don't ask any more questions that he doesn't have answers to.

Your wait time most times is well OVER AN HOUR AND A HALF before you get in to see him, then you are called back, 5 MINUTES LATER YOU ARE DONE!! This office reminds me of herding cattle , pardon the parody, but you feel that way. the waiting room is ALWAYS PACKED with patients. Dr himself is short to the point. STAFF NOW ( 2016) IS RUDE except for Danielle, she is so nice. Do not miss this office one bit!

My mother and I both see this doctor. He answers most questions fine, but seems stubborn to expand on ideas when there is clearly more going on.

I went to see him on 5/4/16. Was doing tests he was shocking my arms over and over again. Then he took this needle and was stabbing it in my muscles. He could clearly see I was having a problem with it. At one point he told me to cool out, it's not that bad and he continued. I asked him to stop, yet he continued. The next thing I know, I'm on the floor my head bleeding and my face throbbing. I had a seizure, fell off the table, hit my head on the foot rest. He let me leave.

This was a horrible experience. the wait was ok, but it was packed. The doctor didn't speak and then just began without answering my mother's questions even when she had tears in her eyes. He stated I'm not a miracle worker and only wanted us to listen to him. VERY RUDE. it seemed that when the pressure was on he had to go back through her file to find out info, as her doctor you should be able to answer questions that I was asking. Long story short, I WOULDN'T recommend to anyone.

Very rude Dr who doesn't listen to you. His office staff are very rude on the phone. Every time you have an appointment you will wait an hour at least to go into the room and another 20 minutes before he comes in. He will spend 10 minutes with you. Then decide he wants to do tests on you with needles that will bill the insurance companies. Please go to other sites and read the reviews I'm not the only one leaving bad comments about this doctor. I will be going to the board about this doctor.
