      Made the entire procedure easy and painless. Great follow up and staff

      dr tajong is a very good gastro doctor, but his staff was very rude to me when I called 10 days later to see if dr Tajong had the results of a biopsy , I was told on the 7th day that drnTajong was not in town to call back after Wednesday which I did on Thursday, and the staff lady that spoke to me was rude and hateful about giving me the answer, she did not get dr Tajong she just said very gruff, they were negatve and hung up on me, . Not sure that I will visit that facility again.

      Admitted to the hospital direct admit by the doctor. He came in 1 time in 4 day's of the admission and never came back. I was abandoned by my own doctor and left to be treated by family practice residents who hadn't a clue what to do. We all called his office in total about 15 times without a response and then to be discharged on the 4th day without his diagnosis and leaving hospital with the same awful abdominal pain. Family practice resident came in and said well I talked to the doctor finally

      Absolutely horrible. He admitted my wife into the hospital on Tuesday, was present for a test on Wednesday morning, and we never saw him again. She was released on Friday afternoon with the same pain she was admitted with and no real resolution. He couldn't even spare the time to come by for the discharge. My wife & I along with hospital staff tried to contact him more than a dozen times Wednesday & Thursday but calls were refused.

      Dr Tajong is a very caring doctor, I have seen him about 3 times now and each time I go for my follow up appointment he takes his time to listen to me. and he always ask me if I have any questions. His staff is very friendly and informative. Everytime I have an appointment they call me the day before to confirm my appointment. also they always make sure to tell me to bring my current medications and any testing I may have had done. I think this is very good and helps the patients to remember.

      Dr Tajong is a very caring doctor and his staff is great. I had been having some issues and I need to see a doctor right away. I looked around and called a few GI doctor's offices and his office was able to get me in the same week, I got an appointment for the next day. It was really great. Also when I met with the dr he was very patient and listened to all my complains and he did diagnose me well and I have been feeling great ever since I started his treatments.

      I went in for my first appointment with this Dr. after getting out of the hospital for pancreatitis. He barely gave me a chance to speak and then told me to take enzymes before every meal. I didn't get a chance to explain anything to him because he thought that my condition was brought on by alcohol. I hadn't had a drink in over 3 years and when I did drink, it was only social and maybe 2 drinks at most.

      I was a new pt and nervous about my first appt. the time with the dr was brief, but informative. Scheduled my procedure and signed cancellation policy(cancel 48 hrs prior or $150 fee) I called a week prior for my responsibility, after being told someone would contact me. Nevertheless, I was informed someone would contact me Tues or Wed. Less than 48 hrs of procedure The lady was very short and I thought it was of poor business practice. Cancelled my appt

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
