I have been a patient of Dr Tahir for awhile now she has been a good listener to my complain explain my condition In the simplest way she is concerned about the level of my pain I have recommended my mom to her she was so satisfied to have a doctor like Dr Tahir because mom's blood pressure stayed in the normal range when she visited. every time I go to the doctor I always leave satisfied. I recommended Dr Tahir to many of my friends and they are also satisfied. Office staff are also friendly.

My first visit was great I thought. She listened and ordered blood work. My 2nd visit, however, was not so great. She literally rushed me out of the room like she was not interested in my problems at all. She did not explain my condition to me hardly at all. I had made a list of questions I had and she took the list, skimmed through it and told me I was a complicated patient. She then proceeded to rush me out the door. Whatever. I'll find another doctor.

During my second visit to see Dr. Tahir, I was in the middle of asking a question when she walked over to me, shook my hand, said thank you, and walked out. I have never felt so demeaned by a physician. I understand there are other patients and doctors have schedules to stick to, but it's this kind of behavior that leads to the mistrust between patients and physicians. I'm not going back to see Dr. Tahir and wouldn't recommend anyone to see her.

I found Dr Tahir to e rude and abrupt. She talked in He can go on and stated I have arthritis and fibromyalgia and possibly lupus. She failed to explain why she thought I at have lupus. She failed to listen to me. She dismissed me as if she were nothing and she was superior. I refuse to see Dr Tahir again. If you are referred by your Primary Doctor, you should ask for a different referral.

I have previously seen a rheumatologist and she disagreed with every treatment they gave me without actually seeing my records. She suggested I stopped taking my ALL MY MEDICATION, which allows me to be functional for an entire month. I don't know about you, but I can't be in crippling joint pain for a month especially while keeping a job down. She completely dismissed me and made me feel like she thought it was all in my head. If you're a younger patient, I would avoid her like the plague

Dr. Tahir treated me as if I were wasting her time. I have to drive 45 minutes one way to see her, I expected to be treated as if my conditions are not in my head. I have severe psoriasis which she refused to even address. I have since found a doctor closer to home that is more than willing to help me. I would not recommend Dr. Tahir if you are looking to be treated and cared for fairly.

I have been going for quite awhile now. She always listens and tries to solve what she can. I have never felt that Dr. Tahir did not care. I have recommended her and would again.
