Dr. Taiwo is a great doctor! I have been going to him for seven years now. He truly cares about his patients. He is very knowledgeable. Highly recommended!
Newnan, GA |
This guy acts like I'm a third class citizen. I go there for anxiety and have, on several occasions cried leaving his office. He has far too many people being scheduled, and takes long with them, but sees me for all of ten minutes and basically throws pills as me and sees me in 3 months.

Dr. Taiwo shows little concern about the needs of his patients. He interrupts you when you are speaking as if he knows your thoughts,feelings or concerns. Obviously he only understands what he has read in books due to his lack of truly understanding depression, anxiety or mood disorders. His staff is rude, unprofessional, lack empathy & have no customer service skills. Dr. Taiwo is great at writing prescriptions but should tragedy strike do not turn to him. Seriously lacking empathy.
Commentator should state his full name and his specific concern.This is rather vague
in Locust Grove, GA |
He is amazing. Calm and easing to the soul. A Christian man of high morals and a positive attitude. First doc in 16 years to get me on the right meds at the right levels. Trust his judgement completely. Cautious to write prescriptions.
