Care Philosophy

As an Endocrinologist I believe in the uniqueness of each human being. I am also a clinician who practice evidence based medicine and follow guidelines as documented by the various endocrine societies. In general, the one size fits all approach does not work in medicine, and in particular for endocrine disorders, but keeping in mind objective data guides clinicians in their decisions.

We were lucky to have Dr. Al-Taher here in Reno, NV and now he is practicing in Houston, TX. We miss him very much -- he is an excellent doctor, a good listener, gives you good advice and really cares about his patients. WE MISS YOU Dr. Al-TAHER!!!! Hope your patients in Houston realize what an honor and privilege it is to have YOU as their doctor. Hope you and your family are doing well and survived the flooding of Hurricane Harvey.

Dr Al-taher is wonderful! He takes time with you, explains everything thoroughly, is able to relate to you on a very personal level, listens, and really makes you feel like you matter. He is responsive to you questions, needs, concerns.

I would highly recommend Dr. Al-Taher because he actually takes the time to discuss my questions and concerns about my health. I felt very comfortable discussing my past health care since being a new patient. I have seen him for 2 years now and he has worked diligently this past summer with me to get my thyroid at the proper levels when they decided to go crazy. I trust him.
