I have had (2) appointments with Dr. Taunk and a colonoscopy/ endoscopy procedure. He and his staff are very professional and caring as well. Thorough tests were ordered to get to the root of the problem and he follows up with a thought out plan. Very happy with Dr. Taunk and the practice.

Just completed my second tel-med visit with Dr. Taunk; a follow up to an endoscopy. The results were great and I could not be happier with Dr.Taunk. My previous physician did not demonstrate the care and concern that Dr. Taunk has provided (possibly misdiagnosed by previous dr) I am so glad my primary care physician recommended Dr. Taunk, he is the best! Patient, kind, personable and professional!

It was a pleasure having my first telehealth visit with Dr. Taunk. He answered all my questions and concerns and was very patient and encouraging. I was at ease and had time to express my concerns. We discussed future treatments and I was given a link to see how I can deal with my GERD. Thank you, Dr. Taunk.

Dr. Taunk is an amazing Doctor. I've have some pretty serious health issues an he is a doctor that I really trust. I'm a teacher and it is hard for me to take off at the end of the school year and Dr. Taunk was willing to sqeeze me in on a day when he was having proceedures from some pretty significant pain i was having. Would highly recommend him to anyone I know.

He is knowledgeable and personable. Explains treatment options and findings in a way that is clear and consistent while still being technical. Professional and caring, I would not see any one else for gastrointestinal issues
