Dr. Taher was recommended to me by my ophthalmologist when he discovered I had a hemorrhage in the back of my eye. I have been seeing him for the last 8 months and it has been an amazing experience. I would recommend Dr. Taher to anyone who wants a doctor who cares and treats you with compassion. My husband and I go together and it is always a fun visit despite the treatments.

I have been fortunate to find Dr Taher when it was discovered that I had macular degeneration. I trust him in that his recommendations and treatment is spot on. His staff only adds to my total satisfaction of his practice. As I will be using him for a while to come, I can only say that I feel I am in very good hands.
