I am only 2 weeks out after my 2nd total hip replacement in less than 2 years. Both were done by Dr. Tait & this one went even better than the first! I am already walking pretty good without a cane & the Physical Therapists cannot say enough good things about him & the recovery rates from his surgeries. I highly recommend him & his whole staff.

My Experience with Dr. Tait has been nothing but professional. He and Dr. Nelson were there when the infection suddenly came on and we had to revisit the site and clean it out. Dr. Tait is human not supper man, However he is kind and caring and concerned ,again very professional. I am one year out from my surgeries and thanking God first and foremost that Dr. Tait is my orthopedic surgeon. I am grateful. I can walk without the pain I had prior to surgery.

He is great if things go well but he won't be there for you if a complication arises after one of his surgeries. He will lie and deny rather than support you and try to do what he can to help the situation. His lack of integrity is very surprising and disappointing especially for a man of his stature in the Mormon Church. He is a hypocrit in sheeps clothing. Not all surgeries go well even with the best of surgeons. The honorable ones will stand by you and try to make things better. Not him

I have been well pleased. I have some pain and am about 10 months post-op. I have scheduled an appointment with Dr. Tait for next week just to be sure. My experience has been very good apart from the discomfort. Excellent patient information and caring personnel have helped to inspire confidence. There are lots of stars below, but as a retired oral and maxillofacial surgeon, I can appreciate these issues.

I had two hip replacements separated by three months. Outstanding results. He may be the best hip replacement surgeon west of the Mississippi. In addition, he is excellent at diagnosing and explaining hip joint issues and takes the time necessary to answer patient questions about anticipated surgeries or other procedures. He is soft spoken, not the slightest bit arrogant and is obviously very, very bright. I recommend him without the slightest bit of hesitation.

If I could give him 0 stars I would. I waited over two months for the appointment. I was seen and X-rays taken three weeks prior at Mayo Clinic in Arizona. It is one of the best orthopedic hospitals in the nation. The doctor wanted to take his own and would not take the ones that I had. Thus, the appointment was cancelled. I explained that medicare and my other insurance would not pay for duplicate x-rays. I asked if medicare did not pay would they be free. Not a chance! Money for him

Tait ruined my life. Joint replacement. Constant pain. Infection. Repeat surgeries. Made things worse. He won't tell you about the risks of surgery or the risks and complications of joint replacement.

I am so thankful for Dr. Tait doing my hip revision and giving me my life back!! I had a failed hip replacement 4 yrs ago and Dr. Tait JUST did my hip revision. I knew the second I woke up that it was a success!!! The level of care is off the charts! I have never had a dr who showed so much care and concern for his patients. The response time is beyond fast when you call with a question/concern/problem. His staff is amazing and the knowledge Dr Tait has makes you so confident with him!

Dr. Tait is very well known and respected in the community. He is an excellent surgeon and is a very caring physician. He replaced my knee a few months ago and I have been very happy with the outcome.

I selected Dr. Tait for my total joint knee replacement in April 2013, followed by a total shoulder replacement in Oct. 2015 due to 6 separate neighbors' experiences with Dr. Tait. My outcomes for both surgeries have been fantastic. Before moving to Henderson, I was in the medical imaging surgical field in CA dealing with orthopedic MD's. With my 35 years of personal experience selling Orthopedic MD's, I can truly state that Dr. Tait is in the top 1% of the best MD's i know. He's a wise choice.

Dr. Tait preformed 3 surgeries in 5 months on me, shoulder and 2 hip replacements. I can not thank him or his team enough for the professional job and attention to detail for each one of the surgeries.
