Henderson, NV |
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.
in Henderson, NV |
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.
in Las Vegas, NV |
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.
