Patient Comments (5)

My son was a patient in the ICU. Dr. Tahir was called in for consultation and wanted change my son's seizure medications while he was in critical condition. I objected to any change and told him so. I said I wanted to talk to our own neurologist when my son was more stable . He stepped out a minute and came back saying he called our doctor who agreed with him. I spoke with our doctor later and found he had not be contacted at all. Dr. Tahir lied to me and changed the meds against my wishes

We have been with Dr Tahir for years..he is very professional and is genuinely concerned about my well being. Dr.Tahir is always available to us when needed. He listens to me when I talk to him and answers all our questions regarding my Parkinsons. We have recommended him to friends and family...

I explained all of my symptoms, and he sent me for an Mri which came back normal. Based on those results, he told me to see a psychiatrist. He is, in my opinion, a terrible Doctor.

TERRIBLE. Without my permission, Dr. Tahir invited a resident and doctor to watch the procedure. I even had to introduce myself, almost feeling like I was teaching people manners for the first time. Next, while asking my symptoms, Dr. Tahir became increasingly impatient and condescending. After I said, I do not appreciate the way you are speaking to me, his attitude somewhat improved. But when he was done, he just pointed out where the bandaids were. I am appauled. PEOPLE DESERVE RESPECT!

I wondered why I could get an appointment the same week when every other neurologist would be months, I do not wonder that anymore. Dr Tahir has very little skill in dealing with patients. My first visit I asked him if he was angry with me about something, the second visit was fine, the third visit what sent me over the top. I have never felt like I was inconveniencing a doctor so much.
