I really appreciate Dr. Taddei's time and thoroughness. She reviewed available records and made a point of requesting records from other physicians. She enlightened me to a condition that none of the other docs had mentioned to me

Dr. Taddei cared deeply about my patients and is very calm and kind. She took extra time to explain everything. The appointment time was quick, and she seemed very well informed about my case. The staff over at Arthritis Health was friendly and efficient too.

Being an arthritis patient for a few years now, finding a trustworthy doctor has been a real challenge whose advice and medication can make a real difference with my health issues. With a wimp of thought of looking for a better doctor, I stumbled upon Arthritis Health which booked my appointment fast and Dr. Taddei consulted me with full patience and diligence. She was quick to diagnose the main issues and her medication and treatment have tremendously helped me. She is a great doctor, and I am glad to have found her.

I had severe pain because of my fibromyalgia and have been dealing with it for some time. But thanks Dr. Taddei, I am experiencing much relief from the pain. I would really recommend her because she treats every patient with the full attention that leads to the utmost satisfaction.

I had read the reviews but decided to give Dr T a try and am sure glad I did. The wait time was normal for a doctors office, in my opinion., and she was very welcoming! She answered my questions, especially the ones I had about exercises I could do. She was very patient with me as my memory isn't the best these days. I also liked that the staff explained to me what the infusion center was. I recommended it for my niece because she's very into fitness, and she's going soon. Overall very lovely and definitely recommend.

My wife and I went to see Dr Taddei in Springfield Missouri for the first and last time. She spent 20 minutes reviewing my wife's chart of issues over the past 3 years per time frame based on nurse's comments. Upon entering the room Dr. Taddei appeared to have an attitude and asked my wife what her problem was. As we started to explain things she fired off "you do not have any problem". My wife was supposed to get a treatment the following day but Dr. Taddei's comment was she didn't need it and that the steroid was not good for her. We had already been through the pros and cons of the treatment with the previous rheumatologist that my wife had been seeing for 8 months. The first round of treatment had done so much to help my wife that we were looking forward to what the next round would bring. Dr. Taddei's arrogance cost my wife her treatment, set her back to pain she use to have along with swelling, inflammation, breathing issues, and cognitive issues. We do not recommend her at all.

Dr. Taddei was the worst doctor I have ever seen. She has no compaction what so ever. I had never been to a Rheumatologist and she was my first. When she walked in she looked at me with such a snarl and said "What are you here for"? My pain was off the charts. On my follow up she wanted to put me on a strong damaging med for something she wasn't sure I had and got mad when I wouldn't try it. Why would I destroy my body for something I may not have. I will Never ever recommend her. Bad lady

I'm a little upset at this point. I called because my prescription had expired and I was due for treatment. This office never sent an updated script to my pharmacy. It is much needed to control my PSA diagnosis. I got a machine stating I had reached the FORMER OFFICE. What is going on? How do you leave your patients hanging that need meds to manage? Needless to say, I'm stuck now looking for another doctor and it took me months prior. Thanks so much!!!!! :(

Dr. Taddei is the worst doctor (if you want to call her that) I have ever been to. The records and diagnosis documented from other doctors is pushed back into your face and challenged. She orders the wrong test costing $700 out of pocket, and then says she is not responsible. She is incompetent as is the staff (Angie).
