I had a good experience with Dr. Taghizadeh. I met him in the ER at Menorah Medical Center when I broke my knee. I expected for him to diagnose my break and another doctor perform the surgery, he surprised me by not only caring for me in the ER he also did my surgery and my recovery. Wonderful Doctor.

Dr. "T" was very personable and helped us decide the best treatment for my Mother. He understood (due to my Mom's advanced dementia) my sister and I would be making decisions for our Mother. My Mother is doing fine, even though she does not remember why she needs a wrap around support on her wrist.

Independence, MO – May 22, 2017
My adult son re-broke his arm and needed surgery. His condition was complicated because he is on methadone and is bipolar. Dr. T's staff, including Toni, were great to work with. They treated my son with respect and made him feel as little anxiety as possible, by Dr. T explaining everything in great detail. Dr. T also worked with a great anesthesiologist and Research's pain management to make sure the post-opt pain was controlled, which is difficult for a methadone patient. Thank you all.
