in Seal Beach, CA |
I would definitely recommend him to everyone!!! My son went to a different neurologist and she never knew what caused his problem. Dr. Taraman looked at him for 5 minutes and pined pointed what was wrong and how to help him. I wish we had seen him earlier. He is unbelievable. We had some questions later and he called us right back and talked to us for over 20 minutes on the phone. He definitely cares about his patients.

We have been seeing Dr. Taraman for a few years now after having gone through 2 other neurologists. He took the time to look at ALL of her records, procedures and history before we even saw him so he knew exactly what was going on which is hard to come by in doctors these days. He even did his own research on her behalf to come up with rehab and physical therapy options for us. He has a great bedside manor that makes it easy for kids to open up with him. He spends as much time as you need.
