I've been searching for a quality dermatologist in Atlanta for a couple of years now. While the city offers many options for skin care services, most are more concerned with the quick buck instead of focusing on patient care. Dr. Taliaferro was recommended by a friend and I decided to give her a try. Much to my surprise, she listened to my problems and did not rush through my visit. I was impressed with the ease of scheduling an appointment and how friendly her staff was too. My problems are bet

My experience with Dr. Taliaferro has been nothing short of sensational. I am a 36 year old woman who still suffers from hormonal acne and has moderate scarring. Thanks to Dr. Taliaferro I can now say "suffered" and "had". First, she treated my acne with a combinations of medicines, topical and some in pill form. Once my acne was under control, the best part was to come. I have had acne scarring since I was 19 years old. A series of Fraxel and micro-needling treatments - my skin looks amazing!

Experience with Dr. Taliaferro; extremely disappointing. My first visit with doc, short and sarcastically smart and so was my second. Understandably so, medications do in fact take time to work, like most things. Before I could even discuss my concerns, she interrupts me and then proceeds to tell me she doesn't have a magic wand. I was completely stunned as I don't know any doctors who do. Not only is she rude, but extremely unprofessional!! Latasha, however, is very friendly and genuine.
