Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

Dr. Taft is a star in my book. He partners with his patients, takes all the time needed to insure questions are asked and that the information provided is understandable and complete. He also often prints out articles for you to take home to learn more. He works well with other doctors and partnered with my orthopedic surgeon to insure the best outcome. For the first time in my life I had successful surgeries (knee replacements) without post-surgical infections. He's got a great sense of humor too, which makes visits enjoyable.

Dr. Taft is an amazingly astute infectious disease physician. I’m grateful for all that he has done for my family, relatives, friends and neighbors to date. P.S. There is a reason (with good intentions) Dr. Taft takes time to share a joke with his patients and others. “Laughter is the best medicine.”

Had been seeing Dr. Taft for a chronic infection. At first he comes across as "somewhat" knowledgable but it is overshadowed by his constant joke telling and bragging about himself. After seeing him for quite a while my infections NEVER resolved and the last visit I had with him he seemed to be very imcompetent with any recommendations. He is never available to talk to outside of an appointment. He is quick to brush off a patient and tell them to go the emergency room if they are having a problem even when he tells you to call him when you have a problem. He can tell all the jokes in the world, but as it turned out, he was the joke!!! I DO NOT recommend him or his practice.

I am so impressed with Dr. Taft , Infectious Disease Specialist. Highly specialized, knows his area of expertise, easy to talk to, caring and really is highly trained, I enjoy his openness and honesty, and personally I could not have been in better hands when he explained to me what my options were, and was oh, so caring and a great doctor who knows best what I needed to get through some pretty rough areas of infectious disease I had contracted. So caring and gentle and honest. BrotherJohn K OFS

The Winter of 2013/2014 was a very difficult time for me....I praise the day Dr. Taft walked into my hospital room....angels were behind him....he literally did save my life. His supportive, communicative and empathetic attitude gave me hope. and was so kind....his bedside manners are commendable. I so highly recommend him to anyone.
