He's just an awesome dr. He keeps it very professional, but straight to the head of the problem. I was told back in 2012 that there was nothing wrong with me, I knew I was hurting more than I should be, so me not wanting to drive very far tried a rheumy in Bowling Green, Ky I was told that there was NOTHING WRONG, with me. I just kept on working everyday till I found out I was pregnant.... Diagnosed with Takayasu's Arteritis. A very rare autoimmune disease that I was diagnosed with while 16 weeks pregnant, after giving birth to a healthy baby boy, the disease took over with my hormones causing my BP to stay stroke level to the point when my baby was 3 wks old I started stroking!!! I left from home in the back of an ambulance Aug 21, 2015 never to be the same again. I had my diagnosis beforehand & knew this may happen & sure enough it did. Dr. Troy has been my rheumy through it all then he got me started on chemo, which was the original plan from the start but ya can't take chemo prego.

Great Dr Takagishi is a wonderful doctor. He takes time to make sure you understand all of the issues involved in your care. He even calls himself with all of your lab results. He also is very empathetic and listens intently to your problems and tries his best to help

I found Dr. Takagishi to very quite narrow minded in his understanding of my issues; his approach was "by the book". He was not willing to consider any exceptions when it came to symptoms ("not fitting in the box" as I was told). Dr. Takagishi's professionalism and willingness to help left much to be desired. It felt like he had already made his diagnosis before he even walked into the room. Would not recommend him to anyone who is looking for a compassionate and caring doctor.

Dr. Takagishi is very knowledgable, patient and great bedside manner. He is respectful of your time and doesn't make you sit in waiting. He has always been on time for appointment and never rushes you while he is with you. Highly recommend.

Dr. Takagishi is very professional and knowledgeable. He is patient and thorough. I like that he calls with your lab results himself. He seems to be genuinely interested in his patients. His office staff are very pleasant, calm and seem to be happy their work. It makes for a very pleasant experience.

What a wonderful person and an excellent doctor. He listens and repeats back to you what he is hearing you say so he is sure you are getting the right treatment. You are never rushed and the phones in his office are always answered by a person...not a machine. He calls you with blood work results and always encourages you to call his office should you need anything. Excellent staff also.

Dr. Takagishi is personally involved in every aspect of patient care. He even calls with lab results and prescription information himself. He takes time and is never rushed. Very thorough and someone you can trust. I have A.S. and he has it completely under control and even filed two medical necessity appeals with my insurance company to make sure I got the medication that would WORK.
