If you are looking for a primary care or family doctor I would highly recommend Dr. Taunk. She is also trained and does procedures that I’ve not found available with other primary care doctors Ive seen in the past. Dr. Taunk is an extremely compassionate Doctor and always taken the time to listen and to help me whenever I have gone to see her. She is extremely knowable about medicine and if the issue requires a specialist, she will refer you to one. Also important, her staff is excellent.

Simply the best! I come from a medical family,and am related to prominent,accomplished doctors. I believe i can evaluate doctors somewhat better than the average patient. I have found that Dr. Taunk,is really a great doctor. She is unusually knowledgeable. She is unusually empathetic,and very easy to talk to. She is a great communicator,and adresses all concerns accurately,compassonately,and expertly. Her staff,especially Jackie are just great also. I give her my highest recommendation.

Dr. Taunk is a great doctor. She is as sharp as a tack and always up on all the latest medical informantion. Her staff is always efficient and helpful and there is short waiting time, if any. One of her terrific office policies is that if any of her patients request an immediate emergency office visit, that patient has access as soon as you can get to her office. I lucked out finding her when we moved to Florida a few years ago. I am a consumer of the medical system and she is the best.

Continued. I took off work for this appointment and when I shared my anger and concern that I was not told about the $30 per page which they changed to $50 for both pages, Jackie claimed she was sorry but clearly did not care. I've never been treated this way at a doctors office ever. I guess $50 is more important than my business and their integrity. They wanted more money in top of my insurance paying for my checkup. Never heard of that. And I should have been told up front.

I made an appointment for a checkup and needed paperwork (2 pages) filled out for my job because I missed work due to pneumonia. Jackie that I had talked to 3 times in the last few weeks regarding my appt failed to tell me that it costs $30 a page to have the paperwork filled out. So on top of my insurance paying her for my checkup I was to pay $30 per page for my paperwork. I've had FMLA paperwork filled out by a doctor for a blood clot before and never had to pay for paperwork.

Dr. Taunk and her staff are exceptional! She is very thorough. Her staff is excellent-I had an issue with insurance and hospital testing and they made it their priority to have the matter resolved. Then called me to reassure me that everything was completely taken care of.

If you have any questions when your not at the office, she will return calls as soon as possible. She is the kindest physician I have found in many years. Dr. Taunk is caring and very thorough in her examination of you and your health needs and takes all the time you need. I highly recommend Dr. Taunk.

Dr. Taunk is very dedicated to each and every patient. I really enjoy my visits to see her as I know that she'll do her very best to understand my personal body's imperfections and do a plan of care that is bases solely on my needs and wants. Besides her terrific bedside manner, she is also a highly skilled physician / diagnostician and a genuinely caring person. She may seem shy, but she has a sense of humor too. I'd highly recommend Dr. Vijay Taunk to everyone.

I was very hesitant to visit a physician, I never felt comfortable or pleased with the treatment or care of those who I had to see because an emergency. I have been a patient of Dr Taunk going on three years, and it has been a life changing experience. She is the most compassionate and caring physician I have been with. She takes the time to listen, explain and address any concerns and she does so from the heart.

I have been with Dr. Taunk for almost one year and couldn't be happier. Upon retiring, I wanted a primary care physician in Pinellas County. She is the perfect combination of competence and caring. She is knowledgeable and has great bedside manner. I have total confidence in her.

I recently selected Dr. Taunk as my primary care doctor, I have been with her a short time but I am extremely pleased how concerned and caring she is. She makes sure all questions are answered and will make sure all proper blood work or test are performed so that we can pinpoint the cause of pain etc. I am very happy with Dr. Taunk and the friendly office staff .

I have been a patient of Dr. Taunks way back in the Erica, and Donna days. As far as i am concerned, when i was diagnosed with colorectal cancer, her refferrals to all the specialists that i saw were the reason i am a cancer survivor. She is still my Dr. And i would never go anywhere else. I love her. Staff as well. They are compassionate and caring as Dr. Taunk always has been to me. I highly reccomend her. Thank you Dr. Taunk...Nancy Martin
