DR. TA is arrogant and don't listen, tells me I'm old and overweight. I gave him too many chances, in the long run, my medical problems were never answered.

Dr. Ta is a great doctor. He listens to my concerns, and asks me additional questions to make sure he gets the overall picture. It's just that he is so busy, it's hard to get an appointment soon enough, but he is one of the best doctor II've had!

Not only did he drop us as patients, he got angry if you inquired or questioned his diagnosis. Per new Dr. under\over medicated and poor follow up. Staff made several mistakes with insurance and referrals and no record of 2.5 years of prescripts filled.

Dr. Ta is ALWAYS awesome!! He listens to my concerns and then gives me the proper treatment. He is extremely busy so sometimes getting an appointment is sometimes difficult...but he is WELL WORTH THE WAIT.

I had a bad cold and couldn't breath. I called around 10:45 to have an appointment for the next day. The nurse just heard to my voice and the way I was coughing, and got me in les than 40 minutes. The doctor took car of me very well. Thank you.

Dr. Ta has been our family physician for the past 10 years; he sees both of my parents along with our kids. He takes his time to explain the medical issues, and you can see that he gives a lot of effort to give an accurate diagnosis. He has been very caring to us even during times when we did not have insurance. It was because of Dr. Ta that I was able to have a neck mass (thyroid cancer) diagnosed early enough to be removed without further complications. It was picked up during a routine physical exam, and I did not even know it was there. I have recommended him to both family and friends.

Horrible doctor & hospital! show details Horrible doctor & hospital!
by Jacque Shepherd Pierro on Mar 10th, 2014

My Father who was terminally ill and a patient of Dr. Viet D. Ta, at his office at Foothill Primary Care office, suffered greatly in the last day of his life due to the negligence of Dr. Ta. My father was under Dr. Ta's care at San Antonio Community Hospital when my father had to be admitted with complications from his disease. On the last night and day of my father's life Dr. Ta was on call for my father's case. When Dad started having problems from his disease Dr. Ta was paged by the hospital staff at least 8 times over a 7 hour window and he did NOT respond to ANY of the pages. My father was in full anxiety attacks and having difficulty breathing. Dad had many conversations with Dr. Ta in his Foothill Primary Care Office, as well as, during his last days while admitted to San Antonio Community Hospital about his concerns; how his last days and hours would be, how he might suffer, and what his wishes were for those final hours to spare him of the pain & suffering that he may endure. My father had filled out all the paper work and filed them with the hospital to have morphine administered for comfort care. My father directly discussed this, again, with Dr. Ta and my brother the day before he died because he was having so many complications that the morphine was almost administered then. My sister and I were flying into California to be with him and he wanted to wait until we got there, so it was not administered. Over the last day and night of my father's life he became progressively worse and he struggled greatly. When it came time for my dad's wishes to be put into place so he would not suffer, Dr. Ta could not be contacted because he didn't respond to ANY of the pages that the hospital staff had placed to him. Not only did my father suffer greatly due to this negligence, my sister, brother and I were denied any consultation if it was time to administer the morphine that my dad wanted. The final hours of my father's life were filled with anxiety, pain, suffering and fear. To top it all off there was the uncaring, heartless hospital staff who have left my sister, brother and I devastated! It's not hospital policy to contact another doctor if the one on call doesn't respond. We watched our father thrash around his hospital bed gasping for air while 10-15 nurses stood around and threatened him that they would tie down his arms if he didn't stop . When my siblings and I demanded that we wanted another doctor, and for something to be done to sedate our father, hospital staff replied by calling security on us. Our father died a horrible death, not only from the complications of his disease, but from an uncaring and negligent hospital staff and that definitely includes Dr. Viet Ta. I can definitely say that my entire family would NOT recommend Dr. Viet Ta or San Antonio Community Hospital for anyone!

I felt like I was being rushed out since it was after 5 pm. The three things that were supposed to be handled by the dr, still haven't been addressed, even after I made a follow up phone call a week later.

Dr. Ta has always been a wonderful doctor. I have been seeing him since 2006 and he has always been very helpful and caring. He goes above and beyond for his patients to see that they get the best care possible. I have and will continue to recommend him.

My prescription was messed up it took 3 days to get corrected and it was the worst experience I've ever had in his office. The receptionist didn't seem to care and they have poor customer service. I have switched primary care doctors!

Dr.Ta and his assistant are absolutely wonderful! I've gotten my physical and labs there every year, they stay on top of my health to make sure I even get my mammogram and PAP smear, due to my family history and risk factors. I don't see myself trusting anyone else with my health.

I made a Big mistake selecting this Dr Ta as my PCP He tried to impress me on my first visit , but I could see greed written all over his face. He asked me to come for a Physical in the next few days, when I went He was not there but a young Vietnamese Female Dr , her name was Dr Quan she was a relate or a friend from the same country. She was a Pediatrician . I may be a Senior Citizen but I am not senile to let a kids Dr treat me. This is not all, there is lots more !!!If you care for your life and health keep awy from Dr TaThank you

The only thing that I feel that the Dr is lacking is patience, He doesnt really listen to what a patient has to say. Your trying to explain to him what is wrong and it seems like his foot is already out the door!!! We pay a fee just to see him, can I at least get my monies worth? I dont think a Dr can make you feel at ease if hes standing the whole time that your in the examing room, have a seat and at least "pretend" that your interested in knowing what is going on with your patients that chooses to see you over hundreds of other physicians......
