Review of Dr. Taranto

He is a direct communicator, always has been the 40 years I've know him. Compassionate but firm in describing his reccomendations--its serious business to him and I am sure he sees the results of unfortunate people who do not take care of their health. See this man and do what he tells you !!! You won't regret it.
