Rude and wants to over treat and charge.

If you have minor issues like hemorrhoids, do yourself a favor and find another Doctor. He will not examine you unless you have a Colonoscopy first and even then he will not treat hemorrhoids during that colonoscopy as he requires yet another appointment. All this adds up to excessive billing and most insurance companies WILL NOT pay for a Colonoscopy until after the age of 50. More importantly this Doctor is rude and arrogant. He used scare tactics on me saying I was wrong to think hemorrhoids when it is better to think Cancer. All this without even examining me. Anyway, I went to another GI Doctor the next day, and that Doctor performed a sigmoidoscopy right there in his office and treated what was a minor internal hemorrhoid. Dr. Talia represents everything that is wrong with our Healthcare system. Again, unless you have serious symptoms, do not fall for his "multiple appointment" mindset that he clearly uses to over charge you.

My husband I both love Dr. Talia. He always brings you into his office before and after his examination to explain your situation and why he is doing the chosen treatment. Yes, he is a bit of a curmudgeon, but that's his personality. We have always found him to be nothing but warm and caring to us. I hate his colonoscopy prep (GoLightly) but he truly believes it is the better prep. I will miss him when he retires.

Was nice enough to me but he was abrupt and rude to others around him which seemed very unprofessional and makes me uneasy about what he says about me when not in front of my face.
