This man has terrible bedside manner. He acts inconvenienced by any questions you may have. Does not check or intentionally prescribed medicines that have a strong counteraction, which resulted in excruciating pain and hospital stay because my organs were shutting down. If I had not been able to get to the hospital quickly, I would not be alive. He was asked directly if they were safe to take together. He said to take them both. Thinking that a doctor would surely know if it was safe to do, I followed his medical advice. BIG MISTAKE. If you value your life or your loved ones, you will seek out a different doctor.
I was diagnosed with Crohn's disease as a teenager. I was treated by a gastroenterologist in Tyler for several years. For two years I was having severe symptoms. I moved to Athens and began seeing Dr. Takata. He reviewed all my records and found a problem that had been ignored or dismissed for over a year. He treated me with antibiotics, Infliximab and now Humira. My symptoms have COMPLETELY RESOLVED! I feel like I have a new lease on life. I will be forever grateful to Dr. Takata and his expert care.
My husband nearly died twice under dr takata care. Now under the care of a concerned and knowledgeable GI in Tyler. My husband has to have his esophagus re banded every 3 weeks for preventing more bleeds due to excessive damage done to his esophagus under dr takata care. Sad scary and stay away if you want to live
