Specialties

Dr. John P Tauro Jr has the following 2 specialties

  • Neurology

    A neurologist is a physician who diagnoses and treats disorders of the nervous system which is comprised of the brain, spinal cord and nerves. These doctors do not perform surgery, but refer patients to neurological surgeons when they determine that surgical intervention is necessary.
    Some of the conditions that neurologists diagnose and treat are epilepsy, aneurysms, hydrocephalus, Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis, stroke, spinal disc herniation, and spinal disease.
    In addition to using diagnostic tests like MRI, CT scans, EEG and EMG, neurologists also employ neurological testing to gauge muscle strength and movement, balance, reflexes, sensation, memory, speech, and other cognitive abilities.

  • Psychiatry

    A psychiatrist is a doctor with specific training in the diagnosis and treatment of mental illness.
    He or she can not only provide the counseling necessary to both diagnose and treat a patient, but can also prescribe medication when needed. In some cases, a psychiatrist will only provide the medication and the counseling will be provided by another healthcare specialist, like a certified counselor or psychologist.
    Like other doctors, psychiatrists employ diagnostic tools like CT scans and MRI in order to observe the structure and function of a patient's brain.
    Once a diagnosis is made, these specialists may use behavior or cognitive therapy in order to address the patient's condition, or a multitude of other types of therapy, in conjunction with or in place of medication.

Unprofessional and Uncaring Provider

My experience with this provider was terrible. To begin, Dr. Tauro never introduced himself (I was told by Dee in his office that I would be seeing Dr Tauro during my visit on the day of my appointment). The MD did not listen to my medical history and repeatedly interrupted me as I attempted to relay the nature and history of my symptoms. His neurological exam was brief and cursory at best. He refused to speak with me on the telephone or to see me in follow up after my initial visit when I called his office staff to discuss the abnormal findings on the MRIs which he had ordered. I was only allowed to talk to his office assistant (Ryan - female) who advise me that Dr. Tauro stated that my tests were "normal" despite the fact that he acknowledged he had never looked at the radiology films personally. His assessment that the 7 noted lesions in my vertebral spine were not causing or contributing in any way to my symptoms (left-sided weakness, paresthesia, pain, gait disturbances,and diziness)and were "normal" and "benign" findings was based upon a telephone call to the reading radiologist who had never met me, examined me, known by history, or was a licensed neurologist. I requested to view the films and to go over the results with Dr Tauro in person at my scheduled upcoming appointment and to discuss further options for diagnosis/testing and treatment of my symptoms but was told "not to bother" as Dr. Tauro put it "I cannot and will not do that for you". In short, this MD is unprofessional, rude, uncaring, and unwilling to collaborate with his patients in the diagnosis and treatment of their medical care. Positives: Dee was kind and helpful.
