He was very courteous and kind, but has a huge ego. When I expressed severe pain after surgery , he actually called me a Wimp. Not very professional or appreciated. I also believe he damaged a vague nerve and I have suffered terribly since my surgery three years ago. Quality of life has been compromised.
Dr. Taiganides was recommended to me by several people so I scheduled a 2nd opinion with him. Liked him immediately. He joked around just enough to put you at ease, was not pushy about surgery, had time for me. He wanted me to explain my symptoms and he listened. Did need surgery, had bad attack 2 weeks before surgery was scheduled for He added me in the next day for surgery did not act like it was a bother. Came in before my surgery joked a little but you could also feel he cared. Had no pain after surgery(gallbladder removed). I fully trust him and his skills. Did have to wait alittle at follow up appt. but I'm willing to wait for a good doctor that has time for me when he comes in and doesn't treat me like a number. I have nothing negative to say about my experience. I would recommend him to anyone. Best experience I've had with Doctors now if I can find a family Doctor that good!
I was very impressed with Dr. tag. He was clearly very knowledgeable about his field at our first visit and I knew I was in good hands. I had to have a scope done and I was scared due to 2 previous bad experiences but Dr. Tag was great. He was joking with me to put me at ease but also very nurturing. It was a much better experience than the first two times. He's got a reputation as a great surgeon, I'd refer anyone to him. :)
