What Our Patients Say

“Dr. Taravath is an excellent listener and always available to answer my questions. I never feel rushed. One of the best experiences we have had. He is very thorough and put in place an agreeable action plan.”

“Dr Loehr is truly a gem. I’ve met many doctors over the years but there are very few as wonderful as him. His demeanor is unlike any other. He treats my children like they are his own family and he’s always been loving and kind every time we have had him. He has always been very patient when listening to my concerns and very thorough when explaining things to me to make sure that I understand completely what is going on and feel confident when I leave. I honestly cannot say enough about him and how much I appreciate the doctor he chooses to be.”

“Susan Boyd is amazing and we would highly recommend her. She does a great job of explaining things and never makes you feel rushed.”
