Dr. Tarantino was so amazing. I booked on doc zoc this morning for a 3:00PM appointment. I was told to come in about 15-20 minutes early to fill out paperwork as I was a new patient and so I did. Iwas in an exam room by 3:10. I had to do xrays and the doctor had everything I needed to examine, xray, and to fix up my foot. Dr. Tarantino was respectful, polite, gave me a treatment strategy, and did a thorough examination of both feet, ankles and toes and led me on the path to recovery. He was patient and answered all my questions. He also called my pharmacy for the de-inflammatory so I don't have the normal 1 hour wait for the presecription, I go back in two weeks to see if the treatment is working,...I hope so.

Doctor Tarantino is really amicable & professional. He answers all my questions with easy to comprehend language & put you at ease for the treatment by giving an understandable explanation. The waiting room smelled like body odor & was somewhatrank but it may have an individual next to me as it was not as bad when I moved my seat.
