It’s not a fancy doctor’s office. In a way that’s good I guess cause I want proper care and treatment and don’t want to end up paying huge fees to cover design costs. The front desk administrators were pleasant and communicative.I was greeted by an young intern who was friendly and immediately put me at ease. Dr. Tafler was great- straight to the matter ( of course, he has other patients ) but I never felt rushed or that he didn’t want to be there. He seemed very experienced and not into frills- which is fine with me. He was friendly.

Very disappointed with Dr. Taflers performance. I went in for blood test results and he misread the chart. When I came back a month later for a new test and we discovered his mistake he refused to acknowledge it at alland blamed me. Also office is constantly overbooked and wait times range between 1 and 2 hours.

The review is about front desk - told me I have to pay couple thousands of dollars deductible before seeing the doctor. After leaving the office, I called my insurance and all I had to pay was regular co-pay. Very unprofessional.

I've been going to Dr.Tafler since I was 11 and even if I haven't seen for a few years he still remembers me and asks about the family. The staff are curteous and efficient and I'm never in a bad moodwhen I leave. Dr Tafler makes sure he tells you what he's going to do and goes over whatever results there are with you. He always puts me at ease and I love that because I can worry with the best of them.

Highly recommend Dr. Tafler, he is a brilliant doctor with a great personality. Easy to talk to, he listens carefully to all my pain problems and addresses them right away. His both medical assistants are very nice and caring, knowledgeableladies. Overall had a great experience. The only one issue is a longer wait time, but it's worth it.

Everyone in that office are aware of my flaws. No matter what they still try to work with me. With Dr. Teflar it's always a pleasure. Always making it his duty to involve his staff. I got exactly what I camefor and more. One thing I can say it's worth the wait because they take their time on each patient. I'm very thankful that he is my Doctor and I'm glad he has help in the office. I must say that office make me want to learn their language just so I can join in. On the other hand, I can't wait to see them in the future.

The appointment never seems to go through on Zocdoc, however the office does take walk ins. If you can, call when you make the appointment to confirm. The secretaries are efficient and helpful. The nurses are kind and the doctor isempathetic. The wait time is short. I recommend this doctor.

Dr. Tafler and his staff were extremely professional during my visit. He was very kind and welcoming when I first arrived, which made me feel comfortable in his office. His care was very thorough, and he did a full examination andwork up on me. Dr. Tafler made me feel as though I was not just another patient, his hospitality was warm and friendly. I am very happy to have met him, and it is wonderful to know that I can see him for my skin conditions, arthritis, back pain, and most importantly as my new primary care provider. God bless this doctor!

PROS: Staff and PAs were very warm - genuinely courteous and caring. Ease of appointment through ZocDoc. CONS: A bit of a dismissive affect. Made an urgent appointment here as the facility is closer to my work than to my PCPand I had a relatively short window to get back to work. The visit did not leave me feeling confident in the care I was receiving, so I took the remainder of the day off of work to see my PCP.
