I returned for my follow up appointment to discuss my blood work. I was very pleased with his professionalism and attention to detail! I will definitely continue to goto Dr. Tafler ! He is a great doctor and his staff is also nothing short of amazing.
Dr. Tafler is the best family doctor I have ever seen! Knowledgeable and friendly! Also his staff is very helpful and polite! Would definitely recommend!
The office and staff is fantastic. Dr. Tafler is amazing. He had 3 students who are not only excellent but also Gorgeous. The receptionist Michelle is Gorgeous as well.
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 all and blamed me. Also office is constantly overbooked and wait times range between 1 and 2 hours.
Awesome humane doctor. Easy to talk to with superb respect for his patients.
Glad to have met Dr. Tafler. Will be seeing him regularly as my primary care physician and highly recommend him to others.
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.
As always it was a pleasure to visit my doctor. He is simply the best.
Excellent experienced Doctor. Within hours I was walking again with minimal pain. Saved my holiday.
He absolutely the best doctor I've ever been 2 .....????
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 mood when 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.
I'm very satisfied with Dr.Tafler and his staff. Great doctor and courteous assistants. Highly recommend this office
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, knowledgeable ladies. Overall had a great experience. The only one issue is a longer wait time, but it's worth it.
Great Doctor! Dr Tafler is detail-oriented, friendly and knowledgeable. Overall, I had a very positive experience with Dr. Tafler’s office. Highly recommend to anyone!
wait time was a lil while but once i got there , the doctor and students in training was very attentive and informational . doctor was through with my treatment . would definitely recommend being my first time .
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 came for 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.
I enjoyed his assistances and him a lot. I definitely made the right choice choosing his office. I felt comfortable and I'm going back in a few days for a follow up.
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 is empathetic. The wait time is short. I recommend this doctor.
Office seems very unorganized
Dr. Tafler is very thorough. He makes sure everything is alright before sending you away.
very good experience.
He"s very nice !!!!!
This was by first time to Dr. Tafler. He was very kind, patient, and knowledgeable, His staff was also very helpful.
What can I say. The Doctor and his assistants are wonderful. Made me feel comfortable quickly. They make you feel like family. So far two visits and I have seen an improvement with my health situation. They know what they are doing and they take their time with you. I give this doctor and his staff, two thumbs up.
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 and work 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!
Great doctor, definatly takes his time!
The staff at this office is great. I usually get anxiety going to doctor's offices but here I feel very comfortable. Very short wait and Dr. Tafler is very patient and attentive. 5 stars all around!
Super professional!!! Very pleasant atmosphere !!! Highly recommend!!!
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 PCP and 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.
Dr.tafler is by far one of the best doctors. He takes his time with you he likes to be thorough, and he gets to the source of the problem right away , highly recommend him. To anyone
Professional as always.........A .Jacobs.....

Dr Tafler is very good doctor. He always take care of the patient. I would recommend him.
This was one of my best visit to any doctors office.
My appointment with Dr. Tafler was at 10:30am and I was escorted into the patient room at around 10:45. The staff was very nice and attentive. Dr. Tafler came to see me about 2 minutes later. He took his time to make sure I understood the procedure and made sure to keep me calm as I was fairly nervous. Overall Dr. Tafler makes a visit to the doctor a little simpler than it usually is. A++
I highly recommend Dr. Tafler. He is an excellent physician, very caring and knowledgeable! Dr. Tafler was extremely thorough and explained all treatments options to me (my previous PCP saw me for 5 min). His office is great too, the staff is very pleasant, the office is clean, and I barely had to wait. I am definitely coming to see Dr.Tafler again, it was the best experience I ever had at any doctor's office!!!
Great office, caring people. A little bit of a wait to be seen (45mins). Overall good experience.

Overall I am satisfied with the visit The wait time was over an hour but he was able to attend to me as a new patient in a timely fashion.I would recommend him to anyone.His assistant was very nice as well.
