I came in with an unknown -a very sore sore. I was worried what it was. The doctor explained (in English) what it was, what he'd done, had his nurses find me a pharmacist for the antibiotics and said I should be fine.

Dr. Tahery himself was great - very professional and knowledgeable. He made me feel comfortable and cared for. His staff however is a whole different story. The nurses that attended to me were extremely unprofessional - one asked me for thepurpose of my visit in front of other patients, which flustered me. Continuously, I had to get some blood work done and am extremely afraid of needles. This nurse didn't even bother to tell me what she was doing, nor give me any warning when she stuck the needle in. She also ended up missing the vein, was not apologetic at all, and had to draw from my other arm. She then told me that it was my fault that she missed because I didn't drink any water this morning and must be dehydrated, making her job more difficult. She probably would have done better if she wasn't talking to her friend about their personal lives the entire time and paid attention to what she was doing to my arm... it's one thing if you're taking a throat culture, another thing to be drawing blood and not caring at all. Overall, Dr. Tahery was good, but his staff would get a 0 if I could give that to them.

Dr. Tahery was really excellent. He really took his time to discuss my concerns and my treatment plan. He made me feel extremely comfortable. The wait was about 45 min, but I have definitely waited loger at other gyn appointments. Iappreciated that once you were back in the room and undressed the wait for Dr. Tahery to come in was not long at all. Additionally, after leaving the room, I realized I had an additional question. Dr. Tahery had no problem taking a minute to talk to me privately in the hallway again. Very excellent caregiver! Office staff was very friendly as well.

As always, Dr. Tahiry took very meticulous and patient care during my visit. There was a scheduling mishap, and even though he had to immediately leave for surgery, he still saw me. During my visit I was surprised that even withthe circumstances he was still very patient and not rushed whatsoever. It was very appreciated.

I went due extra favorable reviews and convenient location. While I won't passionately argue against Dr. Tahery, I won't go again. Can't say that stuff was either welcoming or knowledgeable. Equipment and office is not the top tier, nor appealedas in-line with tech innovation. Wait time was considerable, and office was overbooked. I was asked to sign mal-practice waiver, that stated that I will refrain from any claims, if unnecessary or wrongful procedure will be performed... I was not informed about charges that will not be covered by insurance before the appointment, and appointment resulted in way more then co-pay contribution. Oh, yeah, they ask to sign a waiver for that too.

I gotta say, Dr. T is the bomb! I had a good experience. He was so nice, concerned, knowledgeable, and efficient. I was dreading this appointment since I made it last week, mostly due to having never had a male GYNbefore, but also because I had never had the opportunity to use my insurance through work, so I wasn't sure how that was going to work out. Male or Female aside, find an doctor who suits you! I was pretty apprehensive before my appointment, but Dr. Tahery put me right at ease from the get go. He talked through everything he was doing and all recommendations he had, but without the "pressure" I sometimes feel from doctors. Great bedside manners, comfortable environment...he even brought in a female nurse during the exam. It wasn't necessary, but absolutely appreciated. I will for sure come back to his office on any future visits.

Dr. Tahery was my first male OBGYN, and I was quite nervous about it. However, he was kind and relaxed and I felt very comfortable. He didn't seem to be in a rush, and we went over my gynecological history thoroughly.And they were super quick getting me in - the least amount of waiting I've EVER had in 20 years of GYN visits. HOWEVER: If you are looking to use him as a primary doctor, you may want to look elsewhere. He will not act as your GP. A little disappointing for a young woman, as that means you need an extra appointment and insurance payment to discuss/get prescriptions for anything other than gynecological issues. I have had experiences in the past where my GYN has gone over (very basic) other issues with me, as they know seeing both a GYN and a GP can be somewhat redundant for a young woman in good health. If you don't have anything but gyn issues or need a basic pap smear, I would recommend him.

I only found out that the doctor would have to reschedule my appointment after I was already in the treatment room. I took several hours off work and was still expected to pay the copayment, even though I received no treatment.I verbally told the staff at my last appointment that I would be making an appointment for an IUD. I also specified it in writing when I made the appointment. Somehow, they were still unaware that that was the reason for the appointment. I wouldn't be so upset if I did not still have to pay, as it was a mistake on their part, not mine. I'm not sure why they ask what the appointment is for on the appointment website if they do not read it. As a patient, I expect them to read the answers I have given them (regarding appointment information) to their own questions. I'm not sure what I did wrong. I will say that dr. Tahery is a fine doctor, but I think this was a failure on the part of his staff and/or the organization of the office's appointment/patient information system.

Dr Tahery's office was very nice and professional. He didn't keep me waiting too long in the exam room, which is a pet peeve of mine - He was communicative, and addressed most of my concerns. I'd say the only pointshe lost are for being a bit in a hurry -- or at least seeming that way. But truly, I think he did everything he was supposed to, and suggested treatment that would help me. A good choice as a doctor, and a very professional and friendly staff.

I had a very good first appointment with Dr. Tahery. I had a 9am apt and was the only one in the waiting area and seen pretty immediately (when I left, there were more waiting so I can't speak to laterappts.) It was my first time seeing a male OB-gyn so I was a little uncomfortable with the idea but was put completely at ease with his professionalism and a nurse in the examining room. He answered my questions and seemed very knowledgeable. He performed a quick ultrasound to check something out on my ovaries, which I was charged for. I was made aware of the charge for that procedure before I entered the room so it was not unexpected. The rest of the visit was free of co-pay as it was a well visit. Clean, professional facility. I plan to come back.
