She is smart, professional, and easy to talk to. She discussed multiple options and helped me decide on the spot. Tobe fair, I was late to my appt because of finding where to park/finding the office, so the wait time may typically be a lot less. Highly recommend.

Dr. Tarantino is very kind and easy-going, and makes an awkward visit and exam not so bad. She took the timeto talk with me pre/post examination. I highly recommend her!

Amazing Doctor! She talks to you in her office first which makes you feel much more comfortable than being in the exam room. She really cares about her patients and it shows. I am always very nervous in doctor appointments butshe made me feel like I was important and really listened to everything I had to say. Did I wait a little bit... Yes but it was way worth it. I would have waited hours if I had to. You won't be disappointed seeing her. Her office staff was very nice and her assistant was great. I wouldn't hesitate to make another appointment with her. I found her by chance on zoc doc and the drive was long but again worth it! I drove an hour and a half to see her and honestly I would drive even further if I had to. I am grateful I found her. There is nothing more important than a doctor that cares and helps you with your problems. Fixed first visit. Can't ask for more than that!
