Dr. Taras is fantastic! He is knowledgeable, friendly, and truly cares about his patients. He and his nurse and staff are always welcoming, and I know that I am in good hands every time I am in the office. He is always available for concerns and questions, and is quick to respond whenever I need anything. Somehow, even when he is unavailable, he still makes time for his patients. It’s like visiting friends whenever I go, and I am super blessed by each person on staff. The customer service and expertise are 10/10 at this practice. I am so thankful for a doctor that cares as much as he does. He is the best!

Dr. Taras is the most Amazing doctor I have ever met. He really shows compassion towards his patients.
He gives you 100% of his attention, something I have never experienced with any other doctor.
His staff is just as caring. From the moment I called to make an appointment Kris was personable and kind, she made me feel super comfortable as I was a nervous wreck. The entire office has a true passion for what they do and you can feel it throughout your entire experience with them.

The Drs. Taras

I've been going to the Drs. Taras for 23 years. Dr. Ed was a great doctor, but his bedside manner left something to be desired, but i could ask his office ANYTHING they are terrific...I have seen Dr. Ian just for the last 2 or 3 annual checkups. He has taken time and answered all my questions, he is very knowlegable (like his dad), but his bedside is WAY better. I recommend both doctors highly.

Never had a problem...

I have gone to Dr. Taras's office on a few different occasions and he has always been very nice to me. His staff is nice as well. He was referred to me from my sister. She spoke highly of him and I have never felt like I made a bad decision using Dr. Taras for my Gynecologist. I think he's great! He helped me with my PMS problem and he has been a very caring doctor. I will continue to go to him for my checkups.

Would not recommend

I came to Dr. Taras via wonderful reviews as he has just asked his patients to write on his behalf for these websites.

My initial visit was on time and unrushed. I had the sense from his office staff and from him that they truly cared about my well being. I came to find out, thankfully sooner than later, that I was wrong.

Dr. Taras ran unnecessary test and my out of pocket expenses were getting very high. When I inquired, the response from the office was ?because he ordered the tests?. No matter what doctor you put your care into the hands of, you should be able to ask whatever questions you want and have the doctor, himself, get back to you. Not his receptionist or via email!

Dr. Taras has a very unprofessional business with no regard for anyone?s schedule or time except his own. He holds himself up on a pedestal, and if he came down off his perch, he may infact be an okay doctor.

Wonderfully Caring Doctor

Dr. Taras is an amazing gynecologist. You are never rushed and he always has time to answer just one more question. He is always thorough and professional yet is also warm and caring. He's patient and understanding and never judgmental. If you ever face a serious health issue, he's the one you'd want in your corner. He has easily earned my highest recommendation.

You are a Rare Jewel!

I had the great pleasure of working with Dr.Taras, so I got to know him behind the scenes . I can honestly say that I saw him go the extra mile for his patients, time and time again. His kindness and generousity is unsurpassed!!! He has been a true blessing in my life. Thank You Dr. Taras for being "" You""

Really, Seriously....The BEST Doctor!

My first meeting with Dr. Taras was under some emergency circumstances. Dr. Taras and his whole staff were amazing and brought me through a very difficult time. Not only did they support and take care of me during this situation, but also my husband. Dr. Taras made sure that he understood everything that was going on with me and was always there with solutions.

After that emergency, Dr. Taras, with his staff, helped me get over my fear of regular Doctor visits. Dr. Taras is a gentle Doctor who puts you at ease the moment you meet him. He is up to date on the latest information and procedures. I love that he is also a surgeon! The office staff/nurse are just as wonderful. How often do you find a good Doctor, with a wonderful staff as well. It is rare.

I first learned about Dr. Taras from a friend who raved about him. And I have recommended him myself. In fact he also took care of my mother through a health problem. Give him a will want him for your own Doctor after that!

Caring, Genuine & Magnificent Doctor

I have been a patient of Dr. Taras for over 10 years. He is straight forward, caring and dedicated to his patients. There is no other doctor in this field that I trust and respect more than Dr. Taras!

Dr. Taras is the BEST!

I, unfortunately, am no longer able to be a patient of Dr. Taras because I now live in Florida, but was his patient for about 5 years and I have never had a better ob/gyn experience!! He delivered my daughter and I always felt confident and comfortable in his care. I have not been able to find a comparable doctor since moving away from California and miss him terribly! I even somtimes still email him questions and even though I'm no longer his patient, he responds quickly and with compassion. Miss you Dr. Taras!!

Best GYN ever! No OB! yay!

Dr Taras is the best GYN anywhere! He deals with women's issues only. I met Dr T when I as having serious heavy menstrual issues, fibroids, enlarged uterus. He is completely up to date on all the most recent technology and procedures. His bedside manner is consultative, weighing the pros & cons to procedures with you and your input, verses, ""you need to do this."" I became a patient when he had just announced he was no longer OB, which was a big plus for me! Love children, but what a relief that the waiting room does not look like a play pen and your appointment does not get trumped by moms delivering babies. The office staff is excellent too! The best is, the appointments are on time! Like a real business/office should be run. I have recommended several friends and colleagues.

Dr. Ian Taras is absolutely, hands-down, the best gyno I've ever had!!! He is compassionate, considerate, friendly, has an excellent bed-side manner, and makes you feel very comfortable. No matter what the subject (which could be embarrassing or uncomfortable) he always puts you at ease. He's done everything from routine office visits, delivered my youngest daughter (11 yrs ago), performed an endometrial ablation on me, and he is absolutely amazing. His staff is friendly, helpful and courteous as well. I've been seeing Dr. Taras now for about 12 or 13 years. I would recommend him to anyone. He's the best!

The best gyn ever!

Dr. Taras has been my doctor for ten years, and has delivered three of my children. I have also gone through several miscarraiges with him, and he is hands-down the most caring doctor I have ever met. In additon to caring he is also incredibly knowlegable and is extremely accessible. You can write an email to him and receive a very quick response! He really will spend a lot of time with each of his patients, and you always feel like he has plenty of time for you! The staff in his office take his lead and they are sweet and caring and knowledgable as well. The only negative I can say is that I am so sad that he no longer delivers babies!

After suffering with female issues for over 20 years-I finally found the BEST Doctor in the state of California! (possibly the world!) From my 1st visit with Dr Taras I was impressed-1st by the amount of time he spent actually talking to and listening to me- nearly an hour and 1/2-almost unheard of these days...and then by his compassion, caring and understanding of my problems. He was the 1st and only DR that I had seen (and I had seen MANY) that offered a less invasive hysterectomy- LSH-(after being told for years that I needed a total hysterectomy) and when I made the decision to finally do it- I had wished that I had found him years earlier. I was able to go home the same evening of my surgery-no overnight hospital stay. And was back to work in less than 2 weeks. In addition to that-Dr Taras has helped me thru this maze of life called menopause with his ability to think outside the ""traditional HRT"" box-and his expertise in bio identical HRT therapies. Dr Taras has made a HUGE difference in the quality of my life. I would recommend him (and have!) to any woman seeking a kind, caring, knowledgeable Doctor. I'd also like to point out that I was adamant on finding a female DR - but decided to try Dr Taras on the recommendation of a female pharmacist.....and I am thrilled that I listened to her.
Did I mention that I LOVE DR TARAS!!!! And you will too!

Fabulous Doctor

First hand experience with female problems for the past 8 years. Dr. Ian Taras has been an absolute
wonder in helping me with my issues. I had abalation therapy under his care and it worked wonders for me
for seven years. This past summer I was fortunate to be able to have a hysterectomy via laproscope under his expert hands. After one night in the hospital I returned home. My recovery was quick and I have been absolutely thrilled with the results. My incisions are almost invisible, no bigger than a centimeter, I kept my ovaries, so hormones are not an issue. I would recommend Dr. Ian Taras to anyone, including my grandmother. His expertise and fabulous compassion make anyone feel comfortable discussing even the most difficult of topics. Absolutely the BEST!

I love this place!!!!!

Dr. Taras is the most wonderful obgyn you will ever find. The staff are friendly, personal and just make you feel as if you are the most important person in the world. Dr. Taras is exactly the same as his staff. He really truly cares about his patients and takes the time to explain everything to them. I have loved him as my obgyn and I will continue to see him, no matter where I live!

Very friendly and compatible doctor.

He made me feel very comforatable to be in the dr's office (in stirrups, no less). His staff is also very helpful and friendly. I've needed prescriptions in between visits and he has phonned them into the pharmacy for me the same day. I'm just disappointed he wont be delivering babbies anymore, because I think he would be an excellent doctor to see you through your most difficult time.
