It's always a pleasure to see Dr. Tafeen. He is very thorough in his explanations and also let's me know how much I should expect to pay. He also helps if the co-pay is more than expected.

Have been a patient at this facility for a # of years.. Never a problem . Always totally satisfied
April 16, 2022
The care provider in this case, Dr. Tafeen, is perhaps the medical professional I most respect of all those I have encountered over the last 30 years. I base this primarily on the open way he has always provided his medical decision-making process to me, the care with which he scans my skin during every visit, his memory of past care he has provided to me, his encyclopedic knowledge of dermatology, and the friendly way he interacts with both his employees and his patients. He is an amazing doctor, and I would recommend him (as I already have) to anyone.

November 13, 2021
The doctor told me my choices and answered all my questions so I could make an informed decision. He gave me the pro and con of each course of action. We totally agreed in the end as to the best direction for me
November 13, 2021
Dr. Tafeen is by far the best dr I've EVER had and I've been seeing him for about 35 years. He is brilliant and very patient centered. He always provided a copy of his handwritten notes, which was wonderful because I could refer back to them. I'm not sure why he did not do that this past visit, but I was disappointed. He has always encouraged me to talk with him about different dermatology concerns and was very conscientious about handling those In an efficient and effective manner. He does not want to waste his time Or his patients' time by making multiple visits If It could be done In one visit Ir even by phone. I always appreciated that about him. I will say that the last visit I had since he joined Cone felt a little different and I hope It Is not due to the new agreement. It took a long time to get the appointment and I've never had that issue before. I've had similar experiences where providers joined organizations and they suddenly became unavailable for appointments and such. I highly recommend him to anyone who needs dermatological treatment.

Dr. Tafeen is a skilled practitioner with excellent communication skills. I always feel I am receiving the best possible advice and treatment when under his care. As an added bonus he has a great sense of humor and never fails to make me laugh during what would otherwise be a mundane consultation.
October 21, 2021
I have been cared for by Dr.Tafeen for many years. He has helped me fight my battle with skin cancer thru his knowledgable care. He continues studying new information regarding his profession. He is kind and compassionate while dealing with patients that are nervous and stressed about having skin surgery. My father went to him first as a patient and referred me. I referred my sister, my uncle, and my cousin. I have also referred friends and acquaintances that are looking for the best Dermatologist. This is an office that cares from the front door to the exam room to the surgery suite to the check out.

Dr. Tafeen is a very dedicated and knowledgeable provider and always takes the time to discuss the issues and potential treatments or solutions. A 5 star provider indeed.
October 16, 2021
I am 71 years old and Dr.Tafeen is far-and-away the best doctor who has cared for me in my life. His medical expertise is clear but his "bedside manner" is a 15 on a scale of 1-10! I have never said this before but I really look forward to my office visits with Dr. Tafeen. I leave the office with a smile on my face and confident I have received the best care available!!
