I presented to Georgia Urology in severe pain from a kidney stone. Dr. Taghechian was able to fit me in that day to remove the kidney stone and place a stent. She was kind, great bedside manner, and was very honest with us. Hopefully I do not have to see her again under these circumstances, but if I do, then I would definitely go back to her. Thank you! Addendum (almost one month out): I still stand by what I wrote about Dr. Taghechian and the wonderful work she did. However, since then, it has been a pretty bad experience, mainly in regards to communication. There were issues with rechecking some blood tests that were in their control, and one that was out of their control (so there's grace with that one). But, in neither of these circumstances were we notified by them that there were problems. If we hadn't called them, we would have never known. I asked about my stone analysis at one of the rechecks and it wasn't back yet. They told me to call on Friday to check. Left message with appropriate people and nobody ever called me that day or any day after that. I ended up getting my stone analysis results directly from the hospital, not the medical office that actually did the procedure. At one point I did speak to the practice manager during the blood test debacle, but even she has not responded to subsequent emails or phone message. This is very unprofessional and it's frustrating. I am in the medical business, and this would not fly in my office. I debated even writing an addendum, but their lack of communication was so egregious that I couldn't not say anything. Makes me not want to do any follow-up with them, honestly, which sucks because I do like Dr. T. Again, doctors are great. Communication, very very poor.

I have been having some ongoing issues, including reoccurring UTIs. One of the doctors I saw was adamant that I needed surgery and I was getting conflicting information. Dr. Taghechian is the fourth Urologist I saw for this problem and I feel like I finally found a Urologist that was a great match for me. She is thoughtful, empathetic and patient. She gave me simple steps to take that made sense to me. We are trying physical therapy and some other things first. The staff was friendly and professional. I highly recommend Dr. Taghechian.

Dr. Taghechian was very professional, and up front at the same time. She had my best interest in mind, and did all she could to ensure my safety during surgery. She listened to my concerns and put my mind at ease. I highly recommend her.

I appreciate that Dr. Taghechian takes the time to answer my questions. All staff at Georgia Urology have been wonderful to deal with. This appointment was a follow-up to surgery and Dr. T. took time to answer all my questions!

Just like everyone else, I was asked to leave a urine sample. As I sat in the waiting room, I watched at least 8 people use the room. No one ever went in to at least wipe down the handles. I was not weighed nor was my blood pressure taken. I was asked how tall I was and what was I weighed, did I have high blood pressure or diabetes. It was a most interesting assessment before I saw the doctor.
