Dr. Shaya Taghechian is the best. The office staff are very friendly and professional.
I was glad I found Dr. T. as she explained my problem and helped me to get back to good health. She was the 3rd urologist I saw and I was about to give up. She even recommended a therapist whose help made my situation improve even faster. Recommend her highly.
I have been a patient of Dr. Shaya Taghechian for several years and every visit with her has really been an actual pleasant experience. She is easy to talk to and always explains things in an easy to understand way. I love her.
I have been to other urologists for the same problem for years. I feel Dr. Taghechian has the knowledge and skill to help me finally solve my problem. She takes the time to listen and explain my options. The Wookstock location is near to Cartersville where I live and is easily accessible. The staff in the office are all very efficient and courteous. Thank you.
Have confidence in my Provider and staff to follow up, notify me of test results and needed treatment or medications
I feel like the in person follow up for scan results was unnecessary. Kind of a wasted co pay and time. I literally just had the results read to me. So that was kind of frustrating but aside from that you guys were great as always.
Thank you for removing the catheter, so sad he couldn't urinate and you had to reinstall it. Hopefully, we can find out what the problem is with his urinating. He has Progressive Supranuclar Palsy a fast acting Parkinson like illness, so not sure if this is related or just something else to deal with. Anyway thank you again! Not an easy job!
