I have recommended both family members and friends to my primary care physician. Most now see this physician.

Dr. Taeger is fantastic! I've never felt like "just another patient." He has never dismissed any symptoms I've claimed as unimportant or imagined. He understands that I know my body, and takes my issues seriously. I bring my daughter to Dr. Taeger, and my father drives 30-40 minutes just to see him.

fantastic doctor..I live about 25 minutes away and there are probably 100 doctors I could see within 10 minutes from me but wouldn't think of going to any one else

Dr. T is the cats pajamas. Very easy to get along with and explains everything in detail without making it complicated. I trust him very much and would recommend him.

Dr. Taeger has been my primary care doctor for over 10 years. I followed him from Burlington.

Vincent Taeger is a brilliant man of medical genius. He is also devastatingly handsome. Some might say marvelously debonaire. A real triple threat.

Dr. Taeger is an excellent physician. We like him a lot and make the hour drive for his services.

In the past, I've struggled to find a doctor to diagnose and treat my mental health issues without treating me like a drug seeker. Dr. Taeger has always made my concerns feel valid, and has worked with me to create an appropriate treatment plan. Dr. Taeger is not only knowledgeable about all aspects of my health, he has taken the time to make sure I understand anything I might have questions about. He is an excellent, trustworthy provider for me and my daughter.

Dr. Taeger takes time with his patients and respects their questions and concerns. He is an excellent physician!

Dr Taeger is the first doctor I've worked with in years where I feel like he's not in a hurry to get to the next patient or make a quick diagnosis. He is concerned about my long term health and well being and makes sure I'm comfortable with how we get there.

Ive been prescribed opioids for years for a disorder (The Mayo Clinic recently published a document noting that this treatment is idea for those who don't respond to other medications, giving it's full endorsement). Unfortunately, the current opioid scare has him so rattled that he will not continue to prescribe these. This may be an industry-wide fear, but I feel it is overblown.

I appreciated the explanations provided by Dr. Taeger.
April 23, 2018
I am a new patient as well as new to the area so I had no previous information with which to choose a provider. One of my daughters told me she had heard lots of good things about him. Also, during my visit, I learned Dr. Taeger previously practiced in Burlington and has had patients "follow" him to North Liberty. This is a testament to his patient care.

I have been with Dr. Taeger now for over 2 years, and I continue to go there because he and his staff are of the most professional, and really understand my medical issues, and needs. I would recommend this provider to others.

Coming Home to Mercy

Harold "Red" Drew, 59, had a swollen lymph node on his neck in June 2016. Two rounds of antibiotics later, it was still there and more had popped up. When his dentist raised concerns, Red decided it was time to switch physicians. Read more on page 12.
