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.

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.

the best Dr. I have ever had!
January 29, 2018
I've seen a lot of dr's in my life. some have been good and a few have been terrible. Vince has taken care of medical problems over the phone after hours And on weekends when needing rescue medication. it took me about 30 minutes to resolve with the pharmacist when I had run out of meds and had no refills on file. I couldn't be more grateful.
January 22, 2018
I changed providers a year or so ago. I couldn't be happier with my decision to change. I feel as though Dr. Taeger is knowledgeable and stays abreast of modern medicine literature. I have a clearly defined direction to take to improve my health.

The best care I have gotten since moving to this area!

Dr. Taeger is the best! He speaks on our level of medical understanding, which is extensive, and leaves room only after we have all our questions answered! He never makes us feel he is too rushed to spend quality time with our needs.

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.
