I really liked Tara. My appointment was very early in the morning and she was ready for her day with a smile and a kind personality. She listened intently, was helpful with information and he's of all, personablelike we were having a cup of coffee together. That said, her professionalism and knowledge was superb! I'm so thankful to have connected with her.

Tara is an incredible provider!! I avoided going to the Dr for over 10 years after my previous Dr moved Dr J. Was amazing and I feared I would never find anyone like her. I finally broke down as I had a medical concern that I couldn't ignore any longer..that's when I met Dr Pfaff!! Dr Pfaff is just as amazing as Dr J..very personable, takes her time talking to me about my medical concerns and most importantly listens and shows compassion!! Even through the pandemic when I am sure she was overwhelmed with patients questions and concerns she always found the time to stay in touch and follow up!! Thank you Dr Pfaff!! I appreciate all you do for me!!

Everyone in the office was friendly and very responsive. Tara is very good at listening to my concerns and giving me her feedback. I appreciate her understanding and compassion. The in house phlebotomist that day was excellent as well! Nothing bad to say about this place.

Provider Pfaff was Wonderful it was my first visit she was very attentive nice and I felt like she really cares about her patients. Only complaint was it seemed rather unorganized the front staff gathering our insurance and information we had several phones calls from different staff asking same questions or giving us wrong information about our insurance. However upon arrival everyone was always nice overall a great experience.

Tara had solutions for an old injury that I didn't think could be helped. She prescribed a medication that was immediately effective and ordered physical therapy. I was very pleased with the way that she understood my symptoms and diagnosed them exactly.

This was my first visit to Tara and I moved from out of the country. There was so much information to cover but she was abundantly patient. I don't have history with her but am very pleased with what I've seen so far.

I always get great service there. I never have to wait for my appointment, I get in as soon as I arrive there. It is a good place to go to see a doctor and get the service that you need. The office is always very clean and fresh smelling too. The staff is doing a great job.
