Love him!UofU Patient June 01, 2014
We love Dr. Tauskey. He is an excellent physician and one of the most caring doctors I have ever been too. He explained my medical condition to me in easy to understand terms. He took lots of time to explain and answer my questions. I always feel like Dr Tauskey cares about the whole patient not just about your medical problem. Dr Tauskey saved my husbands eyesight a year ago when he operated on him for a pituitary tumor and he was wonderful to our family during a very stressful time. We have complete confidence in Dr. Tauskey:)UofU Patient May 18, 2014
I feel very priveleged to be in Dr. Tausskys care.UofU Patient April 22, 2014
Dr. Taussky was wonderful!!! He demonstrated a sincere interest in me and what I am experiencing. He is kind, concerned, and VERY knowledgable. I've sought help for the same condition over the past 6 years. I can't even count how many doctors I've seen. The majority were disinterested and dismissive. I have full confidence in Dr. Taussky. I feel so blessed to have found him! Thank you Dr. Taussky!UofU Patient February 08, 2014
Dr. Taussky was very professional. He explained my malformation to me and listened to the explanation I had gotten from a previous physician I had seen. He was helpful in pinpointing why I was having the problem I was and confident that I would be okay in the future. He gave me detailed instructions on weaning off my medication and ensured if I had any problems or questions to call him. I truly appreciated him and after waiting for answers for two months I am thankful I went to see him cause I finally got the answers I needed.UofU Patient November 11, 2013

The whole staff was also very helpful in other issues we had. We needed a handicapped parking placard and also needed a referral for a primary care physician in Bountiful. Your staff (Sage?) was extremely helpful in providing both.UofU Patient December 03, 2012
