I thought that Dr. Karl Tiara was very patient, was not rushed and was professional throughout the entire visit. He also listened to my questions and thoroughly went through my medical history after transitioning from a different PCP. I am happy that I have Dr. Tiara as my PCP and he followed up quickly! Thank you.

Dr Taira my kind of doctor, thoughtful and considerate, does not just jump to standard response. Considers medication adjustment, bloodwork, referral to specialist and complete approach to your condition. Very pleased.

Dr. Taira and staff were very courteous and respectful. Dr. Taira was amazing and very thorough in his concerns and explanations. By far, the best care that I can ever recall having received from ANY medical staff ANYWHERE else. A huge shoutout and thank you to Dr Taira!

I felt better seeing the doc this time as I feel he will actually listen and not preach. After all this is my body and I am very aware of my conditions. He takes me seriously and doesn’t brush me off.

Doctor Tiara is the best doctor i have had as an adult he is friendly but firm and tells me what I need to hear. He has great skills as far as my treatment and referrals go. His nursing staff are very kind very knowledgeable and very efficient and always smiling. A kind smile goes a long way when you are not feeling well. Overall Barnes primary west is a great choice and I would recommend it to anyone looking for great care.

Dr. Taira gave great care and instructions. Dr. Taira, made sure I was comfortable and not over exerted. I was given specific instructions on how to care for myself. And also when to return. My labs were looked at. My lungs and heart were examined. We also discussed the fluids that I retained, and how they can become an issue for my health.

I loved that Dr. Taira was eager to try new things, and recommend action I could take on my own to relieve the discomfort I was in. My illness was long and complicated, and even when it took time to find the right treatment, I appreciated the immediate attempts to find relief. I felt that Dr. T listened to me when I told him a treatment wasn't working, which is important to me.

I was able to get an appointment the day after I called to schedule a physical. I arrived about ten minutes early, and was taken back, to the exam room after only 5 minutes. I have never had an appointment where the nurses, and doctor, were so prompt, with very little waiting time. My appointment was completed in about the amount of time that I was expecting to spend in the waiting room. The doctor took his time with me, and was very polite, and professional. The nurses were also very pleasant. I can't say enough good about how I was treated.

Sep 28, 2022
Scheduling is convenient and easy. The staff is nice and accommodating. I would definitely recommend Dr. Taira to my friends and family!

This was our first visit with Dr. Taira. He was extremely kind and patient with my daughter. She has special needs and can have a lot of anxiety at doctor's appointments. She really liked him so I know she won't have any fears for follow-up visits. He was knowledgeable and gave clear instructions for what her treatment plan will be. The office staff were kind and patient as well. The nurse moved us to a different exam room with a lower table when he realized she was scared of getting up on a regular exam table.
