Rare is it the case you walk out of a consultation feeling a sense of control and trust in the process you’re apart of. This is one of, if not the only instance, I have had that feeling. Dr Taggart took the time to listen, really listen and made a concerted effort to ensure the medical language and results of my consultation were translated into language which was understandable and comprehensible. A thorough experience.

Dr Taggart is a wonderful Doctor. He listens to what you have to say and very humbly gives his advice. I was suffering with a chronic and annoying cough since mid December. I actually had bronchitis but was on medicine from my GP. However, after I recovered I was left with a loud, disturbing cough. By the time I saw Dr Taggart it was towards the end of March. He suggested that I drink ice water and a few exercises. I drank ice water throughout the day - even though I usually drink hot coffees - and did the exercise of breathing in fully - and tapping below my neck and using my vocal chords - whilst exhaling. Within 5 days I stopped coughing and I don’t have to announce that my cough is not a Covid cough whenever I am amongst people. Many many thanks to do Taggart for all his advice. He is a wonderful Doctor

Dr Taggart was able to identify the cause of my persistent cough straightaway and recommend techniques - mechanical, mindset and, occasionally, medication - for dealing with it. I am confident these will work as his explanations as to why I have been coughing so much recently made complete sense. Dr Taggart was so kind, in addition to his obvious great knowledge and experience.

Dr Simon C O Taggart is a very warm, understanding and trustworthy professional. He has always without delay assessed my medical scenario and even with tests, follows up with you almost immediately. This in itself lessens the anxiety medical problems throw at us. I would never hesitate in recommending Dr Taggart . He is thorough, understanding, easy to talk too and listens carefully before fully assessing the situation.
