Each consultation has always been relaxed, informative and professional. Everything was explained to me in detail and I felt totally at ease and comfortable with my treatment plan.

It takes more than knowing one’s specialism to be an excellent Consultant. And that is how I describe and and recommend Dr Taggart. Dr Taggart’s interpersonal style is remarkable. He possesses great compassion, empathy and active listening skills. All of which are most welcome to an anxious patient. For reasons related to COVID, my consultation was via Zoom. The benefit of this was that neither Dr Taggart nor myself needed to wear a face covering and so there was no barrier non-verbal communication. And as I have mentioned above, the soft skills of Consultancy are very important.

A wonderful Doctor, one of the best I have ever dealt with. He truly goes the extra mile and it's obvious he cares very much about his patients. His assistance in getting me treatment has been invaluable. I can't thank him enough. A Doctor to trust and admire. He has changed my life. What a guy!!!

My name is John and on the 3rd of February I felt dreadful, I had been ill for 3 weeks with extreme Exhaustion, and could hardly walk 20 meters. After having many blood tests, antibiotics and steroids as prescribed by my GP, it was suggested I was referred to a Respiratory Consultant. I located Dr Taggart quite by accident on the internet and booked to see him the following Day, in person I thought. However the Spire phoned and advised the appointment would be Virtual by Zoom, I have to admit I had reservations .....how wrong I was, Dr Taggart contacted me at the arranged time and the consultation was amazing ... the care, knowledge and advise has helped me enormously, I was sent for at CT scan as a precaution to eliminate any underlying problems and in my case ,put my mind at rest. Within hours I felt so much better and I have continued with the exercises and advise given, and now hope I continue to improve. Thank you Dr Taggart, I could not recommend more!

I have been under Dr. Simon Taggart's care for 10 years now, indeed I owe my life to him as he was the only Doctor to correctly diagnose my lung condition in 2011 and prescribe the treatment and medicine I actually needed. Over the years Dr. Taggart has guided me through my respiratory and lung issues. Recently on the 3rd January 2021 I tested positive for Covid 19 and he has been there advising and supporting me every step of the way, which I believe takes a special person to do that. He is caring and knowledgable Doctor whom I cannot find the words to praise enough. God Bless you Dr. Simon Taggart.
