A Tradition of Listening & Caring!

That’s not just a phrase, but a motto.  Every patient in front of me is treated like I would my wife, sister, mother or daughter.  By the way, I love all those people so that’s a good thing!  Dr. Edward Taras, my Father, started this practice in 1968 & we’ve been in the same place, ever since.  I came on board in 1996.  My Dad has since passed away in 2014 but his name will always be on the door!

Honored & Humbled with this recent feature article in VoyageLA Magazine.


You’re not a computer so why should there be only one solution?  I’ve done my research and believe in both traditional HRT (Hormone Replacement Therapy) and BioIdentical (Natural) HRT.  Most docs will give you a choice of one or the other, but if there are 31 different flavors of ice cream, why can’t there be 31 ways to do hormones?  Customized to YOU!  I’ve been prescribing B-HRT since 1996 so am not a “Johnnie-come-lately.”  Shouldn’t hormones be prescribed by a gynecologist?  Put aside all those books your friends have given you to read and put your confidence in someone who will shepherd you through these troubled waters.

“Dr. Taras has been my staple go-to savior for more than 20 years! No matter what my medical or emotional concern is, he has always been available, supportive, and ready with solutions, without imposing an opinion. He has always been able to help and dedicated to helping me no matter what the issue is. The most remarkable thing about Dr. Taras is his overall concern for general well being and desire to care. He also, over my 20+ years history, has always continued to stay on top of trends, innovations, conversation topics and shared with his patient following without imparting his opinion, simply sharing valuable information.”

“Dr. Taras is the kind of doctor you only hear about in Lifetime movies. Kind, caring, knowledgeable. He is proactive in his treatment, educating himself and his patients with the best in healthcare. I have been going to him for over 18 years, first when he delivered my baby and now for every issue I have.
He also takes the time to personally get to know you and is available should you need him in an emergency. He answers his own phone and emails!
He is truly a treasure and the best doctor I’ve ever had the pleasure of dealing with. I am no longer scared to contact a physician if I have a problem.”

“I have been a patient of Dr. Taras for over 10 years. He is the best Dr. I have seen in my life. He takes time to get to know you and listen to all your concerns. He makes me feel comfortable and cared for. He has always been available whenever I needed care. He has helped me successfully get my body and hormones on the right track. I like him so much that he is still my primary care physician even though I moved to Colorado Four years ago. I travel back to California yearly sometimes twice a year just to see him. Dr Taras now cares for my sister as her primary care physician. Thank you Dr. T!!!”
