Patient Testimonials

October 16th, 2014 I had been experiencing very high levels of pain in my arms and legs. I had seen doctors at Vanderbilt had been unable to diagnose the source of the pain or remedy the pain. After 5 minutes with Dr. Tahir he was able to diagnose me and prescribe the correct medicine and I’m so happy to say that I’m pain free today!!!! It’s such a great feeling! I would take a bullet for Dr. Tahir !!!William F.

September 25th, 2014 * * * * * I believe Dr. Farhan Tahir saved my life. In 2010 I was diagnosed by another doctor who told me I had Lupus. This doctor prescribed medications for me which were making me sick. I was suffering from chest pains, heart pains, tightness in my throat, and also had difficulty breathing, among other things. At one point I was taken to the hospital at which time it appeared that I was suffering from a heart attack. From 2010 until I went to see Dr. Farhan in August of 2014 my health was deteriorating. In my estimation the medicine the first doctor was giving me was slowly killing me.


After Dr. Farhan’s first examination he concluded that I didn’t have Lupus at all, and weaned me off the medication. Now, just over a month later, my health has returned due to the diet and exercise Dr. Farhan prescribed.


All I can say is, “thank you Dr. Farhan“.-Gwendolyn F
