I have been with DrTashman for over 25 years. I was new to the area and a neighbor recommended him. I was totally comfortable with him from my 1 st visit. He does not rely on staff to do your vital sign/ weigh etc.. Dr. Tashman does all your care himself. His exams are thorough to include a check of your thyroid, heart and lungs. He takes the time to sit and talk with you in his office . He makes you feel as if you are his only patient. I have had 2 healthy births. My water was broken with both deliveries- one of which was unmedicated. I did not tear and my recovery was uncomplicated. I recommend DrTashman to all my friends and daughter's friend who are now having babies . Dr. Tashman's expertise and professionalism are priceless. Thank you Dr.Tashman

Dr. Tashman just delivered my 4th baby. I only wish I had found him sooner. Having gone through 3 previous pregnancies/deliveries I knew what kind of care I wanted and Dr. Tashman checked off every box and more! I had changed ObGyn practices several times during my other pregnancies…I didn’t want another alarmist doctor who treated pregnancy like a medical condition that needed to be “managed”. I didn’t want to wait 45 mins for my office visits. I wanted someone who knew me and didn’t just show up the last 10 mins to “catch” the baby. I wanted to talk to my doctor and not some random nurse when I had a question. I gave up on finding an ObGyn and thought a hospital-based midwife practice was the way to go. The midwife practice was great…until I had a medical question/concern. When my blood pressure started to go up is when things really hit the fan. I did not feel like I was in capable hands at all and wound up being induced 3 weeks early...luckily I have big babies and she was fine. With my 4th pregnancy I decided to go back to the drawing board and find an ObGyn who would support me like a midwife but have the medical expertise and clout in the hospital to take control of the situation if something went wrong. Enter Dr. Tashman! He would call me back himself with any and every question I had, he respected my desire to have an unmedicated birth and never pushed for an induction ( for those of you who worry about a solo practitioner missing the birth and/or pushing for convenience inductions, I went into labor during Memorial Day w/e and Dr Tashman got to the hospital shortly after I did). And to the previous reviewer who said rupturing her membranes made her tear badly, I will say that is absolutely untrue. My midwives (who barely even did internal exams to not "mess" with things ) ruptured my membranes for 2 of my deliveries, as did Dr Tashman with my 4th baby, and I never tore. I was getting very tired of being in the middle stages of labor, too painful to ignore but not intense enough to get things going, and rupturing my membranes helped the process along so I had the strength and stamina to keep going and get to the finish line. Something I will never forget is shortly after delivering Dr Tashman grabbed the phone and called down for my meal, as they were about to close, and he didn’t want me getting stuck eating the cold sandwiches/snacks they keep on hand in postpartum. That is the kind of doctor he is!

Impatient and upset when asked questions. He is very nice when you do not have concerns, which is likely why there are not more negative reviews.
He rushed labor by breaking my water and then the baby came so fast I tore badly. He said it was superficial tearing but admitted later it was deeper than he let on.
Overall, I did not feel he had my best interest in mind. I hope this help.

I have been with Dr. Tashman since I was put on "the pill" by my mother (who had 30 years as a registered nurse) the very day I started menstrating at the age of 13, I am 41 now. I am biased to his style of care which I would define as "old-fashion geniune care/empathy for each patient", though at this point I have known him for such a long period of time that I trust him as a true friend and with my life. I have

I chose Dr. Tashman after our IVF nurse recommended to us, I could not be happier with our final decision. Dr. Tashman is very clear with "how the process will take place". We left the office feeling totally in good hands! I love the fact the he is *solo-practitioner, giving us the opportunity to really develop a honest and safe patient-doctor’s relationship. He totally cares for one -as patient- and the baby. Very easy, he loves to explain everything (respectfully) step by step to make sure "you are on board” and gives you relieve in all senses. He is very thoughtful, warm and caring doctor. Great -bedside manner. Wait time was less than 30min. New patient documents are minimum and easy.

All this reviews say he is so kind, but I found him to be rushed and gets mad in more than one occasion. I don't know if we are seeing the same doctor because with me he is super sweet until I question a decision or ask him something. Then he gets angry. I was hoping I had just caught him at a bad day so I stuck it out but I am now looking elsewhere. I am late in my pregnancy so I hope I'll be able to find someone that will take me on. If he is like this now who knows how he will be during the main event and I don't like to be bullied. So sad.

I went to Dr. Tashman for my pregnancy as it was my first based on online reviews, and I had never found an OBGYN that I had seen previously. Dr. Tashman was excellent throughout the process. As has been said here before, the office is "old school" - Dr. Tashman does his own blood draws and there isn't a ton of fancy stuff around the office. However, the office is a well oiled machine, and in my 9 months of pregnancy, I don't think I ever waited more than 5 minutes for any appointment, and always was able to schedule my appointments with ease. Jenny was very friendly (not often seen these days with front office staff).

I had an uncomplicated pregnancy (and I was fairly relaxed throughout my pregnancy despite it being my first), but Dr. Tashman took the time to explain things to me. When I was in labor, despite concerns about size or ability to get the baby out, he didn't jump directly to the option of having a csection. He did stay for the entire active pushing phase (which I didn't expect), and it was good to know everything was moving along. Overall, he was very good, and I would definitely go back to him.

One thing to keep in mind is he is a solo practitioner. The benefit is that you develop a more consistent relationship with the doctor who is going to deliver your baby, but downside is that there is a small chance that he may be unavailable. Therefore, you are assuming the risk that at certain times of the year, he may be unavailable . I was due in late August, and I knew this was a possibility from the beginning. However, I thought the risk was worth it for a doctor that had excellent experience and bedside manner as Dr. Tashman did. In the end, it didn't matter, but it was a factor that played into my initial decision. However, as I said, if I have another baby, I will be going to Dr. Tashman.

I chose Dr. Tashman as my OB for my recent pregnancy based on excellent reviews and a personal recommendation, and I could not have been happier with my choice. Dr. Tashman is a solo practitioner, which allowed me to really develop a relationship with him as my caregiver, rather than cycling trough multiple MDs in a practice. It’s a rarity to find a doctor who will sit down to talk to you and really understands a patient’s perspective, but Dr. Tashman demonstrated time and again that he does just that. Pregnancy brought out neuroses and fears I didn’t know that I had. Dr. Tashman showed great patience and was able to anticipate and address my concerns. He was thoughtful enough to take it upon himself to call me and check in when he knew I was struggling with decisions and made himself available to answer any questions that I had. His office manager is excellent. She is always friendly and made it very easy to schedule appointments. I never had any issues getting an appointment and was never kept waiting before my appointments. I never encountered any issues with billing (and this is huge as billing mistakes are common in doctors’ offices and can create a heavy amount of inconvenience and stress). I highly recommend Dr. Tashman.

I just went to see Dr. Tashman for the first time. He is the most thoughtful, kind, compassionate, warm, and caring doctor I have ever seen. He put me at ease and helped me feel completely comfortable. He draws blood himself, and I have never had an easier blood draw. It didn't hurt at all. I wish I had found him before I already had my twins. He is a gem. I highly recommend him to any woman. Before the exam, he asked me if I preferred to have another person in the room, when he is doing the annual exam. I have never had a doctor respectful enough to ask what I preferred. He is one of a kind and absolutely the best!!!

Dr. Tashman has been my OBGYN since I was 18 years old; now I am in my mid-40's. I moved away in my early twenties to another state, and returned to him when I moved back to Virginia. I absolutely trust in his knowledge, frankness, kindness, and ability to see me through it all. Let's face it...OBGYN's are much more than a general practice doctor in a woman's life. I highly recommend Dr. Tashman.
