All of Dr Tafoya’s assis­tants have been pro­fes­sional, cour­te­ous, respect­ful, and help­ful! Dr Tafoya always takes the time to explain every pro­ce­dure to me. He does not rush. –A Cur­rent Patient

Dr Tafoya and his staff at Pacific Retina Care are pro­fes­sional, kind, and accom­mo­dat­ing. –A Happy Client
Dr Tafoya is very pro­fes­sional. He explains what he is doing and answers ques­tions. I’ve asked about the tests he is doing and he will show/display the photo of my eye and bring it to my level so I understand.

My Optometrist referred me to Dr. Tafoya after dis­cov­er­ing my mac­u­lar degen­er­a­tion prob­lem. With his state-of-the-art equip­ment, he skill­fully attended to my eye prob­lem and now I can see so much bet­ter! I rate Dr. Tafoya a Five Star rat­ing! He is the best!

My first meet­ing with Dr. Tafoya was pretty scary because he described the process for my eye treat­ment of mac­u­lar degen­er­a­tion. Amidst high anx­i­ety and fear, decided to go ahead with the treat­ment. Best deci­sion I ever made in a long while! He is a very car­ing doc­tor and I highly rec­om­mend him to any­one with this dis­ease. Read more: http://www.vitals.com/doctors/Dr_Mark_Tafoya/reviews#ixzz2PuOcqdMT
A cou­ple weeks ago I found out I had a retina detach­ment in my right eye. My optometrist referred me to oph­thal­mol­o­gist Dr. Tafoya, which I am very grate­ful and for­tu­nate that she did — he saved my eye! When I first walked into the office I noticed how clean and neat the wait­ing area was. The staff was very pro­fes­sional, friendly and effi­cient. Also, I was seen on time (unlike other doc­tor offices where you wait long and seen by the doc­tor for only five or ten min­utes). –From a Sat­is­fied Yelper
Dr. Tafoya was very calm and thor­ough when explain­ing what had hap­pened to my eye and what needed to be done. He was very patient with all the ques­tions I had and made sure I under­stood what was explained. I’ve gone back a cou­ple more times for fol­low up appoint­ments after my surgery and always had the same treat­ment. Although the recov­ery was chal­leng­ing, Dr. Tafoya and his staff were always very help­ful and con­cerned and made me feel secure. The expe­ri­ence I had with my eye was unfor­tu­nate but I am con­fi­dent now that my eyes will always have the best treat­ment. If you are expe­ri­enc­ing any issues with your retina, Dr. Tafoya is the oph­thal­mol­o­gist to see. You will be a very happy patient! –From a sat­is­fied Yelper
