  • 4/20/2024
    Doctors (SRT), nurses and staff are very friendly, good hearted people that do care about patients and their families. And when doctors might not know exactly what is going on with a patient that might be having pain or an illness of some sort, the doctors don't give up nor do they release the patient, instead they continue to try to help. Which is a very good thing.

    Dr. Tarantolo is the best doctor I gave ever seen. But, on the occasions when I have seen one of the nurse practitioners on a regular appointment, I have been very pleased. They are all smart, kind, invested in the conversation and interested in how I am doing. You can’t ask for anything more than that. It goes along with the entire staff from the reception through the lab, and all of the nurses.

  • 01/18/23
    Everything is always done with excellence during my experiences (and my husband's) with Dr. Tarantolo and all other staff. I thought today (Jan. 18) as we both left the clinic that I don't know how they all coordinate everything so well including the schedule of upcoming appointments to provide us as we are checking out. Amazing--and appreciated very much!
  • 01/17/23

  • 01/11/23
  • 01/06/23
    I tell everyone I know that Dr Tarantolo is the best doctor I have ever had.
  • 06/21/22
    The new electronic check-in process was a bit frustrating. Especially when I'd completed the check-in I was given ads for Medicare Advantage and a survey to complete. If the check-in process is to be successful, it should just be a quick check-in without added stuff for me to go through.
  • 07/19/22
    Every aspect of your staffing is fantastic. Even your volunteers do an excellent job. Thank you to all of you.
  • 07/15/22

  • 07/28/22
    My doctor is Dr. Tarantolo at Legacy in Omaha. I'm very pleased that I can get most of my injections at the Fremont office. The Receptionist here is very friendly, always glad to see me. And there are three wonderful ladies in the treatment room who are always interested in how things are going and just very nice people. Mostly talk about life outside of this.
  • 06/13/22
    Love this cancer center. Everyone is so nice & makes you feel like you are home! It means a lot when you are sick. Dr Tarantolol is the man! I couldn’t ask for a more knowledgeable Dr that has my best interest in everything! He is straight up which I love about him too! I tell people all the time to switch to your facility if they have cancer.
  • 10/26/22

  • 11/08/22
    I saw Dr Tarantolos, who was extremely personable, friendly, asked pertinent questions and was right-on-the-money. The labs required were quickly and efficiently done and we were out in no time. I was really impressed with the whole opeation!
  • 11/09/22
    Stefano Tarantolo is great.
  • 10/04/22
    There are days where parking has become an issue at the Legacy location. I've had to wait in the parking lot for someone to leave in order to get a spot.
  • 10/11/22
    Dr. Tarantolo and his PA and nurses are excellent and answered all of my and my family’s questions.
  • 07/08/22
    I love this clinic and all the staff. They are all very caring and considerate.
  • 09/06/22
    Ever since I have been under Dr. Tarantolo's care, I have my blood pulled every six months. Each time I have it pulled at Methodist Eastabrook, there have been delays due to unknown tests ordered that didn't come through NCS to Cerner correctly. I have had to wait as long as an hour as they sorted out the tests with Dr. Tarantolo's office. There were further delays as the phlebotomist figured out which tubes to use for these miscellaneous tests. This time I called ahead and the NCS nurse worked it through with Methodist and it was a total breeze -- back on the road in 20 minutes. Thanks for the help!
  • 10/21/22
    Physicians Assistant Nurse, Rachel was excellent in determining issues I was having and getting CtScan of my lungs while I was there. Getting it done and prescribing antibiotic.
  • 06/24/22
    Everyone there treats me as if I am there only one to care for. I see and feel the LOVE and care everyone gets!!
  • 10/19/22
    From walking into bldg there was immediate assistance since this was our first visit. Very professional and helpful sign in lady who works under Dr. Tarantolo who checked us in and who took care of scheduling our upcoming apts. Also “Noel” who was very professional and sweet with checking his BP, height/weight, etc and taking us to room to see Dr.T. Our meeting with Dr Tarantolo was very calming, as he explained everything and spent time with us which meant a lot. I have heard many many many wonderful words about him and we are so blessed to have him as Ray’s doctor.
  • 08/18/22
    I liked coming here for all the reasons stated above.

  • 07/28/22
    Dr. Tarantolo is very conscientious in his efforts to prevent a clot recurrence. When I called the office with a positive test, the staff quickly told me they would take over the entire management of my covid, not just the clotting disorder issue. That is very helpful in complex situations, to know "who is on first." I have picked up my meds and have started on them. Thanks everyone.
  • 08/24/22
    Your people top to bottom are spectacular!
  • 08/31/22
    I feel so comfortable at any location. Probably because the staff works at all locations as they follow their assigned doctors. It is always nice to see familiar staff that have helped me prepare for a doctor or infusion visit.
  • 08/26/22
    It would have been helpful if my medical history and most recent medical assessment were reviewed PRIOR to walking into the exam room. Unfortunately, I was the only one that knew the pace of my doctor’s assessments and CT and colonoscopy calendars.
  • 07/01/22
    I feel like I’m on vacation when I’m here. Thank you for your care!!
  • 09/22/22
    Of all my providers - THIS is by far THE VERY BEST!!!! I wish others would model the way you operate!!

    Only one slight concern. The person drawing my blood and during the process dropped something on the floor and picked it up and continued without any sanitation effort. I was just concerned about the infection possibility to me during the process. Otherwise the person did an excellent job.

    I am most appreciative of the efforts made to schedule both my husband and myself back-to-back with Dr. Tarantolo, It makes my life a whole lot easier. He does a wonderful job of explaining our situations so that we both understand what is going on and patiently responds to all of our questions.
