Dr. TAAMS has been our Doctor since our kids were born. (31 yrs.)
He has been so gracious to my 90 yr. old mother in keeping her healthy. We are still in shock and unbelief but appreciate everything he has done in keeping us healthy . No words can express how thankful we are to be under his care . Val

Relation: Friend/Patient

I just got news of Dr Taams passing. He was of so much help to me from 1990 to 2015. I was inspired to go into the Natural Healing industry because of his work. A man who was passionate about what he did, and was always nice to visit his beautiful home. My heart and prayers and condolences go out to the family. xo
