3 Reasons Doctors NEVER Get Surgery
And You Shouldn't Either
Imagine not needing pain medication any longer.
No longer counting the days until “unavoidable” surgery.
Within your body you have built-in, joint-preserving, longevity programming. You just need to learn how to activate it!
There IS another path to explore.
Achieving a true sense of health requires the optimal function and health of your musculoskeletal system — they are sides of the same coin. That’s why Origen’s proprietary integrative treatments focus on both.
What do ORIGEN’s patients have to say?
I have been seeing Dr. Tait for several years now for the treatment of recurring back pain. This condition is something that I have lived with for many years prior to my visits to Dr. Tait but I had never received any treatments that were as effective as the trigger point injections that Dr. Tait has administered. His treatment has been truly remarkable and has enabled me to function as near normal as my age and condition could possibly allow. He is curious and innovative in his practice of medicine, and his method of engaging with his patients is both professional and personal. He is truly interested in the well being of patients and in communicating his treatment plan in clear and concise language to achieve optimal results. Dr. Tait is an absolute gem within the medical community and he and his staff at Origen Orthopedics are an absolute delight to visit. From scheduling to insurance processing, the personal interaction and follow-up are thorough and precise. They are just great!
My kind of place! Dr. Tait is thorough, not rushed, explains all the options in language I understand and helps me make educated decision regarding my issues. Speaking of issues, I am walking normal again, with limited pain (instead of awful pain), the use of my legs and hips has improved greatly and I continue to have improvement as we work together as a team. Origen's staff is fantastic, organized and prepared for each patient. The location is convenient and the office is beautiful, clean and comforting. I highly recommend you schedule a visit with Dr. Tait today and discover what he may be able to do to help you!
Could not be happier with my experience. Dr Tait is amazing, caring and a great listener. We have been working together for 3 years and Dr. Tait has made a huge difference in reducing my level of pain without surgery! I am a believer, and would recommend him and his fantastic loving staff.
I visited Dr Tait for a back problem. The visit was very helpful and informative. He went over the things that we could do. And the possible result. I was very encouraged. After 2 visits I was vastly improved.I would encourage anyone to seek him for medical treatment and advice.His staff is very attentive and professional.
I just had stem cell therapy on my knee with Dr Tait and am pleasantly surprised with my results. I couldn’t squat, run or walk without pain and swelling. After my 2 treatments I can now do everything at almost 100% and every week feels better and better. Dr Tait and his staff were excellent at bedside manner, customer service and super informative about my treatments. 10/10 would recommend!!
I saw Dr. Tait right before Christmas to get my knee drained and injected w a regenerative therapy and i couldn’t be happier and praise him enough. I’ve been to multiple doctors to treat my knee and my experience at Rejuv Medical has been far superior than the rest. He truly has hands of Gold, takes his time, cares about his patients and makes sure you are comfortable and painless during procedures. I was not asked to write this review, i just think people need to know how great he is. Thanks so much Dr. Tait and staff. I’m already sending you a referral.
Dr. Tait is an exceptional doctor who takes the time to explain the course of treatment he plans for you. In addition to that, he is an educator who provides his patients with the knowledge that is needed to make them healthier. I was having pain in my hip, but after he injected me with my own blood platelets, my body healed itself. He is unlike any doctor I have visited in the past. He treats you in non- invasive ways and wants to make you the healthiest version of yourself!
Dr Tait is a gifted doctor with a strong desire to get better everyday. I am super excited going forward with Dr Tait as my doctor for my overall health not just for pain. I spent my time and money for over a year seeing traditional doctors without any success. Thank you Dr Tait - You are Da Man!
I am thrilled with my experience with Rejuv Medical Southwest. All of my interactions with Dr. Tait and staff have been excellent. They are professional, organized and run a positive, patient-oriented clinic. I left my first visit with all the information I needed to make an informed decision about treatment for my knee problems. My stem cell treatment was six months ago. My results have been amazing - truly life changing.
Dr. Tait took a lot of time intaking me. It was clear he had read all my paperwork and imaging in advance. He had questions for me to start off which I liked. He listened to all my questions. I didn’t feel rushed. He spent an hour with me. More time than any other doctor. He took a systems approach and not just focusing on one part. He wants to be proactive and not just reactive. I like that too. He had a different take on my pain and our path to better health than anyone else has. I really felt he knows his stuff and I could trust him. I haven’t had any treatment yet so I can’t speak to that. But the first appointment experience was excellent.
