Since 2009, Dr. Taca consistently gets voted as one of the Best Doctors of America in General Psychiatry and Addiction Psychiatry. This distinction is only offered to those physicians who have been selected by consensus of their peers to be included in Best Doctors. Only about 5% of all doctors in the U.S. are honored in this way by their colleagues as the result of a nationwide survey in which doctors cast more than one million votes.
