I want to thank you and show my heartfelt appreciation for your extreme surgical knowledge and expertise. I consulted other neurosurgeons but after meeting you, I knew you were the surgeon I could go with. Your calm demeanor, clear explanations, and obvious surgical experience gave me the confidence needed. It has been seven weeks since you performed a laminectomy and fusion from S1 to L2 and I have not had any pain. I am walking without the pain and numbness I had for four years. Thank you!
Dr. Taban took care of my 86 year old aunt. She lived with pain for over 20 years, but no medication or injections could help any longer. Surgery was the only option left. Her surgery went so well that she has no pain after only 3 1/2 weeks. Dr. Taban is a very knowledgeable and skilled surgeon and his staff is very nice and caring. Thank you!
Dr. Taban and his highly professional staff make the patient feel comfortable. I was literally crippled for two years, dragging my leg and having a miserable experience living that way. After seeing three different neurosurgeons, I chose Dr. Taban because he is exceptionally experienced, meticulous, and detail oriented. He gave me a second chance at living a full life again. He is well worth "waiting" for because of his expertise and focus on delivering outstanding patient care. I recommend him unconditionally!
I had a very positive experience. I am two months post op and feeling very well -- able to walk as long as I want. My legs and feet no longer go numb. I had S1 to L5 surgery, with laminectomies and bone fusion. I have a very high regard for Dr. Taban and would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone.
