    Dr. Taban is a wonderful doctor. I would recommend him to family and friends. He is caring, knowledgeable, and patient. He answered all of my questions and made it very easy for me to make a decision to have surgery. The surgery went very well. I am very happy and elated to be one of his patients. Among all of the doctors I have had in the past, he is rated as number one in my book.

    I am so thankful for Dr. Taban and his staff. This was not an easy decision for me to have surgery but I did. Dr. Taban is known for his professional and precise expertise as a surgeon. There are not enough words of gratitude that I have for the doctor. I feel I have many more years of productive life because of the surgery. Dr. Taban's staff make it a pleasure for me to be at my appointments.

    I had severe pain generating from lower back down both sides down both legs. I was in constant pain. Dr. Taban told me the surgery would help. I had the surgery and am happy to say he was right. Since the surgery there hasn't been any pain where it was before. I am still recovering but my pain is much better and much more manageable. I have to thank God for Dr. Taban. I am on a good road to recovery. I shooting for 100%

    4 years ago my daughter couldn't walk without a walker and was in pain for 16months before we saw Dr Taban. When we meet with him he took the time to explain our options in great detail. He is compassionate kind and a genius. To see my daughter today you would have no idea she had disc replacement and spinal fusion. She's 26 now and wake boards hikes paddle boards etc. this man is my MIRACLE DOCTOR. Ellen is a doll very helful and compassionate! THANK YOU for giving my daughter her life back.

    Dear Dr. Taban, I want to thank you for surgically removing the pain from my back and radiating pain down my right leg with your MIRACLE hands. I will also be indebted to you for the pain you relieved and removed from me. I can't thank you enough for giving my life back. Robert.

    It's been a few months since my surgery and not a day goes by that I am not beyond grateful for the positive impact you have had on my life. Last year, I couldn't have imagined living pain-free. It seemed like a far-away dream. Because of my lower back and leg pain, I was not able to walk or sleep. Now, because of your incredible skill, that dream has become a reality. There are not enough words to describe how much my family and I admire you. You are and will always be in our prayers.

    I am incredibly grateful to be sent to Dr. Asher Taban by my primary care doctor. I had months of back pain which traveled down my left leg and hip, making it difficult to walk and I was in pain no matter what I did; walking, sitting, standing, lying down were all painful positions. When Dr. Taban met me he was kind, patient, and informative. It's three months after surgery and I have no pain. His surgical skill enabled me to return to my active life as a theater professor and dancer.

    I could write a lot about Dr Asher Taban and his office staff, but to sum it up quickly and efficiently, the man is a genius! I did my homework before seeing him and he got high praise from everyone. And I am right there alongside each of them. When dealing with something as delicate as back surgery, you want a genius on your side. Bottom line! Enough said!!

    Taban was extremely rude, disrespectful, overall had the cruelest demeanor.I have a very debilitating condition, yet he would not consult or help me!! i will not recommend him. Also, many people have had similar experience with him I believe he needs to see a love doc
