    - Dr Tauben is out of date and out of his depth in treating pain or interacting in a competent manner. You will not get the medical help you need- he's a classic narcissist - Kept me waiting over 30 minutes both times I saw him- the office runs with a "late board" yet they don't bother to mark it and they all run late - I found him very unhelpful. I've since found a pain specialist who understands chronic pain and the whole body systems and the emotional components of pain. Avoid.
