Dr. Tabaee performed sinus surgery for me a few years ago and has supervised my care since then. He's a genuinely caring practitioner -- a good listener, attentive to detail, and able to see the big picture. I'm glad to have found him, and happy to be his patient.

waiting time is long. The actual talk time is 10min. The exam is quick and simple but the charge is a lot. Not much conclusive info was given. My feeling is that it is better to visit an allergy doc for example directly if you know your problems, which is way cheaper and provides more services (same and more exams). Of course it could be NYP vs other clinics issues. May not relate to Dr. Tabaee.

I see Dr. Tabaee whenever I have an ENT issue following transphenoidal surgery 5 years ago. Post-surgery, I am only comfortable under his care. He is thorough, gentle, and has the rare combination of compassion and medical expertise. I have and will continue to recommend Dr. Tabaee to my friends and family.

I met Dr. Tabaee as part of the team that removed 100% of my pituitary tumor, which had been described as inoperable for years previously. He is a very skilled, open and communicative physician who I am extremely glad to have caring for me.
