Excellent, as always. I've been with him for 12 years now!
New York, NY |
Dr. Tabaee is incredibly knowledgeable and truly cares about his patients!
Brooklyn, NY |
Dr Tabaee gave me my senses of taste and smell back after 3 years without, after he performed my sinus surgery in 2013. He is competent, careful and organized in his diagnoses and courses of treatment. I continue treatment with him and he is an effective communicator and great about returning calls. His manner is professional and caring.

Excellent dr. Highly recommend him!

I highly recommend Dr Tabaee. He's thorough with examinations; clear & concise with explanations; & extremely caring. He saw opportunities to improve my sinuses & breathing which other ENTs hadn't. He advocated non-surgical treatments & only after we exhausted those was surgery discussed. The two minimally invasive procedures he performed were successful. Dr Tabaee's clinical instincts & surgical skills are first rate.
Bronx, NY |
Dr. Tabaee is extremely knowledgeable in his field. He is careful, decisive and calm. He listens and explains all the possible options when it comes to the treatment. Furthermore, he is kind and personal. The appointments were always on time. His staff members are nice and they feel educated.
Two surgeries with him, neither fixed my problem.
in new york, ny |
I had been diagnosed with a deviated septum by other otolarynogolists but none did anything to improve y breathing or pros and cons of options for someone of 72 . Dr. Tabaee is trying the noninvasive first to see the benefits before possibly an operation. Dr. Tabaee is highly focused, serious in his bedside manner, not warm and fuzzy. That's fine with me because he is truly professional and knowledgeable in his speciality. I trust him and am glad I finally found an exceptional otolarynogoli
