Best pain doctor I've ever seen. Yes, as mentioned on other review he does run behind but I never felt rushed once he enters the room. I moved to AZ a few months ago & had to get a new pain doctor. This process made me realize how great Dr. Tauben really is. I learned so much about mind/ body experience and how it can affect my pain. He is incredibly knowledgeable about pain medication and he is eager to pass it on. Great doctor!

- Dr Tauben is out of date and out of his depth in treating pain or interacting in a competent manner.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.
