Dr. Taub is a rude, vile person. Any doctor who yells at an 85 year old woman who had the nerve to interrupt him and then refused to do her surgery because he couldn’t work with her because she didn’t want to wait and was too demanding according to him. All she did was ask to try and get her surgery as soon as possible, as her intestines were falling out! He needs to have his license revoked. He certainly doesn’t follow his Hippocrates oath. He flew off the handle for just being interrupted.

I would give zero stars if i could. Did a procedure on my mother before looking at her previous records! Caused more harm, gave the wrong medication which caused more harm to her kidneys. On top of that he has the worst bedside manner, along with staff who doesnt like him and could care less about the patients. In a nutshell… run!

DANIELLE Marie DONATO – Jun 30, 2021
I have been a patient of Dr Taub for 14 years and never been disappointed in my experience. He is always thorough and takes time to explain each phase of treatment. I fully trust him and thankful to have this caregiver as my Doctor. I would also like to thank Crystal for the prompt follow up with a request to gain my blood work analysis when it failed to reach the office. She quickly resolved the issue and gave me a follow up call to pass on the doctors review. She is a very outstanding person and a great asset to the staff.

Ray W. USMC – Sep 15, 2020
It was horrible and totally unprofessional. Briefly, I described my symptoms, he provided a 60 second tutorial on the urinary tract and said I needed to schedule two diagnostic procedures. I said that I had questions and was concerned about scheduling the more invasive procedure. He said I had to do both first and added that my resistance was undermining his authority and ordered me to leave. Three minutes after we began I left quietly, after waiting a month for the appointment. Any Dr. who will not answer patient questions is a bad doctor.

Dr. Taub 'dropped me' as a patient because I had to cancel TWO appointments... After I found a new urologist - I filled out a form at Dr. Taub's office requesting that my records get transferred to the new doctor. After three weeks I called Dr. Taub's office and they said they said that I would have to come in and fill out another form - this is NOT acceptable

Fantastic diagnostician. Really smart and really efficient. Five stars for him. But, the staff is not always courteous. Depends on who you get. I'd recommend a reminder class in "the customer is always right." Or, at least, usually right...

Dr. Taub is the most unprofessional Doctor if have ever been to in my 64 years of life. He made we wait over a month to get a follow up appointment and then when I asked him why it took so long to get a follow up appointment he BLEW UP, got in my face and blamed Hillary Clinton, likely because I just asked if he was on vacation or that is a normal wait time for a follow up appointment. I would not recommended Dr. Taub to anyone he as forgotten how to be a Dr and treat patients with respect!

Today was my first visit to Dr. Taub and how glad I am that I followed the recommendation of a friend who is also his patient. The staff was terrific and was a prelude to a fantastic experience with Dr. Taub. He was engaging, comedic and professional for the entirety of my visit. His caring manner far and above exceeded my expectations. I am pleased to be his patient.

Awesome professional. He did a laparoscopic, Davinci robot-assisted, simple prostatetectomy for me Aug 1, 2016 (two weeks ago) and I could not be happier with the results. Absolutely no ill side affects, little to no pain, full control of bodily functions and healing real nicely. Highly recommend Dr. Taub!

Looking forward to a prostate biopsy was scary. Dr Taub alleviated those fears with a constant patter, corny jokes and a soft manner. Most importantly, from the nova-cane shot to the actual sample-taking, it turned out to be a non-event. I highly recommend his procedure to anyone facing same experience. My friends who've had it....they couldn't believe I felt that way afterwords.
