Dr Taubin maY APPEAR abrupt, rude, too quick, but he is the smartest, most thorough doctor I've ever known. I had a few problems simultaneously and numerous other doctors & specialists misdiagnosed me, even had me crying as they insulted me about sexual practices (I was unmarried and no sex then). Dr.Taubin was the ONLY one who immediately saw the problems, sent me to his hand-picked specialsts to get proper diagnosis/ treatment. He followed up with those doctors. LOVE HIM. So does my husband.

Dr. Taubin is an excellent doctor, who has helped me deal with my allergies, respiratory issues and just any illness that has come up for the past 20 years. Yes, you will wait to see him, but that's because he has this weird notion that he should see patients when they're sick and not make them wait at home. I can't count how many times I've slipped in without an appointment and it saved me. He talks fast, but he gives you every minute you need. He is a lovely person as well.
