Doctor Taban saved my eyesight. I had a torn retina and he took me immediately. Within hours, Doctor Taban performed laser surgery and repaired the torn retina. I also have Macular Degeneration. Doctor Taban monitors me for both conditions every 6 months. He and his staff are beyond professional...they are the best!

Dr Taban is extremely knowledgeable and passionate about his practice. During my first consultation and throughout the entire process he has been prompt and precise in answering all my questions . The procedure was painless and with a quick recovery. The results are absolutely flawless and natural.

I had a Skype consultation with Dr. Taban about one ptotic eye and skin removal (blepharoplasty) on the other while I was in Europe. From the moment I talked to him I felt like I was in the right hands. He is extremely knowledgable, a leading scholar/publisher in the field, and a very caring and patient doctor. I decided shortly thereafter to schedule surgery (left eye ptosis and bilateral upper blepharoplasty) with him for July and I couldn't be happier with the results. He is the absolute best

Due to eye trauma, I had to undergo a complicated cataract surgery. Dr. Taban performed the surgery and did a wonderful job. He is very knowledgeable and considerate. His staff is professional and courteous. I highly recommend his services.

Dr Taban's Torrance office failed to provide a valid billing statement at the time of service. Repeated calls to his office did not solve this issue. His staff not only failed to provide the requested documents, but repeatedly failed to call back and/or email back any communications on the situation, despite promising to do so. My experience with this office rates less than 1-star. I will never use this office again.

Dr. Taban, is by far the very best in his field of practice. I was headed for a long and painful surgery for my left eye and with his skill I avoided the surgery. My eye is now perfect and my vision is 20/25. Thank you so much.

Dr. Taban is an excellent physician who helped restore my vision. I called on a Saturday and left a message for him as his office was closed. He returned my call after a few hours. Based on his keen observation, he knew this was an emergency and requested my husband and I meet him at his downtown office. Little did I know my eye condition would require immediate medical attention. I shutter to think what would have happened had I not meet this wonderful doctor. I highly recommend him!
