I had a total knee replacement approximately 8 weeks ago. I can't say enough about good things about Dr. Taba and his staff. I've had a quick recovery thanks to having top surgeon and staff. I would never go to another doctor.

Dr. Taba might be a competent surgeon for the most routine type of orthopedic surgery, but I would not trust his ability to deal with anything difficult. His typical wait time for an office visit is in excess of FOUR hours. It is almost unbelievable. And, I think it is indicative of his entire practice. Caution.

I would have to give Dr Taba no stars as he and his office are totally inefficient. My last appointment in September was at 2:00 pm, I sat for over an hour pass my appointment in the waiting full of people. I asked how much longer they said just a few more minutes so I continued to wait and was finally called back after waiting 1 hr and 15 minutes in the waiting room. I thought finally but no I had to wait another 1 hour forThe visit to take less than 15 min. Not worth the wait!!

Dr Taba is very nice and as of now I will continue to see him with my hip issue but they are extremely busy and seem to be in a rush at all times. The wait time is extremely long and once you actually get to see the dr it is rushed. My issue is the front staff. In person they seem nice but when you have them on the phone it is a constant rush. They don't even let you finish a sentence before they say please hold and transfer you. They cut you off and constantly sound annoyed at you.

I write this as I sit in the waiting room 45 minutes past my appointment. The first visit took over 1 1/2 hours to be seen, and we didn't see the Dr. - I was seen by his assistant. They were to call in 2 prescriptions, one which was a day late and the other never happened. Don't bother calling because no one answers - left vm and never heard back. They are very good at remindinding you of your appointment (2 automated and one real person) and for collecting co-pay ( happens before your 1 hr wait

My son broke his finger and we visited an urgent clinic and used the clinic's referral program because we are new to the DFW area. He and his staff are very nice and friendly, but we waited a LONG time to be seen. Our appointment was at 2:30 pm we arrived at 2 pm, because we knew we were new patients and had to complete paperwork, but we did not leave until almost 5 pm. We had a rushed encounter with Dr. Taba; he seemed knowledgeable, but didn't spend attentive quality time with us.
My husband got an appointment with Dr Taba ; at that day he was seen by another person ( not sure if she was a doctor or assistant) & he was told doctor had a surgery !so my husband was not seen by Dr Taba & They charged my insurance for a visit & x-Ray for $150 & my husband still has the same issue he had before !!! Not satisfied at all with their services ; the receptionist should have told my husband before seeing him ;( They don't care, they just use your insurance for nothing!
in Dallas, TX |
I don't how my experience would have been after waiting an hour in waiting room. I checked on how much longer the wait would, since they called a person that arrived thirty minutes after I did. I was told they were just entering my information and they did not know how much longer it would be. I left since I had taken time off for work. I am now getting phone calls that I missed my appointment.
