This man is so kind and personable. I had confidence in him as my physician recommended him very highly, and then he made tests that normally we dread as easy as possible. Answered all of my questions patiently.

Just had my first EGD Procedure and was lucky to have Dr Tabbaa! I was quite nervous yet his team explained everything from start to finish and made me feel very welcomed. They listened to my concerns and answered me straight away. No issues, slept through it all :) Would absolutely recommend Dr Tabbaa and his team!!!

Dr. Tabaa is very knowledgeable, courteous and cares about his patients. I have had years of intestinal issues , and he helped me get this problem under control.

I was referred to Dr. Tabbaa and my treatment from the staff to the doctor was excellent! He explained what he thought was the problem and the plan to confirm. Thankfully, it wasn't anything bad! I would recommend him in a heartbeat!

I was referred to Dr. Tabbaa by my PCP to consult a positive Hep C blood test. checked in and was taken for wt. & blood pressure and then escourted to an exam room. After 42 an ass't. came in and asked me questions whose answers I had given to the 1st nurse. About 4 after her departure the Dr. entered the room. He didn't even sit down. He told me he was sending me for a more extensive blood test. The entire time he spent w/me was 2. So much more to say but no space. I won't go back.

Saw him for what I think is IBS. My first apt lasted a grand total of 10 min. He ordered a colonoscopy. $ 600 later colonoscopy came back OK and then he told me I needed a high fiber diet (which I already do.) I still had extreme gut pain so I came back. The 2nd apt lasted a grand total of 2 min and he told me I was looking too much into my symptoms & ordered a bunch of tests. Came in for test not knowing I needed to fast so I had to reschedule. Still no relief, just aggravation. So done.

Ive been going to North Shore for 15 years. I used to get excellent care. Now when I go in for an office visit I dont get to see Dr Tabaa, only his nurse. Recently I had a bout with Crohns so I went in for a visit, they scheduled lab tests and a colonoscopy which I did. I called asking for a refill in my prescription this week and they told me to get more labs done and come in for an office visit with his nurse again. My opinion is they just want more money from me and my insurance company.
