Very disrespectful of patients and accusatory in nature to their medical conditions. This being said for a friend since he fears reprisal from his practitioner

I have been going to Dr. Tabbaa since March. I am very satisfied with my treatment. I had to go to the emergency room in another state on a Sunday and he quickly responded to the ER doctor. He spends a lot of time with me at each appointment and I am so happy my PCP referred him

I was experiencing TIA symptoms and pain in my wrists and spine. Dr. Tabbaa is so nice, attentive and caring. He has helped me stop taking a lot of unnecessary medications.

Dr. and office staff have no bedside manner at all, and didn't inform me that they were currently in a temporary residence/ cash only. The nurse that actually completed the procedure was the only one who seemed to care at all. Went for chronic wrist pain with known cause, and was told to simply "take vitamin B" and the Dr. left with no other discussion/ time for me to ask questions. Have not heard ANYTHING since then, and spoke to my GP and will be receiving a 2nd opinion from another Dr. soon.

I was t-boned by an uninsured driver who recklessly whipped around a stopped semi at a high rate of speed and bashed my head on the frame of my vehicle on impact. Thankfully I was wearing a seatbelt. Needless to say I had a concussion among other things and my insurance company sent me here for evaluation. Doctor said that I was perfectly healthy, suggested I was faking it, and to go elsewhere. Wow.

Dr. Tabbaa is great. I've never had any kind of problem with him or his staff. He told me he is going to take me off some of my meds which I wasn't totally comfortable with but he explained why which made sense. We unfortunately weren't able to do it but he's the only Dr that has ever set a goal of trying to take me off some of my medication. He isn't the kind of Dr that wants to give you medication after medication. He always asks about my kids. I'd definitely recommend him.

Always late for appointments, keeps you waiting. The nurse does most of the work. His bedside manor is not up to par. He talks down to elderly. The office needs a deep cleaning.

I was diagnosed with GBS 6 weeks ago. We just arrived in Panama City beach and was looking for a neurologist. Having spent several weeks in the hospital, I met with several neurolists and Doctors. None of them could compare with my visit today with Dr. Tabba. He was very knowledgeable, answered my many questions and gave me great hope for a recovery. I'd recommend using him for a relaxed, comfortable, and sometimes humorous experience.
