This doctor has an awful bedside manner. I don’t feel comfortable asking him anything because he answers in such a cavalier tone that I don’t really think he even hears me. At one point he literally walked away and LEFT THE ROOM while I was still talking to him. I felt “dismissed”. Then I asked him about a week later if I really could safely take an existing medication with what he prescribed me (because I was not convinced it was safe to mix), and what he said was “fine” during the appointment, all of a sudden WAS NOT. Proves me point that he wasn’t listening OR reading my file for that mattter. You should feel safe and have trust in your doctor. I can’t say I fee that way. I will be looking for another.

Dr. Taub is very well informed. He's smart, maybe brilliant. He shares information willingly and clearly. Looking for a new best friend? Go elsewhere. If you seek open-minded, state of the art treatment this is the place to go. I have only 1 criticism of the practice and it's that the office staff turns over frequently - all at once. Suddenly there are all new faces. Unpleasant staff members can detract from the office visit satisfaction.

I have known Dr Taub for almost 30 years as a colleague and unfortunately as a patient in recent years. It is not at all easy to be a Pain Management Specialist in todays medico-legal climate. Practically no physicians want to do it. There are lots of hoops a doctor has to jump through to prescribe opioids. Dr Taub is a consummate professional in this very difficult arena. I would almost guarantee that all the one star reviews were from patients that did not get all the drugs they were looking for or were not willing to jump through the hoops that are currently required.

Dr. Taub has the worst bedside manner of any doctor i have ever been too. He does not allow you to ask questions or discuss why he has changed your meds. The negative reviews others have posted are ALL VERY TRUE!!!!! He blames the government, the DEA and so forth.He lacks communication skills,empathy,compassion and doesn't even know my medical history and could care less.He pretends to do a physical assessment by touching his stethoscope to your chest for 3 seconds LOL.Who is he fooling?

Dr. Taub has no bedside manner. Talking to patients about life events and struggles proves very difficult for him. He comes in threatens to discharge patients from his practice and does not discuss care plans to get patients where they need to be physically or emotionally. He takes no reposibioity for his actions or decisions, but instead puts full blame on the government. If you are a chronic pain patient, you should keep looking. This man lacks compassion, empathy and strength of character.

This “doctor” has been seeing me for years. I’ve always abided by my pain contract, passed urine tests. He doesn’t even know all of my diagnoses because he won’t let me speak and he doesn’t bother to ask!! He says one thing at an appt and forgets a couple months later and does another. Falls in line with the “guidelines” that are seriously under treating serious pain patients!!! I would suggest you stay far, far away. He’s got no emotion except cold. Walks away when you try to ask ?’s!

Was treated very unprofessional. He was very good at my first visits and due to me being allergic to some medications he prescribed for me, I could not take them. Was not given a new RX for them. Was dismissed without probable cause. Treated me unprofessional and would not let me see him in person at the scheduled appointment time I was in his office. Would not recommend to other patients.

Dr. Taub is very business like and direct. His appointments don't last long which is a benefit when it hurts to sit for long periods. I've never caused him any reason to take my medication or even request a pill count. If you follow his rules he is very easy to get along with. He is in a very tough profession with all the DEA regulations and I've never had any issues with him refusing me medication. If you want a great bedside manner find another doctor.

I have seen Dr. Taub regularly for the past 2+ years, traveling from Troutman to Charlotte, NC. for my pain mgmt treatment and control. I see him every two to three months. Dr. Taub is not only very personable and pleasant, he is also professionally and keenly aware of the many burdensome N.C. Laws and federal government laws regarding his practice and the medicines he prescribes. I have received very adequate pain control plus I've enjoyed his kind manner and the friendliness of his staff.

This is a good doctors office all around. The dr has always been nice and honest in what he thinks is the right choice for the patient. For the people leaving bad reviews and complaining about him taking your medications, you're idiots. This doctor tries to treat your illness at the root cause. Sounds like the ones complaining are only wanting pain meds for their addictions or for their wallets. This is a honest doctor and man. I recommend anyone to visit Dr. Taub.

I thought a Pain Management Doctor was suppose to help you manage your pain? How can you call yourself a Pain Management Doctor and not help you manage the pain? By taking away your medications and not having a plan as to what your patients are suppose to do then...Seek all other options before considering this Pain Management Clinic if you have chronic pain to be managed.

He is the most arrogant doctor i've ever met. He has no bedside manner whatsoever. He always is negative in everything he says to you and doesn't care about helping you get relief from your pain. He's always wanting to take away your medication and not give you the meds you need to get relief. Why does he call himself a pain management doctor when he doesn't help you manage your pain. He's an absolute joke for a doctor.
