He performed my panniculectomy. Great bed side manner. So much so that he will be doing my breast reduction as well. Great, caring, thorough Doctor.

The trauma caused my family after Taub operated on my dad in 2017 has delayed this review. My father had a hockey puck-sized wound on his head after a sarcoma removal to be closed up. We were told it would be a 1.5-2 hr surgery. 4 hrs in, we begged OR to update us. 5.5 hrs later, Dad was out. Seeing the results once revealed was a horror show. Dad's head is deformed to this day. Taub's 3-minute explanation was incomplete and nonchalant. Mt. Sinai ethics never had him show at the meetings we had, nor did anyone take responsibility. We suspect Taub left the OR and the intern botched the job but we will never know the truth. Taub's rushed speech and short visits leading up to the surgery was the case, as another review stated, but that behavior was the least of our worries.

Dr. Taub is by far the best surgeon, in every way, that I have ever encountered. I can hands down say that choosing him was one of the best decisions I have ever made in my life. He did such an exceptional job, he is comforting, honest, supportive, professional & reassuring. I am so beyond grateful for Dr. Taub, Mt. Sinai and any nurse/doctor who was by my side as they truly made this an amazing and comfortable experience. He is the best surgeon & anyone and everyone should use him!!!!

I was referred to Dr. Taub by another doctor and called 3 consecutive days, then sent an appointment request via their website because nobody answered the phone. The Docs site listed my insurance as accepted so I called the next day. The person that answered was rushed and impolite and said they didn't accept my insurance. I told them the site listed it as being accepted and they said that was too bad. This was a frustrating experience as i wasted 4 days attempting to contact the office
