What People Say About Dr. Ricardo Taboada, MD

Good Lord, one of the rudest, most arrogant, unfeeling, rim headed doctors I have ever met. He was so disrespectful & wouldn’t even introduce himself, nor shake my hand. His medical advice made me so ill, it borders on malpractice. Run the other way from this man who never should interact with patients. And should never interact with animals.

Rude, disrespectful, incompassionate, and failure to the Hippocratic Oath. Discharging patients who leave reviews that he doesn't approve of? disgrace.

Dr. Toboada is up to date on all the cutting edge procedures. Over the past 2 years he's been professional and understanding. He's helped me get rid of my back pain and now I look forward to getting up every day.

I had different experiences with Pain Management doctors over 10 years or so. Among all of them, from the most prestigious institutions of Houston and Boston, Dr. Taboada is the best. My experience with him, treating my lower back problem, as well as with my cervical problem more recently, it's just being great. I highly recommended Dr. Taboada and all his team to everybody with back or spine problems. He knows what he is doing, he's very gentle and clear explaining everything.

Dr. Taoboda seems skilled at both injection therapy for pain, and pharmacologic therapy. I had some luck with Calmare at the Pain Treatment Center.

I have been his patient for 2 years -- once in awhile he seems interested and is trying to help. More often, though, he figuratively shrugs his shoulders and says "we only have a limited number of tools..." Today in fact, I was looking forward to meeting with him, but as soon as I began talking he told me he'd have to review my whole file and that this was only a 15 minute appointment -- and he didn't have enough time. So he made me another 30 minute appointment a month away. Weird.
