    Great doctor! My shoulder is better than ever. Full mobility back and finally back to myself. Very thankful to dr. Tabershaw. Would highly recommend!
    in New York, NY |
    I had a great experience with Dr. Tabershaw. He did not try to immediately operate like other orthopedists i've seen, but instead had me start out with physical therapy which wound up being successful. As an athlete I've had many injuries and just wish i found him sooner. My knee feels great and overall my experience was a really positive one. I will definitely be sticking with him.
    Simply the best! He explained everything thoroughly and had a great bedside manner.

    I broke my foot just before Christmas and he was kind enough to get me into the office right away. He explained everything to me, even though I was hoping for better news, he told be the truth. He was thorough and showed me my x-rays and explained how long I was going to be tied up in a cast. I would most definitely recommend Dr. Tabershaw!
