How was your experience with the doctor?I have no issue with Dr Taubman, however her office team is disorganized and ridiculous. I have a long list of complaints of how they have given me misinformation or made my visit more stressful and laborious. I cant recommend this location or team

How was your experience with the doctor?I have been seeing Dr. Taubman for over two years. She is fantastic. Very knowledgeable and caring. On my most recent visit I had an inordinately long wait time, but I will still keep going back -- usually it doesn't take that long.

How was your experience with the doctor?Dr. Taubman is a bit blunt but that doesn't bother me as she's knowledgeable and listens to your concerns. Her nurse is awesome and the phlobotimist was totally sympathetic to my dislike of all things medical (You know how some people don't like the dentist? That's me at the doctor's office.) Where this practice falls apart are "the girls up front" (how everyone in the office refers to them. They handle all the referral paperwork and seem to specialize in sending you places the doctor doesn't want you to go or places you can't easily get to (like I don't have a car and they want to me to Secacus because it's only like 3 busses away). Or they give you info in languages you don't speak - like mental health info in Spanish or Portuguese because you could always use google translate or just call. You need to come back and speak to the doctor directly to get the right referral... or make sure you have the name in advance and then argue with the front office folks about which specialist you're supposed to see. Very unprofessional front office.

How was your experience with the doctor?I went to see Dr. Taubman a few times last year. She's actually my favorite primary care doctor ever. I recently moved, so it's unfortunate that I won't be able to continue to see her, but I am fortunate to have been under her care for a year. Very nice, extremely knowledgeable, and takes time to discuss and explain.

How was your experience with the doctor?I usually hate visiting doctors, but everyone at Dr. Taubman's office -- the receptionists, the nurses, and Dr. Taubman herself -- was great. Friendly, warm, and interested in actually solving my minor aches and pains. Plus. Dr. Taubman gave me some much-needed encouragement in my journey to quit smoking. A+ service, all around.

How was your experience with the doctor?The office was pretty crazy when I walked in, and the doctor was running behind, so I did have to wait a little. Despite the chaos, the front desk was organized, and both the nurse and doctor apologized and said it wasn't usually so busy. Dr. Taubman was attentive and not as rushed as other doctors I've seen, so overall I was satisfied. I'd see her again.

How was your experience with the doctor?I have no issues with the doctor as such as she conducted herself good. I have problem with the billing department of their practice. They always manipulate the bill to add more line items for different services that I didn't ask for, but they did and charged me a lot. As my insurance didn't cover that, I had to end up paying that amount. This is not the first time. It has happened more than once with me, my wife as well. Clearly understand all the service the doctor will do during your check-up and clearly indicate if you don't need any of them.

How was your experience with the doctor?I've only been once to see Dr. Taubman, but it was enough for me to know I'd made the right choice. She was friendly, knowledgeable and the office staff was very nice as well. I did not wait more than 5 minutes in the office before I was taken in, which was a welcome change from most Dr's offices. My husband has been to see her several times as well and is also very happy with her.

How was your experience with the doctor?I just did a basic annual physical so there's not much I can say about her. She is nice though & so were her staff, it was my first visit with her & she did try to get to know me. It's safe to say that she will now be my main doctor. I usually just hop around doctors, hoping to find the right one & she is :)

How was your experience with the doctor?The staff and doctor are wonderful. This particular visit, they were super busy and I waited about 10 minutes, but there's usually no wait at all—good scheduling. The staff is friendly and helpful. They go above and beyond what is required. Dr Taubman is professional and caring. She takes her time, listens, explains, and follows up. She is open to alternative medicine practices and suggests them appropriately. So glad to have found a good Primary Care Doc.

How was your experience with the doctor?I really enjoyed my visit. Dr. Taubman and the office staff were very friendly, and they have been with follow up questions by phone, as well. I recently moved to the area and originally went to the office so I could get a referral, and I plan to stick with Dr. Taubman as my primary care doctor. The in-office lab is a plus, too, because there is no separate trip to Quest required.

How was your experience with the doctor?Great office - very efficient, no wait time at all, and didn't just blindly throw antibiotics at me when I didn't need them. As someone who doesn't like to take medication for the sake of taking it, I really value a doctor who thinks in kind. Great bedside manner, very engaging, listened to everything I had to say. I'd definitely go back if I'm sick (hopefully not soon!) but even for regular physicals.

How was your experience with the doctor?I haven't seen a doctor in a while - I haven't had anything acute, but figured it was time to check in and also find a local doctor in JC. After great reviews here, I went to see Dr. Taubman. I was underwhelmed. I didn't feel like she asked me any questions, did only very routing physical checks, didn't probe any further. Granted I wasn't complaining about anything, but I felt the visit was very superficial. On top of that, it has been almost 3 weeks and I still haven't heard back with my blood work results (despite calling every other day or so to ask for a call back). If I need a simple prescription or simple exam / referral, I'll go back. Otherwise, I wasn't impressed.
