Ratings for Dr. Bannie L. Tabor
Dr. Tabor is the best there is. He knowledge and expertise are incomparable. He deals with tough pregnancies with compassion. Yes, we had to wait sometimes, but we had complete and total trust in his expertise and knew that you have to wait for the best.
Dr. Tabor is the very best you will find for a high risk pregnancy. I have had 6 miscarriages, and no other doctor could help me or figure out why. We traveled all over the US seeking out specialists. No one compares to him. He got my beautiful son here healthy and happy after 7 years of disappointments and loss. I'm now pregnant one year later with a baby girl. I would never see anyone else but him, or trust my life or my child's to anyone else. After a 20 hour very complicated labor, most docs would have panicked and done a c section, but he stayed by my side the entire night and watched every move me and baby made. He assured me that all was going to be fine and he would not let anything happen to me or our child. He was right. Yes, you will wait in his office. People come from all over the US to see him, and when other doctors are too afraid to continue care for a patient, he takes those cases on. So yes, you will wait. But I will wait for the proper care and diagnosis any day over a doc who whips you in and out like cattle. Yes, he Is a little quirky..you have to have a sense of humor to appreciate him. He is the best though, and I owe him BOTH of my babies that no other doctor could or would help me get here.
The staff are very unfriendly and cold. The front office are not efficient and needed to contact a few times before they could accomplish a simple task. The office environment is not calming or peaceful. I could feel the tension/stress in the office. They do not provide water bottles for patients nor seat covers in the bathroom. Dr. Tabor seems knowledgable and nice but the staff are not pleasant at all!
Horrible staff! Everyone except the sono tech was incredibly rude! I had an appointment and waited 3 hours in the waiting room to be seen. I was referred to him because of my accreta. I am so thankful I looked elsewhere and did not settle for him. When I asked questions about my condition he was very rude. When I asked about how he determines the delivery date he said "here's what will happen. I will give you a date, then you will want to go longer, that night you will come into the hospital hemorrhaging and I will have been out drinking and none of my partners will be able to help you because they aren't as skilled as I am." My jaw hit the floor who talks to someone like that. I went to Houston and I couldn't be happier I made the commute to get the care I needed for my serious situation. Oh and for fun if you don't pay your bill in full, they add a $5 charge each billing cycle until it is paid off. Wouldn't recommend him to care for my dog!
Amazing and humane are the only a few words i can use to describe Dr.Taber & his wonderful staff. After being looked at as a diagnosis code by insurance and denied a much needed procedure by both BCBS & MEDICAID Dr. Taber gave my family peace by excepting us as selfpay and performed a procedure that was medically necessary for my health. I went from 11weeks to 16weeks being turned down doctor after doctor after being told my son would only live 3 hrs after birth and they recommended to terminate. Once the insurance denied the doctors only answer was to continue a full pregancy and we bury our son. Dr. Taber saw the hurt we saw and gave us the parents the choice instead of insurance labeling us as just another abortion. Our son we loved and would have continued if it was Gods will, but it wasnt. A million thanks to Dr. Taber and his staff for keeping healthcare between the office and the patient and not letting insurance call the shots or make a decision for us!
He is an absolute genius! He is the only doctor who caught a genetic problem which would have been catastrophic had it gone untreated. Dr. Tabor IS the cutting edge. He doesn't wait for others, he is known throughout the country in his field as one of the best. If you have a high risk pregnancy, he is the man!
I saw Dr. Tabor because I was looking for a second opinion. I was informed that my pregnancy was possibly high risk. I suspected that my first doctor was misinforming me and misreading a level 2 sonogram. I was right. Dr. Tabor gave my the correct information and answers were thorough with any questions I had. I was informed he has a long wait time, but I got lucky and was able to schedule appt same day I was in contact with staff. He gave me peace of mind and I am thankful!
