Dr.Tabor was very helpful and explained a lot. Toe nail procedure was quick. The only thing that could have been improved was the long wait time in the actual room (not waiting room). From start to finish appointment was over anhour. However, overrall experience was very good. I would be happy to recommend location and Dr.Tabor

The only reason that I didn't give the wait time 5 stars is because I was 30 minutes late so naturally he couldn't see me right away.

THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!!! Not only did you put me back in my heels again. I have no pain and I can exercise and move my big toe. Most importantly, you taught me a valuable lesson in understanding howthe foot heals and the need not to have surgery again. Thanks!!!

In my opinion, Dr. Tabor is an excellent podiatrist. In years past, he addressed and attended to my foot problems that other podiatrists would only partially resolve. He is thorough in his medical analysis and knows how to treat foot issues.
