I cannot recommend Dr. Tauber more highly. I am so happy that I chose him. Wonderful results. He is a complete professional as well as considerate and kind. Lori, his assistant, made scheduling and getting picky questions answered a breeze. All in all, a great experience.
Dr. Tauber was very thorough, professional, polite and personable. He answered all of my questions and made me feel comfortable through the entire process. The entire staff was very nice and remembered my name after the first time meeting me. I’m 2 month post op and couldn’t be more happy with my results.
I am absolutely thrilled with the results of my surgery. I was nervous that I might look like I had plastic surgery: stretched or different looking. My results were natural and so lovely; I got back my younger self. Dr. Tauber is the best.
Very professional, explained each step of the procedure. Would recommend them to my friends.
Dr. Tauber is the man. TLDR; got Gyno surgery and he did a great job, and he really helped my confidence. 5 stars and I mean it.I’m a college aged dude and I had some serious issues with Gyno, mostly in part from genetics. Coming off the initial lockdowns and lack of a gym it only worsened my look and self esteem. In July 2021 I got Gyno surgery, and it was the best choice I ever took. He literally unlocked the door for more opportunities, I got so much confidence and self worth from the surgery. That in combination with it giving me a reason to get back in the gym has made my body image issues of past go away. The surgery was precise, and the shape was solid. I flex in the mirror now and I actually look like a man now, which for the last 2 decades I could not experience. Over the course of the last 6 months of healing he stayed in touch to help me with any issues I had such as itching, stitches, and what I can or can’t do. He’s super respectful, understanding too. He took the weight off my chest, pun intended.Highly recommend his services if you were in my case. Just saying, summer 2022 is about to be crazy good, finally gonna be able to hit the beach and not have to worry about how I look. Thank you everyone at DeLuca plastic surgery and Dr. Tauber.
I had a dream for several years of getting a mommy makeover. This year I finally DID it! I was referred to Dr. Tauber, and was so happy for doing so. His office and staff were impeccable !! Upon meeting Dr. Tauber for my consult, he put me at ease at the start. He explained every aspect of the procedures with confidence and experience. I was having, breast augmentation, LIPO and tummy tuck. I was aware of all the pro's and cons of recovery. I was NOT expecting this after surgery,,, NO PAIN !! I am not joking, I had all the strongest pain meds at my disposal after hearing about the pain I was to expect. After surgery, I was up and walking ( yes very hunchback tho) , I stayed overnight at a nearby hotel since I was to see Dr. Tauber in the AM. Aside from the post op anesthesia wooziness and cotton mouth, I was FINE! I took the pain meds as a pre-caution. After day 2 I did not use any pain meds, not even tylenol. When I say there was no pain, I meant it. There was "discomfort" sutures, waist binder, tightness, and LORD do not cough or sneeze. I slept much and was sure to walk many laps around my living room. It is now week 4 and the results are amazing. My breast scars are healing nicely, my stomach is flat as a board. I am down at least a pant size if not more, and there is much swelling to go down. All in all, I am so happy with my makeover from Dr. Tauber, and highly recommend him.
Dr Tauber is absolutely amazing.I had a bad experience prior to finding him and he seriously changed my life!I am so upset that I did not choose him from the start - but all I can say for people who are looking to get any work done - he is your guy.Pays very good attention to detail.
Dr. Tauber is so professional, knowledgeable, and has the best bedside manner . I got a mommy makeover and I am so happy with the results . I had minimal pain. The scars are fresh but look great. Best surgeon ever. I knew he was in the building without seeing him because I always heard him laugh and the morning of my surgery he was singing . I said to the nurse there is my doctor. I would recommend him hands down.
Dr. Tauber is awesome! So personable and answers questions openly and honestly. I felt so comfortable with him, this being my first surgery. I love how my surgery turned out and would 100% recommend him to anyone!
I am Dr Tauber patient…. I AM EXTREMELY HAPPY/ AND SATISFIED… with the results of my surgery. He performed a BBL and so far my results are FABULOUS…!!! thank you to all of his staff for being so gentle and kind… I HIGHLY RECOMMEND anyone that is looking for a sophisticated and highly qualified plastic surgeon to make your call/ conciliation with DR. Tauber… HE WILL TAKE GOOD CARE OF YOU!!!!
Dr. Tauber and the Deluca Plastic Surgery staff were amazing throughout the entire process. They were professional, answered all my questions, and were transparent about every step for both the procedure and administrative items. I recommend Dr. Tauber without reservation, his expertise is above and beyond. He provided the best possible outcome and exceeded my expectations. Highly recommend!
Dr Tauber is a very kind , thoughtful and humorous man. It's not easy as a woman of a certain age to seek out plastic surgery. However Dr Tauber was kind and supportive of my decision. I just had my last follow-up visit from a surgery that was a year ago. He had me come back for follow-ups all year long so he could watch my progress and make adjustments to the area as needed. I couldn't recommend him enough for any woman looking to make changes and feeling heard and supported.
I suffered a bad fall in 2020 running with my dog and required stitches in my face. While recovering, I visited Dr. Tauber every 2 months during the added stress of the pandemic. He was always kind and professional, saying to just give things time, and that I was healing nicely. He never tried to encourage costly surgery by any means, just encouraged scar creams and sunscreen. Finally after a year, he performed a minor scar revision and I couldn't be more pleased. Besides some residual pink skin that fades daily, I am more than pleased. I would highly recommend Dr. Tauber to anyone in need of a plastic surgeon.
I am/was very happy with Dr. Tauber. I felt he is kind, non-judgmental and a consummate professional who takes pride in work well done. He is open for questions and offers easy-to-understand answers. I highly recommend him to anyone who is thinking about any kind of plastic surgery.
Wonderful Dr. I had a cyst removed from along my bottom lip line. You can’t tell I was cut below the lip. It healed without any problems. He did an outstanding job. I would recommend if you are looking for a good surgeon with a great sense of humor.
Dr. Tauber is awesome. Professional, personable, fun and kind. I'm glad I chose him to do my procedure.
Nearly ten years ago, I lost a large amount of weight. I worked so hard to lose the weight yet the appearance of my thighs post-weight loss depleted my self-esteem. Dr. Tauber demonstrated expertise, honesty in what could realistically be done, kindness, and understanding. I went into his office seeking input on a possible thigh lift, and he recommended liposuction instead. He was absolutely correct in his recommendation. Dr. Tauber did a phenomenal job on my thighs. They are contoured so nicely now. I am incredibly grateful for Dr. Tauber's artistry and talent. For the first time in nearly ten years, I am going to proudly wear shorts and a bathing suit!
Dr. Tauber is very professional with great follow up care, great office staff and great results. I would definitely recommend this office and Dr. Tauber.
Dr. Tauber is an amazing doctor. From day one of my consultation, Dr. Tauber took the time to listen to my concerns about a deformity I had since birth that affected me throughout my life. I am 49 years old. Dr. Tauber explained the details of the procedure I was seeking very thoroughly. Dr. Tauber also brought me in for a 2nd visit prior to my procedure and went over everything with me one more time. On the day of the procedure, he stopped in to talk to me beforehand to go over any questions or concerns I had plus he had me come back the day after the procedure for a post op follow up visit to examine me and make sure I was feeling well and advised me to call his office if I had any other questions or concerns. Dr. Tauber also advised me to follow up with him again in 6 weeks to complete one more final exam. I couldn't have asked for a better doctor who followed through with me from day 1. He made me feel comfortable from the beginning and he gave me my self esteem back. I also want to thank his staff who were just as courteous and professional. I have thought of a few other procedures I would like and Dr. Tauber is definitely my doctor of choice. Thank you Dr. Tauber and team!
Dr. Tauber is fantastic! I had a weir incision on my nose to decrease nostril width and it came out beautiful! I am so thrilled with the results. My nose looks incredible! The lines are softer, my whole face looks better, more balanced. Dr. Tauber made the whole surgical experience pain free, quick and easy. Most importantly I have the nose I always wanted. I recommend Dr. Tauber and Deluca Plastic Surgery to anyone who wants to enhance their appearance. The quality and expertise is top notch!
First off walking into the building was amazing. They were so welcoming, and were so kind. Once I met Dr. Tauber, he was extremely funny, and very focused on me as a patient and what I needed. He helped me go about my breast reduction in such a stress-free and exciting way! Surgery went so so well and I was completely healed in about 6 weeks. My scars are healing very well and very fast, and I wouldn't have wanted another surgeon to do my breast reduction:) It was a very smooth process, and all staff was very willing to help me in any way that they could.
Extremely satisfied with my surgery and experience with Dr. Tauber. He made what can be a very awkward and stressful process very easy and comfortable. He is knowledgeable, personable and professional. My results are very natural looking and scarring is minimal. I highly recommend using Dr. Tauber and Deluca Plastic Surgery for all your cosmetic surgery needs!
Dr. Tauber was great! He repaired my torn earlobe beautifully. You need a magnifying glass to see any indication it has been repaired. At the same time he left a small ball shaped earring in my ear so I wouldn't have to go through waiting 6 weeks for the repair to heal, then another 6 weeks for a new piercing to heal. It was all done at the same time! Wonderful!!! I couldn't be happier with the outcome. I highly recommend Dr. Tauber!
Dermatologist recommended Dr. Tauber for skin lesion removal on my eyelid. I saw him for 3 appointments - a consultation, surgery, and stitches removal. Dr. Tauber and staff were great!
Dr. Tauber is fantastic...I've been seeing him for a little over 2 years for all my aging "maintenance" 🙂 ...He is conservative in what he recommends so that you leave the office looking great with just enough to notice a difference...Highly Recommend
Amazing experience, Dr. Tauber took the time to listen to my goals, offered suggests and explained in detail. Extremely happy with that I took his suggestions. Highly recommend Dr. Tauber for great results
I had a wonderful experience with Dr. Tauber and his staff. Everything was quick, very easy and all my questions were answered!
I have nothing but wonderful words for this office! The office is extremely clean and the staff is professional and friendly. Dr Tauber is a great doctor and has done my Botox for me and I am always very pleased with my appointments
Dr Tauber is amazing!! Knowledgeable and super friendly!
Dr Tauber made my entire process as smooth as it could be. Zero hassle, great service and my nose looks great!
There is a fine line where Aesthetics and Functionality meet, if your looking for a doctor who has mastered both, then look no further than Dr. Tauber. This is the best investment I have made for my health, I sleep through the night every night, waking up refreshed, ready to start the day everyday.
Breast reduction was something I'd thought about for 20+ years. Finally decided to do it and on recommendation of a friend I chose DeLucca Plastic Surgery. Dr. Tauber was easy to talk to and explained everything thoroughly. He suggested a breast lift with liposuction and that's what I had done. I am so glad I had the procedure and would recommend Dr. Tauber to anyone.
I am 58 year old woman with a young spirit. When I looked in the mirror I saw dropping eyelids, jowls and a turkey-like neck. I wanted my face to capture my youthful spirit without having that "phony done look." After consultations with several plastic surgeons, I choose Dr. Tauber. During my consultation he listened and addressed my concerns. He was incredibly knowledgable, professional and compassionate. I didn't feel as though he was selling me and talking at me. I choose to have upper and lower eyelid surgery and a modified neck lift. I am now two weeks post op and couldn't be happier. Dr. Tauber exceeded my expectation!!! My face now represents my inner spirit and it's only been two weeks post-op. I have my eyelids back, my jowls are gone and no more turkey-neck. Dr. Tauber is a skilled, compassionate and meticulous surgeon.In addition, his support staff is both professional and compassionate. Lori, his nurse is wonderful. She worked diligently to arrange the logistics of my operations. Lori also immediately addressed any pre and post op questions I had.From the moment I walked into Deluca Plastic Surgery I was always greeted with a smile and made to feel at ease. The long distance I drove to his office was worth it.I am grateful for Dr. Tauber's surgical skills. He helped me to look as good outside, as I feel inside!! Thanks again and be well.
He was fantastic very happy i went with him!
Professional and listens to his patients concerns. He corrected my husbands deviated septum and enabled him to breathe through his nose again after 10 years not doing so. So happy with the results, his nose looks wonderful.
From start to finish the procedure I had with Dr Tauber was outstanding! Results were just what I wanted. Highly recommend him.
From the moment I walked into Dr.Tauber's office i felt confident about my decision to go forward with my surgery . Dr.Tauber exudes competence and confidence. Every appointment I had was positive and productive. The results of my surgery exceeded my expectations in every possible way.
Very happy with results and professional service received. Highly recommended.
Very friendly atmosphere, from reception to nurses and doctors. Dr Tauber is the best...
Very happy with my experience with Dr. Tauber. He explained everything thoroughly and his technique made me not feel a single thing! I got lip injections with Restalyne and am so impressed with my results. Granted I got them a day ago and I am still swollen but I am loving the look I am getting. Highly recommend him and Delucas Plastic Surgery. The atmosphere was great and it was super clean. Extremely pleased!
Removed a lipoma from my head. Super professional and felt comfortable. Quick procedure. 10 days stitches out and also told me lab results. Highly recommend!!
