She was great, asked me all sorts of helpful questions, she really cares about her patients.
Great provider.
Best healthcare I’ve EVER had!
She is patient and thorough and asks whether I am comfortable with our care plan and if I have other concerns before we finish the visit. She’s also friendly and makes me feel comfortable as a queer person.
Great and caring physician.
The check in process is easy and the people are very nice. My doctor was wonderful. She listened to me, let me start where I needed to start and asked permission to do certain things. That was new, and felt nice.
Provider consistently forgets to put in prior auth for needed maintenance medications when asked. Provider reluctant to investigate symptoms negatively impacting quality of life and causing occupational disability. Provider failed to disclose all blood test types she ordered when specifically asked in a previous visit. Provider submitted Psych Referral for Anxiety when I did not self report that symptom and already have psychiatric care from another provider.
She is very nice and easy to talk to, I really like working with her.
Dr. Tabaka is so kind!
She is a great provider and listens well. She asks great followup questions and is interested in how I am doing overall, not just what I am seeing her for. She is kind and respectful and I feel like she cares.

Great service and doctor
Great experience
She is the only reason I put up with the numerous problems I encounter frequently with Stamford
Even while pressed for time Dr. Tabaka asks questions and listens.
There are no outstanding issues but I do not know her well enough. Usually I don not like to make recommendation to people unless I know a doctor very well.
Dr. Tabaka and her staff were very welcoming and helped to make my appointment an enjoyable experience.
Excellent service
I was initially examined by a medical student before the doctor came in after consulting with the medical student. It would have be nice if there was an indication that I would be seen by a medical student at the time when I scheduled the appointment (not when I was actually at the appointment). Also, I specifically chose a female doctor. I would have preferred not seen by the male medical student.
Listened well, understood issue, helpful recommendations.
Dr. Tabaka is an excellent doctor. I would definitely recommend her. She has been great with helping making the right treatment decision.

I don't have the proper words to explain how much I appreciate Dr tobacco's care. She was personable, friendly, professional, allied my fears about testing and got to the bottom of a debilitating condition and help resolve it. I highly recommend her.
She seems great! Looking forward to having her as my GP
She was late to the visit, had not looked over my test results prior to the call so I had to sit a watch her read them while I was on the call. She seemed misinformed about my medical history and not very interested in addressing my concerns or even providing care. It was a disappointing experience and I was left with more questions than answers
I love Dr. Tabaka
She was great. Listened to what I had to say.
It was my first time meeting Meg Tabaka. She was very easy to communicate with and I felt a positive connection with her. Her questions were relevant and thorough, and she answered all my questions. It is always a relief to have a good, first meeting with a doctor. I look forward to working with her in the future.
She was excellent as always

I truly enjoyed meeting Dr. Tabaka. Very friendly, very personable and very easy to talk to.
Excellent overall. Caring. Friendly. Knowledgeable.
Thanks for the all the suggestions, Dr. Tabaka!
She is the best of what a client can hope to receive from a doctor. Have youngsters shadow her appointments. She kept time and explicitly let me know she was doing that (i.e. "looking at the time, I have about 5 min left. Is there anything priority?); she actively listened, initially providing me the opportunity to make a choice and also provided an opinion when I asked her for one; she acknowledged what I shared and validated its truth; she clearly commanded expertise in medicine while also demonstrating a trust that I'm an expert in my own body. She was very welcoming to me sharing things about the medical system, medicine, etc. that I knew from experience and me being an active participant in my health. She acted like a thought partner rather than an all knowing god or paternalizing professional who prefers passive patients and victim-making behavioral patterns.
She is very nice, caring about her patient.
