BOCA RATON, FL – April 25, 2017 – For two urologists at Boca Regional, the old adage “like father,
like son” rings true. The Hospital has appointed Marc E. Taub, MD,
FACS, and his son, David Taub, MD, MBA, FACS, to the staff of the Hospital’s
Eugene M. & Christine E. Lynn Cancer Institute and BocaCare® physician network.
For over 30 years, Dr. Marc Taub had practiced at Boca Raton Regional Hospital.
In 2013, he joined his son on the medical staff at Holy Cross Hospital
in Ft. Lauderdale. Now, this father and son duo are caring for patients
at Boca Regional and its Lynn Cancer Institute.
“The field of urology has evolved dramatically over recent years,”
said Dr. Marc Taub. “Having two generations work together under
one practice has allowed for us to utilize our individual skill sets to
complement and build off of one another.”
Offices right across the hall from each other allow the two to share cases
or the latest clinical advances on a daily basis.
“With my father’s experience and my focus on robotic surgery
for prostate cancer, we present a great partnership that’s very
beneficial for our patients,” said Dr. David Taub.
“While genetics might guarantee us the same hair or eye color, still
not much can ensure that your child will have the same interests, let
alone follow the same career path as you,” said Dr. Marc Taub. “Working
with my son is a rare and very special opportunity.”
The significance of being the second Dr. Taub also holds a great deal of
honor for the younger of the pair.
“My father's legacy at Boca Raton Regional Hospital is enormous.
I have met nurses, physicians and patients who have known my father for
many years and deeply respect him,” said Dr. David Taub. “I
am proud to be able to maintain the reputation and positive impressions
that my father began decades ago.”
Dr. Marc Taub is a board-certified urologist. He attended Wayne State University
School of Medicine in Detroit, Michigan and performed his internship and
general surgery residency at St. Joseph Mercy Hospital in Ann Arbor, Michigan.
He performed his urology residency at the University of Michigan and is
a Diplomate of the American Board of Urology and a Fellow of the American
College of Surgeons.
Following in his father’s footsteps, Dr. David Taub also attended
medical school at Wayne State University School of Medicine. A board-certified
urologist, he performed his general surgery internship and urology residency
at the University of Michigan. He also received a Master of Business Administration
degree from the University of Michigan. He currently serves as Affiliate
Faculty at the University of Miami’s Miller School of Medicine Department
of Urology and is a Fellow of the American College of Surgeons.
