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.
