“It is a privilege to provide compassionate care to our patients,” says Dr. Leo Taiberg, a critical care physician at Cancer Treatment Centers of America® (CTCA) at Midwestern Regional Medical Center (Midwestern).
Dr. Taiberg knew he wanted to be a doctor since he was a child shadowing his father, who was also a doctor. He completed a medical degree at the Medical Institute of Tashkent in Uzbekistan in 1989. He then completed an internal medicine internship at the University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center in Oklahoma City, followed by an internal medicine residency at Resurrection/Westlake Hospital in Melrose Park, Illinois. Dr. Taiberg completed a critical care medicine fellowship at Rush University Medical Center/Cook County Hospital in Chicago.
After completing his fellowship, Dr. Taiberg managed the medical/surgical intensive care unit in a large teaching hospital in Chicago. During this time, Dr. Taiberg also served as an intensivist for a 24-hour, in-house critical care program at a 36-bed intensive care unit. He joined CTCA® at Midwestern in 2014.
During his training, Dr. Taiberg was also involved in clinical research. He has presented his research at medical conferences and published studies in prominent journals.
Dr. Taiberg is board certified in internal medicine and critical care medicine by the American Board of Internal Medicine, and board certified in neurocritical care medicine from the United Council for Neurologic Subspecialities (UCNS). He is a member of the Society of Critical Care Medicine, the Neurocritical Care Society and the European Society of Intensive Care Medicine. He is certified by the American Heart Association and the American Stroke Association.
At CTCA, Dr. Taiberg provides critical care support for patients. His focus is on providing compassionate and patient-centered medical care.
When he is not at CTCA, Dr. Taiberg enjoys reading, skiing and spending time with his family and German shepherd.
