I have been seeing Dr.Tataryn for a few years now and i always know what im getting with her. I feel like she doesnt run any later then any other doctor. She has discussed multiple plans with my partner and i as to how to go about our pregnancy. She goes over each plan, and answers questions. I had a very very painful hsg test recently at which none of it was her doing; i was crying and afterwards she came to ask if i was alright. She stayed until i got myself together and was great. If you go into her appointment going by everyone else's experiences then you are tainting your own experience.
Dr. Tataryn may seem scary and cold, but she gave me labiaplasty and its insane how awesome it turned out! Does her demeanor really reflect her job? Not really. Im very thankful she performed the surgery on me- not a single complication, healed good, and it looks great.
Dr Tataryn might be knowledgeable, but her bed side manner is awful. She does not address patient's concern or has little patience with questions, although she seems to be helpful and friendly only to people who work in the same health care field. Poor / inconsistent treatment planning and always very defensive.
This review is quite late but I feel I must leave a comment after the excellent treatment I received at the RAH from Dr. Tataryn. I was a second year nursing student when I was diagnosed incorrectly by several doctors regarding a large pelvic mass that continued growing over a period of six months. I was sent for multiple test over this time where nobody could decide not only what the mass was but which structure it was attached to or which side of my body it was on. I was in emerg 3 times for severe attacks of pain that would onset randomly and require large doses of narcotics that wouldn't even touch the pain. Dr. Tataryn (who people normally wait months-1 year to see) fit me in as a new patient and dedicated herself to figuring out what the mass was and removing it. That's not all! At first she told me I would have to come back in a couple of weeks to a month before she could fit me in for surgery but when I told her I was a nursing student who would be returning to school in 9 days and couldn't afford to miss labs and clinical, she told me "nurses are very important" and kept me in the hospital so she could fit me in as an emergency case 3 days later. Yes, Dr. Tataryn is abrupt and busy but there is a reason people are willing to wait for her. Dr. Tataryn is very thorough and knowledgeable. Her colleagues speak extremely highly of her. The nurses on the surgical unit all told me they would choose her as their doctor and wait a year to see her if they needed gyne surgery. My incisions healed well with no infection and recovery was minimal to the point that I was back at school the next week. I would recommend this doctor to anyone, just be patient with her abrupt personality, she means well :)
I went to her for fertility inquiries and she was very rude and disrespectful
to me. She pretty much said I am too fat to have a baby. If she would of taken three seconds to read my file and ask me questions, then she would know that my weight gain is due to my medication and I can't go off that medication. She made it seem like it was a very simple thing to loose weight, and I imagine for her it was an easy thing to do since she is maybe a size 3. She really would not even help me in any ways. I will be asking to see a different doctor.
Dr. Tataryn is my doctor at the Edmonton Fertility Clinic and she is a great doctor. She knows her stuff and is very dedicated to those who are dedicated to achieving a pregnancy. She is not going to sugar coat anything but if you can't hear the truth when you are doing infertility treatments, maybe its something you don't want to continue. I would much rather have the truth then have false hope about something that is already very stressful and an emotional rollercoaster. I would recommend her to anyone and I am very happy she is my doctor.
Dr. Tataryn handled my surgery professionally and kindly while making sure I was completely aware of what exactly was going to be done. I see her on a regular basis and am never displeased with her staff nor her bedside manner. Some people have complained about wait times, but I feel that is to be expected when dealing with deliveries, and I would much rather have my physician take their time with patients if necessary than to rush appointments simply because the time allotted is up.
Dr. Tataryn is always late, you are held hostage in waiting rooms knowing that if you decide to leave you will not get an appointment for months. The nursing staff does not notify you that she is late, you have to hunt them down to get this information. If I am waiting in a room with my pants off for an hour please come talk to me so that I can make a phone call/pee/top up the parking meter for another 3 hours. I have yet to get an appointment on time from the RF clinic. Dr. Tataryn does not like to be asked questions and gives you very little of her time. Staff does not actually answer the phone, and are often quite rude. Follow up appointments are booked 3 months down the road. I appreciate that she has a business like manner but she obviously is trying to do to much and the patients are not getting the care they deserve.
This review is long over due. I was a patient of Dr. Tataryn's 4 and a half years ago, and because of her my son and I both lived to tell the story. I was airlifted to the RA with a very rare condition in my pregnancy. I was high risk, on strict bed rest and was terrified to deliver. Dr. T's tell-it-like-it-is personality gave me and my husband a clear picture of what was to come. There was no candy coating it, and in the end no suprises. When after I delivered, I contracted a virus that almost killed me, her fast action saved my life. You may not think she is rainbows and sunshine, but the lady is amazing at what she does.
