Dr. Robert Tang-Wai's Ratings
I went to Dr. Tang-Wai 30 years ago, because there were noother options for me. I was a pre-teen, and he horrified my mother and terrified me. My main memories are of a rude, mean man who I couldn't understand. What I do know for sure is that I spent ten years diagnosed as idiopathic epilepsy and therefore was never under control. As soon as I got a new neurologist in another city, I was diagnosed correctly, my meds were changed, and I was finally under control. I was not impressed, but moved on. This week I learned my niece has to see a neurologist. I was horrified that she might have to go to him as well, but thankfully she's driving past Brandon straight to a specialist in Winnipeg. Dr Tang-Wai not only has well documented bad manners, he's a poor diagnostician in my experience.
Doctor Tang-Wai was very professional. I had a little trouble at times understanding him but if I did, he repeated the question and I would understand the second time. When I first entered his office he asked me to remove my hat and shoes which was not a problem for me. He did his testing including the shocking and poking which did not hurt at all. The poking did not break skin or draw blood and I have a massage shocker and the shocking was no worse than that. We even had a bit of a visit afterwards. I have gone to far worse specialists than Dr. Tang-Wai. I have nothing bad to say about this man. Thankyou
My appointment with him was THE WORST doctor's apt I've ever had and I have never met a more rude individual. Office is cluttered and dirty. He was extremely condescending while I was trying to explain to him my symptoms. He took every chance he had to cut me off or make me feel stupid. I am a tough person and I was choking back tears my whole visit. I d on't care who you are or how good of Doctor you are you have to make your patients feel at ease and comfortable. Horrific. The only thing that made me feel okay is realizing be treats his wife the exact same way.
This Dr. is the most rude and disrespectful human being(let alone doctor) I have ever met. I was called a liar to my face on numerous occasions(until hospital records were checked, proving him wrong) and once he found out the actual story he refused to even apologize. Let's just say his bed side manner is lacking(or non existing). If I had any advice for this man, it would be to find a job in the medical field where patient interaction is not required.
I have been seeing Dr. Tang Wai for almost a year. I was diagnosed with a rare neurological disorder. After reading the reivews on here I was terrified to see Dr. Tang Wai, I was 21 and thought he was going to make me cry. However, after seeing him for the first time I my attitude changed. Since, than I see Dr. Tang Wai every 6 weeks to 2 months and have been extremely impressed with him. He remembers who i am and we end up having a chat after my appointment. He has met my mom and sister and was extremely nice. I do not have a bad a thing to say about this man. He is wonderful and I owe my good health to him. Because of him I did not have to get surgery!
He said he was going to poke me with a pin. That he grabbed from an open container on his desk. I asked if it was clean and he got upset. Then poked me without sterilizing the needle. Even tattoo artists are cleaner than that.
I have never before, met a doctor, let alone another human being, who constantly tells you to "Shut Up". His instruction to you is "I ask question, you answer 'yes' or 'no'. How on earth can he make an informed decision when he does not have the proper information. He also stated that he "no need MRI- I tell you what problem be!" I phoned the College of Physicians/Surgeons to see how one "reports" a Doctor. I was told,"You have to put it in writing", which I did. That was Nov'11. As of today , we are still "dancing" back and forth. The last(3rd) letter I rec'd from them had a copy of Dr. Tang Wai's response (6 pages of his "defense"). Apparently I was the one who kept telling him to "Shut Up",wouldn't let him talk,etc.etc. I live on a cattle farm and have never seen a pile of "bull" this high!
My apt with this so called doctor was the worse experience in my life. Never have I left a doctors apt in tears until meeting this quack. We were suprised when we pulled up t his "clinic" as it was a very old run down shack in the middle of no where. When we entered we were greated with a stale stench. The receptioist ( wife ) was rude and snapped out questions and told us to wait. The waiting room was filled with dirty... And i mean VERY dirty chairs, pictures falling off wallls, carpet held together with duct tape. The boxes surounding the entire building, files, papers everywhere.He directed me to sit, wouldn't look at me he would ask a question, I would answer if he didn't like it he would ask over and over.he poked the tips of my fingers with a random safety pin on his desk. While sitting on the table, he crawled under it whacking something with reflex stick, pushing my legs away.The shock test was unbearable, wife snapped and pulled my arm. One was enouph,I walked out crying
I read these reviews and was terrified to go. I was extremely relieved once I saw him. Dr. Tang-Wai was professional friendly, and thorough. I had no trouble understanding him and although he did the carpal tunnel tests, there was no real pain.
I see it like this. Dr. Tang-Wai did his job. His office may not be as clean and tidy as it should be. Yes it is hard to understand him at times. He was friendly towards me and treated me very well. He is the kind of man who wants you to answer his questions with simple answers. He doesn't want your life story. As he told me his job is to find out what's wrong with you, not to find out what is causeing it. That is up to your family doctor to find out. He recommends to your family doctor what sould be done to correct your problems. That's what he gets paid for and that's the kind of treatment he gives. If you want a doctor that lets you lie on a couch and to tell your life's woes to then go see a phycologist. A neurologist's primary job responsibility is to diagnose and treat nervous system disorders. Thank You...A Satisfied Patient.
