Ratings for Dr. Mark J. Tatara
I began seeing Dr Tatara after a previous doctor seemed disinterested in my health and wellbeing. Dr. Tatara listened extremely well and took notes well enough that he was always completely up to speed on our progress and past discussions. I felt like he was actively trying to make sure I was healthy. Good doctor.
Only wait 5-10 minutes in the waiting room or examine room. Past history with doctors have waited up to an hour to see. Is extremely knowledgeable and doesn't pretend to know everything. I have total confidence in the treatment he recommends.
Seems very knowledgeable. Listens and considers my feelings and input regarding health care options. If he doesn't have the answer to a question, he will admit it and find the answer. Very friendly and personable nurses, but the most difficult nursing staff to contact by phone of any doctor we've been to in 40 years.
Dr. Tatara has been my GP for ten years. The last couple years I've noticed he types on the computer more than he spends actually examing me. His connection to the specialists he refers to doesn't seem strong. If he referred me, he should expect the specialist to keep him in the loop. He asked me what the specialists and radiologist report said. He writes my perscriptions and looks at what I want him to. Maybe that's because we've been together so long.
