Ratings for Dr. Jonathan Tankel
Best doctor ever. Genuinely cares about the patient... Dr. Tankel knows his practice well. With a high risk pregnancy I can't imagine having seen another doctor. There is something special about this doctor, hard to find a physician that is as attentive, reassuring and invested in his patients. Will be ever grateful for Dr. Tankels care. Well worth the wait, Tankel is the one you want in the delivery room.
Doctor Tankel is a very kind person. He is so gentle and knowledgeable and respectful not just as a professional but also as a person. Although he's so experienced he is very humble. Even though he only bills for what he does he will never look at his watch or hurry you out. He is the best listener I know and always says the right thing that makes me feel good. He is so reassuring. I was so fortunate to have him follow me through 5 of my pregnancies and births but watch out...he will make you laugh so hard when you are in labour! Fortunate to those who are in his care. I would wait whatever to see him. Well worth it.
Worst experience of my life! Do NOT waste your time. I have never in my life felt so belittled, and criticized from someone who is supposed to be HELPING you. After waiting over an hour, and this is what I get! Unbelievably rude, obnoxious, stubborn, arrogant jerk. I waited over 6 months to see this "specialist." What a joke. Please save your time, and do yourself a favor by finding a different OBGYN. I hate the thought that anyone has to go through what I went through. All he tries to do is push birth control, and make a profit. He claimed I was wrong, when telling him MY symptoms. Absolute nightmare.
Dr Tankel is amazing. After having some serious health issues after being on the pill he helped get my health in order and make the right birth control for me. He answered every and all questions I had, he made me laugh every chance he got to ease my discomfort and tried to insert my IUD with as little discomfort as possible. He was a little late, according to appointment time, but he made up for it by giving me as much time as I needed. He has had to cancel appointments to deliver babies but they were rescheduled in a timely fashion. Highly recommend him.
Dr.Tankel is the best OBGYN I have ever met. I am SO THANKFUL my sister recommended him to me for my IUD. I have now made a public service announcement via Facebook for everyone to see him for their IUD's. No doubt he is probably an amazing baby doctor as well. I LOVE TANKEL!
Dr.Tankel is an acquired taste and that is putting it lightly. I saw him twice and determined that was more than enough. He is extremely prejudiced of certain religious individuals and does not have the ability to atleast keep it to himself. He was unfortunately argumentative and when questioned regarding his medical advice he failed to provide accurate and unbiased information. He originally was recommended to me by two other individuals thus my visits to him. But like I said he was not for me. If you are informed and do your research you will definitely not like Dr.Tankel and he will definitely not like you.
I have him around 1 year now, and he is a very good doctor. In our first appointment, by telling me the truth he disappointed me. But I realize afterward that knowing the truth is better than having false inspiration. I am very happy to have him as an obgyn, he is extremely funny, and make the conversation started, knowledgeable, AND extremely busy! As a result he make his points as fast as he can, that's the only problem. But I would recommend him for sure.
I agree with the previous comments, the receptionist is extremely rude. The waiting time is also pretty long but in my experience it is definitely worth the wait. I went to see Dr. Tankel for an IUD insertion. He was extremely helpful and answered all the questions I had. I mentioned I was having several infection-like symptoms for more than a year and despite many many tests my other doctor had not been able to figure out what I had or help me fix it. As soon as he heard my symptoms he told me he knew what I had (even before he did his physical examination). He prescribed me an ointment and I have been pain free for the first time in more than a year. When he did the physical examination he used his mirror to show me exactly what was going on that was causing my discomforts. Although this might make some people feel uncomfortable (I don't think it should because it is your own body you are looking at), I loved that he explained in so much detail why I had gone through so much discomfort for so long. The IUD insertion went great. I was lucky that I barely had any pain, however, I really appreciated that he warned me it could be painful and described what an abnormal reaction to it would look like. Since I was a bit nervous he told me I could call him at any time if I experienced any intense bleeding or pain. I would recommend him to anyone!
After reading the reviews for Dr. Tankel, I'm beginning to think that he might be a bit of an acquired taste. I saw Dr. Tankel a few months ago for an IUD insertion, and was warned beforehand to expect at least an hour wait. I wasn't too concerned and just brought a textbook to read and the wait was about as long as expected. Personally, I am very anxious and had never been to a gynecologist before, so I rather liked that he did most of the talking and even joking because it made me forget some of my anxieties and relax a bit more. He answered the few questions I had, but I had already done a lot of research online beforehand. He works quickly and efficiently, which I REALLY appreciate because I would not enjoy having a speculum inside me for longer than absolutely necessary, and I'm sure most would feel the same. He also always offers to let you see what hes doing or seeing, which I know might be cool for some but definitely wasn't for me! Yes, you will probably have to wait for a while, just bring a book or make an appointment for early in the morning. He's very straight forward, get's straight to the point and is very reassuring.
