I saw Dr. Tankel at UHC, so I can't really comment on his staff. I went for an IUD insertion and I really liked him. I found his personable joking manner helpful for a procedure I was pretty anxious for. He did not give as much information as he could have regarding what to expect for the IUD, but he did know I was in health care and had researched it myself, so I'm not sure if this was his norm. He was very helpful with questions I had. Procedure was quick and less painful than expected, considering I was a bit of a complicated insertion. I didn't feel rushed during the appointment, which I love. His wait times can be unpredictable though. I absolutely do not blame him for this, but if you are someone who doesn't like waiting or does not have that flexibility, he may not be the doctor for you.

Very rude receptionist. She is always rude whether you are talking over the phone or face to face. Yes, she never calls when Dr. Tankel is running late for appointments. I was also there for almost half an hour than she let me know that Dr. Tankle is running late. While I was there she was talking to this new mom, she was making faces so many time and so badly. That was so rude. I felt so bad for this new mom.

Rude receptionist, No one calls to confirm appointment and I pay $12 for 2 hour parking. I booked a day off and I come into the appointment, there's a piece of paper on the desk to write my name down and when my appointment is. Then about 45 mins the receptionist calls me over to tell me he's 3 hours behind so did you want to rebook? Seriously?? No call or anything to tell me prior. Disappointed never coming back.

Incredibly rude receptionist, don't know why she is kept on. I had my IUD inserted and it was the most painful thing I have ever experienced. His bedside manner was courteous and light hearted and I appreciated the quirky jokes. Insertion was done FAST even though there was a problem with my cervix. I trust his experience and expertise even though I did feel like he could have checked in on me better afterwards. I could hardly formulate words and I felt slightly abandoned after the procedure was finished. His love of IUDs worries me because I've noticed some uncomfortable changes and I feel that he would try to tell me it's an adjustment period or that I'm wrong. I don't think he would listen to me and trust my own judgement and experience of my body.

Very knowledgable but always late and therefore too rushed to answer questions. I do however like his no-nonsense approach.

My first impressions of visiting Dr. Tankel for an IUD insertion were wrought with anxiety, as his receptionist had practically barked my appointment at me, and provided absolutely no notification of what I would or would not need to do/bring beforehand. I did a review search for the doctor, and read enough positive accounts that I thought it would turn out quite well. Not so. First of all, he walked in on me while I was still changing without a courtesy knock. When he finally returned, he spoke a mile a minute throwing information at me that I couldn’t possibly keep track of, interspersed with what I’m assuming he thought were funny jokes. While I appreciate deadpan humour, I didn’t feel that it was appropriate prior to what was going to be a painful procedure. I knew what to expect with an IUD insertion, as I had had one the previous year (copper, which doubled the length of my period and gave me mad cramping each month for 7 months before I had it removed). He was so blasé about the whole procedure, telling me how easy it would be and how I don't need to pay attention to any of the information pamphlets. However, the procedure did not go so well. Not only did he have me in a sitting position, with no attempt to relax my body before the insertion, but he realized after 3 very very painful attempts that the IUD wouldn’t go in. He then promptly left the room (with no sense of privacy to me and my lady bits laying open and visible on the table). As soon as he was done, he promptly informed me he had other patients to see and left me sweating and in shock on the table, still in a splayed sitting position, with the stool behind the table so I wasn’t actually able to get off (I’m fairly short). So while I appreciate that his bedside manners are charming to some, he really did a poor job at taking care of me as a patient. I would certainly not choose to have him as a regular doctor in my life, despite his generally personable character.

Took me about 2 months to get in but well worth the wait! He was relaxed and joked during the appointment made me feel super comfortable during an IUD insertion. Even let me watch with a mirror to see the whole process. Highly recommend!!!

The worst OBGYN! Couldn't get pregnant for 12 months had only ONE test done! TheHSG came back as negative (nothing wrong) Tankle told me that he thought he saw something in the result but said it was NOTHING! Then said "I don't know why you're not getting pregnant but you should be". Went to the fertility clinic and the awesome doctors there couldn't understand why Tankle didn't do anymore test if he saw something wrong in my hsg! Found out I had polyps, had them removed and got PREGNANT! No thanks to Tankle! Polyps can turn to cancer cells if not removed! Thanks for nothing Tankle! Wait times are horrible, secretary is rude. Had to wait 45 mins in the HOSPITAL for him to preform the hsg! Laying on the hard X-ray bed for 45 mins! Everyone was upset! Don't waste your time find a different doctor who actually wants to help you!

Great doctor and nurse. I trust his experience and knowledge. However, he has the rudest receptionist. She treats clients like a prisoner with her tone. Its a wonderful experience being pregnant but each visit to the office, my blood boils when I have to talk to her.
