Ratings for Dr. Nikolas Tsandelis
I waited 3.5 hours later than my appt. time at hospital for colposcopy, however bedside manner isn't the most important thing when picking a gyno. I've heard from many hospital nurses he's the best when it comes to the procedures, but just make sure you advocate for yourself as he is fast & stern when speaking.l
Always late...no bedside manners...let me hemorrhage for 33 hrs while he was on call for 24 of them he was no where to befound because he was at his sons hockey game....my son is now medically fragile and needs 24/7 care...this man is a arrogant piece of work!
Waited to see this doctor for 4-5 months only to get to my 1pm appointment early. Wait an hour and not be seen because I had amother appointment to get too. Whrn j asked how far I was, there was still 3 people ahead. Some people I guarantee had been waiting nearly 2 hours. Some say he's good, some of these reviews claim the opposite. All I say is if you have an appointment. Prepare to take off 3 hours for your appointment or more because your appointment means nothing to them.
The whole triple booking himself but then showing up when he wants is frustrating. I've only got a certain # of sick days/holiday hours, and what I think will be an hour is usually longer. the staff are rude, which is hilarious because they have a sign posted that rude behavior won't be tolerated, which I'd love to call them out on. I don't know why this is the GP's "go-to" OBGYN when he's just not that good. I kept trying to get a procedure, and he kept suggesting other options that kept not working, but yet still didn't do what I wanted. I'm going to find another doctor. Perhaps because he's the OB for the women's prison & triple books appointments he doesn't have enough time in the day.... ???
I have been dealing with Tsandelis since he was recommended for me to have surgery. Since then, all i have gotten is ignorance. He does not and didnt look me in the eyes at Any of my appointments. He was always with a trainee, he talked over me and through me when i tried to speak with him about what was happening to my body. He has only ever given me a prescript and told me to come back and tell him if it worked out or not. I went in ONLY to ask about what he did inside me at surgery, but ya, i got a prescript and he ignored me as usual..I have been seeing him after surgery the most because he DIDNT TAKE OUT MY CYST, And seems like he doesnt care that he messed up, refuses to see that he did mess up and hes is the one who was supposed to go in and get the cyst, out of my ovaries, instead he messed around in there and when i saw him on two different occasions about it he had different answers about what exactly he was doing when he had me cut open. I cannot Stress enough, how little he makes me feel when i am sitting in front of him...When i ask him where is the ultrasounds that show ihe proof of what was to be done, he didnt have that information at all...I told him i weould send him my ultrasound results and he said fax them, with what fax number?? They dont have it advertised anywhere and it wasnt given to me at the doctors office!
Ended up having an unexpected Csection with my first and Tsandelis was the oncall that delivered her. He took the time to explain to me why I couldn't vaginally birth her and ultimately ended up in surgery. He was knowledgeable and did his Job. I wouldn't say he was extra sweet or anything. But a few ppl warned me that he had no bedside manners at all- I was happy with the care. I was told about the risks associated with having a second and potential to hemmorage if I attempted a vbac. So was recd to do repeat csection the 2nd time. When I got pregnant with my 2nd I decided to go back to the dr who knew my history and therefore could give me proper care. The wait times for his Appts were awful- but I'm pretty certain that's to be expected with ob's. I wasn't bothered about that. As long as me and my babies were healthy. I'll tell you what annoyed me though- his staff!! I got attitude from the brown lady who calls you in every time I was there because she assumed I knew what she needed from me everytime I went in there- but I was under the care of several different drs and was therefore bounced around with my Appts. It would've been nice for her to chill out and just ask me nicely what the situation was and when I'd be back to see the dr again and what I'd need to bring with me for the future Appts. Also, the lady behind the computer (I believe its Heather) is SO slow. Single fingers on a keyboard. And even when you clearly specify what appt u need and what day and for what reason. She still needs to clarify 8 times and still messes it up. Today I left the hospital 48 hrs after a section with my second dd. Dr said he'd send me home with a script. He forgot (it happens). On route home from the hospital I called his office to request the script be sent to my drug store. Simple right? Wrong!!!! I called 57 times. Busy. Finally get through. Kindly explain I just left the hospital that day, stated my name and what I wanted. She said "ok" and nearly hung up on me before I asked if she needed my last name, phone number and the pharmacy I'd like it sent too- she says "oh yeah". So I ask her to call me at the number provided to tell me when she sent the script over. A few minutes later I receive 3 attemped faxes to my cell phone. She's faxing my cell a script. I try calling back for an hour after. And when I finally get through she tells me she sent it over already. Even after I explained that she was faxing MY phone number. Not the pharmacy. She didn't get it. So then she tell me I should call the pharmacy to make sure. And if they don't have it I should get them to fax her requesting it. I'm annoyed now. I am very sore and this is all with me getting home and settled with a newborn and toddler. In pain. I call the pharmacy. They of course, have Not received a fax. And can't request my script from them via fax as I have never had these pain meds prescribed before (why am I even having to do this for the secretary is what's annoying!!!!) so I now have to get through the office AGAIN to get them to send my script so I can get my pain meds. I swear, with hormones. I had to bite my tongue to not go postal on the secretary on the phone!!!!!!!!! Never been so irritated in my life. Rant done.
