Ratings for Dr. Nikolas Tsandelis
Only had him for appointments but not to deliver my baby. Wait times weren't horrible usually ranged from waiting 20 mins to an hour and a half which isn't horrible compared to other OB's. My biggest complaint would be the lack of flexibility with appointment days. They only see their OB clients once a week and I only ever could get apppointments in the morning which wasn't convenient for my work schedule. It was also annoying that other people would walk in and say they only had an hour because they were on lunch and the staff would let them in first even though a bunch of people were waiting and I too had to go back to work. Dr T isn't very talkative. He is right to the point which is fine but wasn't very detailed in telling me what to look for (like right upper quadrant pain for high BP which I had ) and only ever listened to the heart beat for like 5 seconds which isn't an accurate measurement. He knows what he is doing for sure but detail and friendliness is lacking. I wouldn't hate to go back but I have come across some other great OB's that I will probably ask for first
This is my second pregnancy and the second time I'm seeing dr Tsandelis and I wouldn't want it any other way. Before I got pregnant I was seeing him because we were having trouble getting pregnant the second time. He sent me for every test he could think of and found out what my issues were.. and fixed them. I got pregnant within a month or 2 of him figuring out my cycle was wacky. So I just kept going to him from day 1 of my pregnancy. He is VERY to the point and tries to get you in and out of your appointment. I like that. I don't need to talk about my feelings.. if I wanted that I would see a midwife. Sometimes I sit in his office for a longgggggg time but that's normal.. he's on call and there are emergencies. It would be nice if the lady's at the front desk would update you... but they don't. He knows what he's talking about and he knows when something isn't right. I'm glad he's my doc again and would 100% recommend him to ANYONE.. and I have.
He was punctual and friendly. Very knowledgeable and addressed all the concerns I had. He was objective and polite. His staff gave me a call reminder which was a nice surprise since other specialist I visit never do. I was skeptical based on these reviews and prepared to wait for 2 hours as I do at other specialist but I was called right on time and was out of there in 30 mins
Dr. Tsandelis was my OB for my first pregnancy and I was lucky enough to go into labour on his last night on call. I was so relieved he was there to deliver my first child. I asked to be referred back to him for my 2nd pregnancy. I find him helpful, polite, knowledgeable, and he has a sense of humor. I trust him. I would definitely recommend him.
My first and only visit with this OB was when I was in labour. He was on-call and bullied me into having a c-section. When I asked questions about my condition and the baby's, he brushed me off and told me that my pelvis wasn't big enough. Had I not had a midwife to discuss this with before consenting, I would definitely have considered this to be a traumatic birth and I am almost certain that I would be suffering from postpartum depression now, 3 months later.
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.... ???
