Ratings for Dr. R. Tatham
Dr. Tatham knowledge wise he is more than a family doctor by training. He has charisma, polite, empathetic, and a very good & careful listener. He always walk extra mile to find solutions for you, never stop trying options. very blessed to have him as family doctor ever since he moved to Penticton. He deserve a rating of 10 out of 10.
I had him as a doctor in Creston. Great unless you are a young mom. He made me feel like I was doing something wrong when my baby had asthma. Called protective services because I was at the hospital twice in a week and thought I wasn't giving my baby meds. Horrible bedside manner! As long as he likes you, you're golden 👌
i give him 5 stars. If you are lucky to get Dr Tatham as your doctor, you are lucky. He is very kind, attentive and caring about everything not just your medical concerns. He even know if you just need to talk sometimes. He takes things seriously when has too and can lighten the mood when you want breakdown and cry. Having a dr. with looks out for best interest is the best kind of dr. to have.
Reception staff are very sniggly and have been for years, but are efficient. The real superstar is Dr. Tatham! He is British and has a quirky, but kind, sense of humor. He is genuine and compassionate and always looks out for your best interest and quality of life. Yes, he has a tendency to be a bit tardy but that is because he takes the time to ask his patients how they are feeling & doing, which I greatly appreciate. I don't mind waiting. He errors on the side of caution and ordered a test for me upon my last visit which revealed that I had a developing heart problem. I am under the age of 50 and with Dr. Tatham ordering that test....my life will be saved! Consider yourself very LUCKY if you have Dr. Tatham as your Family Doctor.
To all who like hearing the truth, my friend went to Doctor Tatham, explained she wished to apply to get a marijuana license through the goverment of Canada for her medical conditions. Doctor Tatham was polite and willing to help, told her to prepare the applications. I helped her, due to her disability's with the application's and contacting the (speaking with)goverment agents involved with the process of applications. At no time and I actually asked(personal reason's epileptic seizure's)if medicanal marijuana was only for the dead or dieing, not true. When my friend returned to Doctor Tatham, he told her this "I phoned them and they said it's only for the dead or dieing, and so there's nothing I can do to help you with this. Doctor Tatham had no right to lie to his patient and should have sent in the application,too let the goverment decide, since they are the one's who "paid" to give the "LEGAL" answer. Post your thoughts on this. I legally state this is hear/say..third party
