At Northwestern Medicine, our patient’s feedback is important to us. While different care providers have their own unique strengths, we strive to be as transparent as possible with our quality of care.
The wait today was pretty long today (over an hour), but Dr. Tanna apologized nicely and I certainly appreciated that. Usually the wait times are not a problem and the staff is always nice and very professional. I assume most doctors run late occasionally despite their best efforts.
Dr. Tanna is very thorough, extremely knowledgeable, and transparent about my diagnosis and treatment plan for my eyes as they age. Moreover, he helps me to understand why my eyes are experiencing certain issues as they continue to age.He is at the top of his field, which is why I know he will ensure that I will continue to receive high-quality care and maintenance. I am extremely happy that Dr. Tanna is my Ophthalmology.
I've been a patient for about 15 years. I have always been very pleased with the service level of the Opthalmology department's staff. From the folks at the front desk, the students, residents and Fellows and the doctors are consistently, very friendly, obviously competent and. Interested in my well being.
Dr. Tanna did a more thorough exam and explained more about my glaucoma than 3 other doctors who treated me. I also appreciated that Dr. Tanna asked me questions about my medical history In general and specifics about my experience and treatment with glaucoma. Often, those questions are Answered on a written form or inserted in the computer by an assistant. I feel that some doctors don't even look at them. That was a refreshing change and left me feeling that all factors are being considered as he advises me on the treatment plan I need.
Dr. Tanna did a more thorough exam and explained more about my glaucoma than two optometrists which I had gone and one other ophthalmologist. I feel I have the best care available now. Additionally, everybody I encountered on my visit To Northwestern Medicine was professional, welcoming and kind. Those kinds of interactions are extremely reassuring when you're dealing with a serious health issue
I have complete confidence in Dr. Tanna, recognize his outstanding skills and training, and appreciate the care and personal attention provided. I also appreciate the apparent efficiency of the facility and staff.
I only saw him twice so far. Today he told me he had explained something to me before. I told him no, this was my second visit with him and the first appt didn't go that well. Somehow l feel disappointed with these appts. I wanted to change my care from another facility to NW but l don't really feel being treated with care and empathy.
As esteemed a glaucoma specialist as Dr. Tanna is, the manner in which these interactions with support staff were handled, is not commensurate with what one would expect in terms of professionalism and patient care.
I am deaf. Dr. Tanna tried hard to make me understand and also clarified some things for me. He seemed very familiar with my history, was compassionate and patient. I feel confident he will do everything he can to help me.
Although this was my initial appointment I found Dr. Tanna to be personable and knowledgeable. My concern is that he seems to be overloaded with patients.Consequently his time with individual patients may be affected by this reality.
Like I said he is very professional. But could be a little more people friendly. But,but at this last visit he was more talkative"friendly then usual. But ,but,but it was just he and I in the room, no other staff.
Northwestern has a good reputation which is probably why this department is always busy with people waiting to see their specialist. Dr Tanna is very professional. I also want to keep all my doctors out of same medical group.
Dr, Tanna is the most knowledgeable and effective as well as most friendly and encouraging doctor I have ever been cared for by in addition to the excellent example he gives to his co-healthcare providers.
Dr Tanna's excellent in his field but he needs to better communicate the the results of the doctor visit and not be so serious. It's bad enough that we have these terrible eye conditions but he could be more personal and shows empathy to make you feel that things will be okay.
Dr. Tanna is very knowledgeable and to the point, but he always takes time to sincerely answer questions and concerns. He may be a bit â€šÃ„Ãºtype Aâ€šÃ„Ã¹ - but that's a personality trait I want in the person caring for my vision.
I was a patient of Dr. Anchala but she is no longer at Northwestern Hosp. So I went to see Dr. Tanna as a new patient. I did not like his bedside manners. I felt like I was being talked at as opposed to being talked to. When examining my eyes Dr. Tanna was talking to his assistant and his assistant was entering Dr. Tanna's assessment of my eyes into the computer. He didn't bother to discuss his assessment. When I asked him questions he was very dismissive and didn't answer my questions. He spent very little time with me and didn't seem to want answer any questions as though he was too busy. I found him disconnected and not very engaging. Very disappointed. I plan on looking for another opthamologist.
Dr Tanna keeps close track of my progress and we openly discuss treatment plans. I truly feel a partnership with him in my treatment. I also believe it is his diligence that has lead to the stabilization of my glaucoma.
Very friendly. So professional. Detailed oriented. Careful to check everything. Read all my previous records from NW & other clinics. Answered all my questions. Gave me complete evaluation. Explained future treatment.
