I saw Dr. Tansinda as a new patient. I am new the Baltimore area so I was in search of a great doctor who is knowledgeable, experienced but also a good listener. He meet all of my expectations. He gave tohis full attention and he got to know me as a person not just as a patient.

The doctor visit was very informative about my health and he ran a lot test before making a diagnosis . This was a comfort to my mind in knowing that he took time to know the facts before making a diagnosis.And only issued prescriptions after the test were made.

Avoid like the plague (pun intended). The practice does not integrate Zocdoc in their record keeping. Consequently, staff will re-ask you for all of the information you painstaking completed here on line. Although Tansinda is personableand competent, the overall medical experience is unworthy of a trip to his office - especially given the relative abundance of primary care physicians in the area. The front office staff is ineffective, unprofessional and routinely overbooks him. He is unwilling to tolerate any criticism of these issues, which also includes failure to promptly notify him when prescriptions need to be re-filled. In one instance, I called his office after CVS was unable to get his staff to contact him (after three attempts on six different occasions). The medical assistant contended untruthfully that I yelled at her after I asked her not to yell at me with respect to why Tansinada had not been notified of the prescription issue. In short, you can expect routine two to three hour waits to see him, prescriptions that will be filled, but not re-filled, staff that will not give him messages, and him to ignore your concerns. In closing, a trip to this practice is really not worth the aggravation of dealing with such an ineffective manager, which is also what a physician is supposed to be in absence of a good efficient, professional office manager: A void he refuses to address. Avoid at all costs.

Dr. Tansinda was extremely nice and helped me out a lot. The only issue I had was the wait time, I spent about 3 hours in his office. It's now been a week later and I can't get my prescription becausethe office hasn't confirmed it with my pharmacy. Every time I try to call they don't pick up and it doesn't lead to a voicemail.

They did not have the documents filled out on Zoc Doc on their computer. This delayed me another hour giving all health information. What was the purpose of taking time to complete on line?? Dr.Tansinda was very good and I ammore than happy with him as my primary care doctor.

Dr. Tansida was GREAT! Very easy to talk to and very knowledgeable in his responses to all of my questions. I went for a routine check up and to inquire about a few things that have been bothering me. He wasa great listener as I explained my symptoms and worries, he was very compassionate and attentive! I would highly recommend hi to all of my friends and family. The only thing I was disappointed in was the office staff over the phone. Not very pleasant or professional. When I first called they answered "doctors office" ( not explaining who or what Dr. you were calling ) she put me on hold, then just hung up. Also I had to call about 7-8 times before some one even answered the phone. I guess it bothers me so much because in every job I've ever had customer/patient service is #1 priority. It takes less effort to smile than it does to frown! I must say though after arriving in the office the office staff wasn't as bad as portrayed over the phone. (people skills need a little work ) Although meeting with Dr. Tansinda made up for it!

Dr. James is the best doctor. He knows what he is doing and he wouldn't interrupt you when you re telling him your problems. He is passionate about his job and cares about his patients. I will definitely make him myPC. I haven't had a PC for so many years, he caught my attention. He is awesome.

The doctor was ok, but the facilities seemed more like a free clinic and my appointment ended up being an hour before the doctor even showed up to the office. Even then, it was first come first served.

Although Dr. Tansinda is really wonderful, and has superb bedside manner, the wait time in his office is always at least 1-2 hours every time I have had an appointment at either of his offices. This unfortunately is not conducive foranyone that values their time, and needs to get in and out of a doctor's appointment asap.

Dr. James seems like a nice guy and a great doctor. However the wait time and the lack of professionalism of his staff was not acceptable. Apparently it's "first come first serve" in the fact that you scheduled an appointment using this app is a relevant.

Dr. Tansinda has a very good bedside manner, and his staff was friendly and organized. The only negatives that I observed were the small, crowded waiting room, and the office overall wasn't as neat as I would like. But overall Ihad a really good appointment with Dr. Tansinda and would recommend him.

All the reviews about Dr. Tansinda were true! He's a great person. Great personality, caring and knowledgable as well. Now his office manager and other staff are a hold other story. The office manager I believe is Robin. She is Veryrude. When I called to state that I was going to be a few minutes late. She questioned did I have a appointment. I informed her that I set it up by using ZocDoc. She asked was it confirmed, she spelled it out and stated it again CONFIRMED!!! I checked my email and it still was showing pending. She stated it's not confirmed until I approve. Really???!!! 15 minutes before my appointment this isn't approved. So what if I had shown up! Upon arrival no staff members were welcoming. Just stared and said can I help you. No smiles, no good morning. Wow! Dr. Tansinda train or hire some new staff members. These individuals do not reflect you as a great doctor/person.

Dr. Tansinda was a pleasure to deal with. He quickly diagnosed what was ailing me and made sure that I was able to secure treatment the same day. His conduct was that of an expert adviser who was trying to helpme. After neglecting to see a doctor for over a decade I thought I might get scolded by whoever I did see, that did not happen. He was amazingly friendly, listened very well, and continued to discuss my condition with me to confirm his quick initial diagnosis. The staff were all very friendly and polite, and the office was equipped with equipment for conducting several diagnostic procedures right there. After I booked the appointment, the staff found some time in their schedule freed up and offered to move my appointment up so that I could get care sooner. I greatly appreciated this, care now is better than care later. I did have to wait a little while beyond my new, earlier appointment before being seen. I'm not particularly upset about this. My appointment was in the afternoon, meaning more previous appointments could delay things. Considering the other side of the coin, I would rather receive thorough, excellent, thoughtful care than have my Doctor cleave rigidly to a schedule. If I wish this for myself, it's only reasonable to accept it as a policy applied to all other patients as well. I was still out of his office a good hour before I'd initially been scheduled to see him!
