I went for a pap smear, and she turned it into a routine physical. I was okay with it since I probably needed one, but then came out all of the "do you want to test this or test that"....which Isaid "NO". I thought her taking a cell call during my examination was a little tacky.

Dr. Tatelman was very thorough and engaging during my annual check-up. We have an action plan that will help meet my health goals. She does not hesitate recommending other physicians with specialties that I need to see.

Dr. Tatelman did a very through new patient initiation. She asked questions around my family history and I felt she was able to understand a better picture of my medical history through this. I never felt rushed or talked down to(as some Drs do). I would and will go see her again. The only negative is the office. It seems a bit hodge podge, with filing boxes in common patient rooms and check-in around the corner from the main area (which is a testing center). Upon check-in I was scolded for not arriving 15 min early to fill out paperwork, even though I had already done so online to save everyone time. The office location is great even with these negatives, right next to El Camino Hospital.

Dr. Tatleman is a very good doctor. She is a good listener and has always been spot on with all her diagnoses. Unlike other doctors, she does not go overboard with tests and is cognizant of my coverage. I would recommendher very strongly. I still visit her even after moving away from Mountain view.

I see Dr. Tatelman for general medication management and as a "start point" for referrals. She's been excellent about taking on medication management, and helps me feel empowered, not defensive, about my self-observed medical needs. She'svery respectful and empowering, and because of this I take her thoughts and suggestions very seriously--she hasn't led me astray so far!
