Verified Patient Reviews
Dr. Fatimi and her staff are kind and professional. She was able to diagnose a condition that baffled other doctors. She gave me piece of mind and I am very thankful.
Yes I would recommend Dr, Tanya Fatimi, she is a very professional and sweet person. Great personality, took her time to answer all my questions and a through examination.
I had a concussion from a snowboarding accident and Dr. Fatimi was a comfort to have for an injury where the scariest thing is not knowing the severity. She had a great bedside manner and was patient in explaining additional symptoms that might arise. As the symptoms were still in the early stages, we monitored it for a few days to determine whether additional steps needed to be taken. She was super helpful in providing me with a number to contact her just in case and she called a few days later just to make sure I was doing well!
In this visit, Dr. Fatimi was Professional Amicable Courteous Helpful Caring ... and on target with diagnosis.
I did a reasearch on her and thought we would be a good fit, but my consultation with her was disappointing.
The front desk receptionist Jeannie was a star!
Dr. Fatimi was immediately dismissive of all of my symptoms. Unlike other physicians who work with the patient in a partnership, Dr. Fatimi sought to label me as a difficult patient with "anxiety". She was aggressive, and I would not return. She also made sure that my medical record showed "anxiety" which is problematic for seeing other physicians within the same system as many will not believe my symptoms.
I felt really healthy after talking to her
Initially warm and receptive but ultimately unhelpful and would not recommend. The last straw was when I was her finally appointment of the day, and she clearly wanted to leave the office, practically completely dismissing my concerns and questions at my final visit. I found another neurologist with a better understanding of my neurological issues.
