Dr. Tanya Fatimi, MD

Neurologist

Professional statement

In medical school, I was fascinated by the diagnostic puzzles of clinical neurology. While I still enjoy diagnostic challenges, forging long-term relationships with patients has proven to be the most fulfilling aspect of my medical career. My strong relationships are based upon collaboration with my patients, their caregivers, and their other health care providers. I respect patients' time and accommodate busy schedules by offering early morning and evening appointments. I strive to maintain open and easy lines of communication by giving my patients direct phone access and by encouraging electronic communication via our portal.

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 symptomsthat 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!

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.

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 andquestions at my final visit. I found another neurologist with a better understanding of my neurological issues.
