Dr. Tatar is one of the BEST handsome Dr., aroundd, I have been his patient for 30 yrs., & he know how to cheer you up. His medical option is one of the best. I love how he takes his time, does not rush you and explains and draws pictures of your problems. Not like other Dr., you are in and out the door. He REALLy cares about his patients. As for sinus surgery he is one that does not believe in packing your sinus with guards. I would not go anywhere else.!,

I've been a patient of Dr. Tatar for 3 years now, and I am so glad to have found him. He is both thorough and professional; I never feel rushed when I'm there and he listens to my concerns with care. Beyond all of that, he respects me. My opinions and thoughts are welcome and he includes them in his assessment. It's rare to find a doctor that doesn't automatically assume that they know more than the patient. I've referred my elderly mother and I've taken my children, and I will again.

Staff is difficult to deal with - especially Regina. She lied to us on multiple occasions over 6 months, telling us she was in contact with our insurance company trying to get approval for testing. I finally got my company resolution team involved - she lied to them initially as well, then said it was her job to deal with the insurance company. We are moving on to another doctor. No way to get through to the doctor - ineptitude at best, malpractice at worst!
Clarksville, MD |
Dr. Tatar and his staff put me completely at ease with an uncomfortable procedure and a difficult diagnosis. Visits with Dr. Tatar are always longer than I expect because of the time he spends casually explaining things to me. He and his staff have gone out of their way to accommodate me and make sure I had all the right information and results, on more than one occasion.

Poor communication. Focuses on billing more than patient care.
