Dr.Tandatnick worked on my back and he did a tremendous job on it and I'll tell anybody in the world that they ever have a back problem they can always come up and see doctor and he'll get the job done

At my first visit as he walked in his greeting was" If you are here for narcotics you need to go somewhere else" . I do not write for those. Never asked for narcotics nor was it my intention to. Then he schedules procedures knowing well that the patient is on blood thinners and needs to be off for a few days. He is judgemental and this was my worst experience ever at any doctors office. Save your time and look for someone better.

I cannot explain the difference in my life I have since being treated by Dr. Tandatnick. I havae 5 bulging discs and the pain is dreadful. BUT, after being treated by Dr. Tandatnick, my pain level is very manageable . When the Doctor is with you, you have his full attention, never rushed, welcomes questions. The staff is exceptional - best.

I would like to thank Dr. Tandatnick for the wonderful and excellent care I have received. I recently had one epidural shot and it has changed my life. For the first time in many months, I am pain free in my back .... about 80% now, which has been like a miracle for me. He is thorough, listens carefully, rechecks details and is very caring and also has a great office staff. Thank You!

Dr. Tandatnick has been my pain management M.D. for several years. I have benefited greatly both from the steroid treatments that he gave me and his expert guidance of physical therapy . I consider him a "great" doctor in every respect .'

In August 2015, after months of excruciating back spasms that would sometimes drop me to my knees, I went in search of relief. I found Dr. Tandatnick. He suggested a series of injections to both left and right sides of spine and I had immediate relief. One year later and still no spasms. We have now addressed an issue of lower back pain radiating down my right hip. Again, I have relief and am able to resume my daily exercise. My thanks to doctor and his caring staff.

Very positive, Dr Tandatnick, from my first appointment, said he would make my neck pain be eased. So today for the first time in 2-3 years I can turn my neck WITHOUT pain. Thank you Dr. Tandaknick and your staff!!!
Sensitive to client concerns. Answer questions for his field. Recommends superb surgeons and neurologist and physical therapists. Does not believe in opiates to mask symptoms nor use of neck braces or hydrolic traction.

I had severe lower back pain and nearly confined to a wheelchair. After 2 treatments the pain level is minimal and can enjoy my normal activities again.
in Dunedin, FL |
Dr. Tandatnick's thoroughness and professional manner, together with his great experience and knowledge enabled him to immediately take care of my problem. I highly recommend him to anyone looking for pain relief. He is not quick to prescribe medication or surgery but works with you in your best interest. He is definitely a caring and excellent physician.

Dr. Tandatnick is an excellent doctor who truly cares about his patients. Because of his thoroughness, they discovered an aneurysm that was overlooked by several other doctors. I highly recommend him.

The doctor works his magic on my back! The pain is gone!??
in Clearwater, FL |
Dr T is amazing. He takes care of me and my wife. My wife calls him Dr. Miracle and he deserves that nick name. My wife reviewed Dr T and could not find a place on the site to write her feelings, so I'm doing that for her and me. As far as I'm concerned he's not only an excellent physician he's a very good person. YOU CAN BE absolutely sure of receiving the best medical care possible. Additionally, his staff, Susan and Linda are outstanding.
