Dr Tangel really didn't listen. My father was under his care at Hays Medical. He had pneumonia resulting from aspiration. He was doing better and there were no clear instructions left for the nurses. There were hardly enough care on the second floor care unit. I'm addition, that floor was not well managed. When you have an aspirating patient, you don't feed them a full meal and you should properly manage feeding them while watching them. My father, who was recovering immediately asparated again, and instantly took a turn. His wish was not to be placed on the ventilator. His wishes were ignored. This was a very difficult time for our family. Dr Tangels ignorance and staffs lack of care and attention at that hospital is extremely poor. I pray you find find yourself under either of their care.

Dr. Tangel and his staff are exceptional. It's rare to not feel rushed, confused, stressed when visiting a doctor…especially for a serious medical condition. Doctors are under a lot of pressure to move quickly from patient to patient. Dr. Tangel may do just that, but his approachable, friendly demeanor, and his willingness to listen to and answer questions in a calm, relaxed fashion hide any urgency to "move on to the next patient." The staff shares the credit…no doctor could do this alone.

He cares about his patients in all aspects. I came to him with multiple chronic diseases and he systematically went thru my illnesses until I had been taken care of by him or other specialists if he felt it were needed. I know he will take care of me to the best of his ability. If you are new to the area,please give him a chance. If you are unhappy with your current pulmonologist,he's your man.Trust him,I do and I am a single mother of two and grandmother of two. God Bless Dr. Tangel and Staff !
