Dr. Tamesis loves to give out the newest medication but he does not like to listen to the patient. He does not want to be questioned ever! He becomes hostile and will threaten to discharge you as a patient even if it is a misunderstanding. He charges for every piece of paperwork needing to be filled out and it is never the same price.

If I could give him a review without stars I would. Doesn't check your medical record to review history. His intake forms don't even ask questions about symptoms or why you are there. Just three different ways to list your level of pain. This was my second referral to him and I walked out. When he said positive lab work doesn't mean anything without symptoms that was it. He doesn't listen. I explained my symptoms 3x and he still asked me what was wrong. He poked every joint with one finger and asked if it hurt. That's the extent of his physical. I was referred to him by my Endocrinologist due to symptoms and labwork that showed positive for a rheumatic disorder. This guy is only there to collect a paycheck. His staff is really friendly. It's a shame they work for such an ignorant doctor. I wouldn't ask my worst enemy to deal with him. Anyone can get a degree but not everyone has bedside manners or common sense. HORRRRRIBLE!

Today was my First Visit with Dr Tamesis. Last night I read the bad reviews, & it really scared me about the Dr. and his staff. I could not cancel the appointment as I would of had to pay for the normal less 24 hr. cancellation. So decide to keep this appointment and if he and staff was as bad as I read in the reviews, then I just would not go back for follow up-appointment. I got lost on way there and called for directions and end up being 15 mins late for my appointment. The staff was wonderful and did not get bent out of shape. We must remember not all doctors have happy good bedside manners. But the real question is "was he/she listening to you of your problem, did he/she explain in laymen term what the issue is and how to fix it if can be fix, did he dismiss you prematurely? I was completely satisfied with my visit with Dr. T and he explained what the issue is going on with me. I do have a follow up appointment and will be seeing him then. Marie S. , Middletown De

When ever I come for an appointment I have to wait 30 to 40 minutes past my appt time before being seen. They are always running behind and over booking the office.

Sad, he is a good physician, however, I cannot say the same for his office staff. Particularly the office manager. She is extremely unprofessional and hounds her staff. I was sitting in the waiting room and was appalled even disgusted by the way she was talking to the staff. I will not be returning, I cannot condone such childish behavior. Sorry Dr. Tamesis, you should fire her and bring in someone more suitable for the job.

Dr. tamesis seems to have a very cold uncaring bedside manner. When I asked dr. tamesis questions He gives me short blunt answers, he never efficiently explains anything to me, and he always seems very annoyed and cold. I don't know why he's that way but I've decided that I will never be a patient of his again. I'm battling cancer at this time and I'm constantly seeing a Litany of doctors and out of all the doctors that I'm a patient of he's the only one who makes me feel uncomfortable.

One of the worst experiences I've ever had. The front desk staff is very unprofessional. The doctor never really put his hands on me and touched me like I was contagious. I will never recommended this practice to anyone.

His office refused to see me do to $70 owed. I was forced to see another dr 3 years ago. I have since paid the balance, had an appt & the dr is refusing to see me because I saw a different dr TWICE 3 years ago. I made a new appt which they cancelled after confirming it the Thursday before the appt. They did not tell me until I arrived for my appy. Very poor way to handle your practice. I trusted this dr after seeing him for years. Sad that I need to find a new dr and suffer until I get an appt.

Horrible manner. Dirty room. If I asked questions, he was put off. Shamed me for not taking prevention med. I called the next day and decided to start prevention med, and his staff told me he said he was not going to prescribe med if there is no active disease. What?? Staff is unprofessional on phone and in person. I don't have fibromyalgia, but he told me as an example that fibromyalgia is not real and only in a person's head. Probably easy to get an appointment because no one returns.

While he himself is not warm or engaging, he does listen, and he does prescribe medicines. I do believe he cares.
