I agree with the reviewer who described her as approach as superficial. She hardly listened to my description of my child's symptoms and recommended a series of tests based on the algorithm she used. If she had listened, or read the patient's chart, she would have known that all the testing had already been done. We are in the process of seeking a different pediatrician.

Dr. Tatunay is very friendly, but does not listen to her patients. Everything is a scorecard or survey. She hands out medication quite liberally, and oftentimes offers no explanation for them, or alternatives. We found that she adds diagnoses without discussion or explanation, and does not tell you about adding the upgraded diagnostic codes (better ins. pmt?). Overall, I find her pleasant, yet untrustworthy.

My daughter had been experiencing like almost back outs where she would be out of it for a couple of seconds. We went to Tatunay because something was obviously wrong and she said it was probably a.d.d. And told us to go see the school psychologist. She of course didn’t think this was it and my daughters condition worsened resulting in a horrible injury. Never coming back and advising friends and family to stay away.
