What People Say About Dr. Mary Tilak, MD

Would give zero stars if possible. Medical care ok, but staff has absolutely no costumer service skills. You can never reach a human being on the phone. When forced to request needed med refills only through portal, don't hear back for a week and when you call to follow up are told they never received the requested. Office personnel downright surly and if you get frustrated and demand better service they are even worse on future visits. I guess they have too many patients for their staffing, so if they tick some of them off and they go elsewhere, no problem!

No problem with doc or her nurse practitioners. All competent. It’s the wait time that is ridiculous. Poor selection of reading materials, so you are forced to watch tv. With the painful wait times, you can easily see the same loop four times! Can’t recommend. Also, hard to get thru to talk to anyone — they will call you back at some point. Also, scripts are only refilled at their convenience, and i’ve had to call to remind them.

Excessive wait times, poor communication by office personnel and getting charged the same to see doctor and "nurse practitioner" are the reasons I located a different doctor. 60-90 minute wait time is excessive! A poorly trained office staff plays "phone tag" rather than answering a direct inquiry.

Dr Tilak is outstanding. She is extremely intelligent and certainly applies it when caring for her patients. Patients are sometimes seen by Nurse Practitioners but their conditions are reviewed by Dr Tilak and if she needs to intervene, she is right there. I cannot think of anyone else that I would rather care for me. In my opinion, whatever she says or does is 100% right! Richard Moore

Tilak has the potential to be a great physician, however as she is involved with community hospital, is the business owner, and main physician, she is always running late for appointments, and you are forced to see n NP in her place, after waiting for several hours. I believe it is a conflict of interest and her highest interest is increasing revenue and not the health or concerns of the patient. When you do see her, it is just for a couple of minutes to show face. Her staff changes often.

yes, i would recommend to others. the recordings are annoying, but do not sale them short when it comes to a life or death or hard to determine mater, She is the one you will be thankful to have. My husband had a stroke and in the mists of that stroke someone recommend her and we never regretted that decision. As for the staff, they are nice but i think what some may experience is growing paining. Its a growing business and she hires new ones to meet the need and to be seasoned.

Very long wait times. Dr. Tilak has too much on her plate. I was misdiagnosed and ended up in the hospital. It's also hard getting through to the office, they seem overloaded too. I am looking for a new doctor, I prefer to find one that cares.

Doctor seldom seen. Nurse practitioners only for the most even when scheduled to see Dr. Tilak. They have to check in with her frequently when they see you. From day one Dr TIlak very confrontational and has little empathy seem to look down on you. Speaks loudly and with attitude towards you especially when hospitalized speaks loudly berating you when you can least defend yourself . Tells you really nothing about your condition and will not take time to talk to you as a person. Money # One.
