Dr. Tandon was a Dr. that was referred to me for a particular condition. I was extremely apprehensive about seeing someone I hadn't seen before. Didnt know what to expect. My concerns were rapidly gone. Dr. Tandon was respectful and completely engaged in listening and making sure I knew she had heard me. She was very thoughtful and thorough in her comments to me about my condition and what the next steps were. I was very pleased.

I normally don't like clinics or hospitals but every visit at Kadlec services has been pleasant and warming. I recently moved to the area and was worried about seeing new doctors but I am beyond glad I chose this provider to have my child. The experience was better than expected.

[...] At the office consultation with Dr. Tandon, she addressed the problem verbally and scheduled a bladder nerve test and a follow-up office visit 3 (!!!) months later. At that time we will discuss the test results and the possibility of medication and/or uterus removal. It seems that from the beginning of January until anything substantive is done, it will be July--6 (!!!) months from first initiation of problem. This is extremely frustrating as well as hindering as I have bladder leakage--am humiliated by the problem and would like to at least try the medication before 3 months to see if that is helpful. Instead, I continue to wait. The time between initiation and doing something about it should NOT be so long. Granted, this is not "do or die" however, like I stated, I am humiliated with a prolapsed uterus causing bladder problems. I contacted the office several times trying to get into a cancelation appointment prior to the ones I have been given but this has not proven successful.

She really didn't check me much after the med student did. And didn't even say anything about my ultrasound i just had, it was a really quick check up but i waited 20mins from my appointment time to be called but waited 40mins total before i got in coz i was in there 20mins early. Then everything was so quick with the check up, blood test that she asked me to do wasn't even explain what i'm being tested for.

Dr.Tandon is the most caring, knowledgeable, and competent doctor I have EVER had. she listened to my concerns, gave me options, and was a partner with me in my medical care. My experience with her was wonderful and her medical care has made me healthy and pain free again.

this was my 3rd visit with Dr Tandon in a couple months. it did concern me a bit when the medical assistant checking me in went over my allergies, same as the last 2 times, and there was something on there, that has never been before, and not something I am allergic to. and my allergy to dairy was not listed. I now see on my KChart that it shows i have an intolerance to dairy, not an allergy...to me that is 2 different things, I am not intolerant and can take a lactose pill, I am allergic and have more sever issues if I ingest any dairy

Dr. Tanden was really good at listening to my concerns, asking insightful questions, and responding by providing information and options. I felt treated very respectfully and helped. I was so glad I came.

Dr. Tandon was great and what I would expect of my doctor. It takes a couple of months to schedule with her, which is the only drawback. Seeing her prevented me from going to another medical office as I was not pleased with my experience with another doctor at the practice. [...] Because of Dr. Tandon, I will continue to go to this practice for my annual gynecological exam.

02/07/2019
As usual, Dr. Tandon was most helpful, as she addressed my issued and questions with empathy and professionalism.

The only issue I have is how busy the office is becoming. It always seems to be overbook and sometimes hard to get into a provider that you like to see. [...]

The provider seems knowledgeable but visits generally seem very rushed and impersonal. During the last two visits, I was asked for a urine sample but another unclosed sample was already in the receiving compartment. I never received results from the last urine sample. I don't understand why the urine was not tested if a sample was requested. Was this an error or a shortcut because the office was busy? Additionally, it took two weeks from the time my genetic screening results were sent to the office until I received a phone call with the results. I had received the results from the lab but this is an unacceptable amount of time to wait to speak to the provider's office about time-sensitive information.

Love her & have already recommended Dr. Tandon to others. She has been a huge blessing to our family.

Dr. Tandon appears to be incredibly good at everything! She is kind, knowledgeable, patient and articulate. A true gem in today's healthcare environment! I feel very fortunate to have her as my women's health provider. Dr. Tandon keeps me informed of my test results, etc. via my k-chart and returns e-mails very promptly.
100

10/17/2018
I won't recommend Ms. Tandon to new patients . Not because she isn't qualified, but because she is so busy already that I had to wait 8 weeks to get in, that made my mamo gram 2 months late.
