They was very nice and professional.

March 2, 2020 6:18 AM

I have seen this provider twice. She spends only about 5 minutes and leaves, her assistants then take over the rest of the appointment. I feel that she should be taking more time with me!

February 9, 2020 8:08 AM

Good experience.

December 11, 2019 8:02 AM

My visit with Dr. Tomashova was fine she is my sleep Doctor we talked about my CPAP machine and usage answer all of my questions I know if I have any issues to call her good appointment! Thanks.

November 10, 2019 11:00 PM

The Sleep Apnea unit was very polite, caring and professional.

November 10, 2019 11:00 PM

Very good & informing visit.

August 10, 2019 7:00 PM

very helpful...very knowledgable

July 14, 2019 7:00 PM

I have had this provider for many years and she is always easy to talk to.

July 10, 2019 7:00 PM

At the reception room, I was called. She took me to the doctors office. I didn't like her because she was cold. No smile, just asked me questions and put the info in the computer and left. During that time she had no smiles! I was offended.

April 10, 2019 7:00 PM

Very good.

April 7, 2019 7:00 PM

I have had Yelana as my specialist for many, many years. I trust her completely and we make decisions by also checking what my primary MD has to say. They keep in touch with each other.

She is a excellent doctor -

February 7, 2019 6:00 PM

Excellent visit. Fine doctor. She cares!

January 30, 2019 6:00 PM

I can never get my regular check up when it is do. I continually get called to reschedule my appointment. this time I had to wait an additional 3 months to get in. I called office to confirm my appointment and was told there was no appointment for me. they added me to a cancellation slot. When I got there I was delayed quite a bit and was continually told it was due to the new system Epic that they were forced to use. I was also told not all my information was in the New system. When I met with the provider assistant I felt rushed and uncomfortable.

Dr. Tumashova is an excellent health provider. Unfortunately she will be doing sleep apnea full tie in the future. I hope I can still see her for the next 10 yrs.

July 23, 2018 7:00 PM

I just want to say something about the RN of Dr. Tumashova that she is not friendly and accomodating. She is the 1st nurse that Dr. Tumashova has that I would rate poor in customer service and patient care. I am not sure what is her name. Thank you!

June 25, 2018 7:00 PM

She is a concerned & caring physician.

June 20, 2018 7:00 PM

Dr. Tumashova is very kind and considerate. I did not see her for any oncology problems because she is my neurologist. However she is always concerned about my general health and how I am since I have had breast cancer twice.

March 7, 2018 6:00 PM

Love Dr. Tumashova and her staff. Always courteous, professional, and you can tell they are all very concerned for their patients.

February 24, 2018 6:00 PM

I was in the ER on 2/9/18. They wanted me to see my neurologist. I do like this doctor and have been seeing her for years. Now things are changing in my body. I did go have the MRI's she ordered and I am hoping she does not make me wait till 3/22/18 my next appointment with her to even talk to me about the results. This would not be fair to me or my health. I am still having problems and have no confidence in doctors at this point. I feel that I am just a number at this point and I am very worried of what is happening to me and hoping at this point that there will not be more damage done by waiting to long to get answers or even thoughts by the doctors who I put my life in their hands to care for me.

February 19, 2018 6:00 PM

The Doctor always takes time to discuss everything with me.

February 1, 2018 6:00 PM

Excellent - in - all respects!!
