Esophagoscope for Barrett's Esophagus

In the last 3 years I have had many doctors try to help me with no luck. He and his staff are great. Everything has gone great. I would refer him to all. Wish I had met him years ago.

Terrible doctor

He was so RUDE! Didn't even look through my medical records beforehand! I drove 4 hours to see him & he literally spent 10 seconds with me! He wouldn't let me tell him my medical history or my symptoms & he kept saying was no it's not that, can't be that!! Basically rushing me out the room!

One Star

It took longer for the receptionist to resgister and check me in, than it did for the physician to come in and introduce himself. I was seen by his nurese practitioner who took the time to gather medical history. I went to Dr. Tarnasky because he was voted Best GI according to D magazine. What a dissapointment.

Anesthesia Provider

He is kind to staff. He is organized. He shows up on time. He appears to have an excellent relationship with his patients. He is very knowledgeable and very proficient. Within North Texas, he is see as THE definitive expert in ERCP. He is not going to do a procedure needlessly. BTW, I moved and no longer work with him.
