I would recommend Dr. Tkach to anyone need his type of medical expertise. He has many positive traits but the one that stands out is that he is not hurried with me and he takes the time needed. I totally trust him.

December 20, 2016

Dr. Tkach is among the best doctors I've seen for courtesy, patience, and helpfulness.

December 09, 2016

Dr. Tkach is a kind man. The diagnosis my husband received was not what anyone wants to hear; however, Dr. Tkach was very thorough in his explanation and so kind to us as we tried to accept our new reality. He allowed us to cry but was honest with details of what we can expect in the future. He provided us with a POLST form and took the time to explain it to us in detail. I'm very grateful we have found Dr. Tkach to help us travel the journey we are now on.

September 30, 2016

was a little better on my first visit as far as the provider portion goes

September 01, 2016

I already have recommend him to my friends. He is one of a kind, superb.

August 29, 2016

I would recommend Dr. Tkach with the highest regard to anyone but I would not recommend anyone go to your neurology clinic, the staff who makes those appts. doesn't care about your issues and I have tried through the phone number provided and just left a second message through my chart about an issue with my meds and have not heard back from his nurse. So keeping in mind the wait for an appt. and follow up care I would not recommend this clinic to anyone I would be afraid for them as I am myself. Dr. Tkach in of himself is the best, but I will look for another clinic who honors "HealthyU" while I am in school, I feel either you have too many paitents and the follow up nurse just can't get to you or what...they don't care too? I don't know.

July 31, 2016

I was late and he saw me for a few minutes but it wasn't off time for me to ask any questions or to get any answers when I did ask a question I was told that my time was up and I had to leave

July 26, 2016

Doctor Tkach was amazing!!

July 12, 2016

Excellent experience with the doctor.

July 11, 2016

Very helpful. Took all the time I required. Left feeling I was in extremely capable hands.

April 18, 2016

this was the best, most caring, not rushing, informative doctor I have ever been to. I left very confident in with my diagnosis and understanding how to help myself at home.

April 15, 2016

Very good

April 13, 2016

Dr. Tkach is one of the very best physicians that I have had take care of me.

March 18, 2016

I've never had a better medical experience.

March 15, 2016

As I mentioned before, I hold Dr. Tkash in very high regard. You've probably heard this a few times, but my medical issue was very severe and I was still worried about my prognosis. Dr. Tkash gave us a sense of relief and peace that things will work out.

March 06, 2016

This doctor was absolutely amazing. I can't say enough good about him!

February 24, 2016

I wish somebody would examine me physically. I feel the anxiety is a result of something physical. My physical condition seems to be getting worse. A diagnosis of anxiety seems to limit any other diagnosis. I think the doctors first hunch of some kind of autoimune disease was more accurate.

February 23, 2016

I love the doctor and all the assistants! They make it a lot easier to be sick because they show care and concern!

February 13, 2016

Dr. Tkach is an outstanding physician! None better

January 30, 2016

My problems are many, and complicated, but Dr. Tkach was straight-forward and clear, taking the time to illustrate the problems, show me the MRIs, explain so clearly that both my husband and I left the clinic feeling we knew the range of diagnoses and possible approaches too treatment. Paperwork included a section asking what I hoped to learn from the appointment. This is a good innovation, helping me focus on my goals before I met the doctor. He answered my questions completely.

January 12, 2016

I have a lot of confidence in Dr. Tkach. He has a wonderful bedside manner. He seemed to know my file completely. He was in contact with my Dr. Clardy, my main doctor and I felt very safe and well taken care of.

January 08, 2016

I have complete confidence in Dr. Tkash. He is very patient, very understanding, and totally competent. I would like every Doctor that treated me to be like him.

November 21, 2015

Treatment of condition could have been scheduled sooner. Several weeks have gone by before committing to this.

November 16, 2015

Very impressed with the time spent with me, the concern over my health, and the effort spent to find the cause for my condition and how to best treat it.

November 06, 2015

Good teamwork with all involved

November 02, 2015

Dr Tkash (?) was great. He was focused on us, he did not make us feel rushed, he was listening and answering all questions and concerns. We felt he was totally engaged with us during our visit. Our experience was really good and we appreciated it.

October 24, 2015

great humanitarian

October 21, 2015

The amount of time they spend with is amazing compared to my previous provider. I feel the care about me and finding out what is wrong and how to provide the best treatment options possible.

October 20, 2015

very good experience

October 19, 2015

Good job Dr. Tkach it seems like you care and are willing to look for a solution to my footdrop problem.

October 09, 2015

As stated earlier I would've appreciated hearing some level of hope for future mobility rather than his simply telling me I should plan on a wheelchair.

September 07, 2015

wish I was given more information about Schizenphaly and more of brain disorders I have to explain more and the reasoning of why of my health , think it has to do with my disorders are making my health and body changing

September 01, 2015

The Doctor was completely, competent. He was thorough, patient, and did not make me feel foolish in any way relative to the questions I asked. I believe Dr. T to be an exceptional individual in addition to be a completely competent Doctor. I totally trust him.

August 31, 2015

enjoyed Dr. Tkach's help w/my husband's care. he is very thoughtful & kind.

August 16, 2015

I had a great experience with Dr. Tkosh. He was very caring and explained my treatment very well.

July 31, 2015

very good

July 26, 2015

it was nice to have someone that listened!

July 24, 2015

Honestly, I didn't feel initially that we would learn much from Dr. Tkach because he is a stroke specialist & my husband is not having much problem since his two mini strokes over two months ago. We were both very much impressed with Dr. Tkach!

July 24, 2015

Wonderful Service all the way around. Enjoyed my visit and felt good about what was explained and what could be done.

July 12, 2015

I was so pleased to have such a thorough exam & his going over my previous records that I'd brought in & he was prepared & had an MRI from 2006 right there to explain things to me. I feel as though I know my body somewhat & know something isn't exactly right. Am anxious to continue testing & seeing him again.

July 07, 2015

Doctor Tkach was very kind and took the time to explain everything. At no time did I feel rushed. I am very grateful that he is my Neurologist. His explanation made a lot of sense.

July 24, 2014

Dr. Tkach was informative and careful to keep me informed of all he was doing and saying.

May 22, 2014

outstanding care by Dr.& nurse.

May 12, 2014

Doctor Tkach spent the entire visit answering and asking questions in terms I understood. He asked my daughter (who was with me) her observations about my physical and mental status. I always feel better after a visit with Dr.Tkach. I highly recommend him.

January 01, 2014

Dr Tkash was so thoughtful he even called me a few hours after my appointment with something he looked up after I left. Awesome doctor!

November 14, 2013

The doctor explained my conditions and my symptoms along with medications and the recommendations of the follow-up.

November 12, 2013

The appointment setting process was terrible, but once I got to the clinic, the experience was great. Especially Dr Tkash -- he was fantastic!!

November 04, 2013

Dr. Tkach is outstanding in every way
