He is an amazing doctor. After 6yrs of high does asthma meds and bronchitis, Dr. Tessema listened, created an action plan & to this date-I only use alegra and have had no issues. When I was pregnant he ensured I had the right pulmonary doctor & maintenance plan. I’d never go to another ENT or doctor relating to sinus issues.

Dr. Wycherly has been helping me with a complex inner ear issue. He is exceptionally competent and compassionate. He is not deterred from dealing with rare conditions. One of the best.

Dr. Benjamin J Wycherly is an excellent physician. He's compassionate and competent. He takes his time with you, communicates well, asks questions, listens well, and is open and receptive to your questions/comments. He's intelligent, informative —explains medical terms and his diagnosis/conclusions clearly. He's warm, calm, disarming, and has a relaxed, down to earth disposition. You feel confident and assured under his care. He's easy to trust. A+ solid physician all around! The staff is affable, and cheerful! :) The Office is well-kept and adheres to Covid19 safety protocols. :))

Made this appointment as a referral from my primary MD for on-going issue with nasal/sinus congestion. The DR had a condescending, arrogant attitude. When I was asked “What can I do for you”, I explained both the symptoms I WAS and WAS NOT experiencing. I was immediately criticized for the accuracy of the details of my symptoms which I provided. The way I was spoken to was unprofessional and demeaning. I was given a nasal exam with the camera and was told everything was fine. I received no explanations of why I was experiencing congestion and no suggestions for future help. After continuing to experience ongoing congestion for the next 4 months I was referred to another ENT. Again I had another camera nasal exam. I was told I had a deviated septum( this was never told to me by DR Tessema. I also was given a Cat-scan of my sinus cavity. My current ENT has explained and taught how sinus system works but most important, has gotten to the root of my problem and taken the steps needed.

Dr. Tessema was called in by another ENT Doctor to perform my surgery. He fit me in immediately and took time to explain what he predicted he would have to do. The surgery was successful and at my follow up appointments Dr. Tessema answered all my questions. I would highly recommend Dr. Tessema to anyone.

Dr. Tessema did not listen to my concerns. Be prepared for a very expensive bill; he billed for 'surgery' when he looked up my nose with a light. Waited in the office for 2 hours to have a 10 minute appointment that cost me over $1,000. Very poor experience. Would not recommend.

Dr. Tessama does not follow through with what he tells patients. He sends patients for unnecessary tests which prolongs them from getting the relief that they need. It shouldn’t take over a week to schedule a surgery that he recommends.

Absolutely amazing! I asked to be referred to Dr. Tessema solely because of the reviews I read online. Best decision ever. It's been almost 2 weeks since I had a septoplasty with turbinate reduction and cyst removal, and I can breathe clearly for the first time in at least 20 years. I recommend Dr. Tessema wholeheartedly to anyone who has any kind of sinus issue!! Thank you, Dr. Tessema, for changing my life!

Dr Wycherly was awesome! My regular ENT referred me to him for more complex ear and sinus issue. He took the time to show me my CT scans and the inside of my ear and nose. He is very experienced, knowledgable and thorough. I am very impressed with his style and demeanor.

One of the best doctors I have been to. He took his time to listen to me and seemed sensitive to what my issues were. I highly recommend. He's a rare find. I had been to another ENT a couple years ago who was awful. So happy to have found Dr. Tessema.

Dr. Wycherly is highly competent. He is treating my Meniere's is a highly professional manner. He listens intently. His skill became apparent to me with two steroid injections into the inner ear.

All my childhood and adult life ... I could not breath . My earaches were endless and painful. Dr Wycherly has changed my life for the good. He came up with a comprehensive plan for my surgery. I have never felt so good in my life as I do now. I highly recommend him. Thank Dr... I am forever grateful

I couldn't breathe through my nose, blockage had formed. Previous doctors had failed accurate diagnoses. My new primary recommended Dr. Tessema. Long story short, I'm healed. Tessema's waiting area is neat, comfortable, staff is courteous, professional. Immediately evident was that he's intelligent and seasoned, yet stated his findings, concerns and recommendations in easy to understand terms. He examined me with state of the art equipment, performed the surgery himself. I've never felt better!

Dr. Tessema has complete knowledge of his area of medicine. What makes him special is that he is remarkably compassionate. I was lucky enough to be treated by him while he was still in training. I told him he was going to be the best and I know he is.
