Dr Telfeian is my angel here on earth! He is a very compassionate surgeon and person and very skilled. I went from non functional for a long time to walking and working within 3 weeks of my surgery. I would highly recommend Dr T!

...as I was saying, but my review cut off for some reason... On my second visit to the pain center the DR. looks me right in the eyes and says "I can't prescribe you opiates, I see nothing on your imaging." I say, "thats fine I don't want opiates, I want some treatment that will help me get better." She says, "well I'm sorry there is nothing we can do for you." I really have to wonder what the heck Telfian told them on my referal.

He looked over my imaging with me for 10 minutes then said I don't see anything I can do for you (I'm fine with that), but then he proceded to go on to give me a lecture on how all of the healthcare providers, I've been to, are good smart doctors he'd send his own family to... That's all well and good, but I've been to all of them, and I'm still suffering. He didn't offer up anything to help me get releif from this pain, which is what I need.

In 2004 I was involved in an ATV accident in Clovis NM. Dr. Telfeian did my craniotomy, managed my ICP, and my medically induced coma. I recovered after rehabilitation and was able to become a fire fighter. Because of his care and professionalism, I was able to pay it back and save lives also. Thank you so much sir. I am forever grateful.

Doctor Telfeian is a skilled surgeon, with his level of expertise matched only by his humility. As a father and a professional, he understands every level of nervousness coupled with something as serious as brain surgery, and goes out of his way to ensure the greatest level of comfort and reassurance the patient needs. Doctor Telfeian shares a very personal relationship with his patients and does everything in his power to adjust conditions for the patient's needs.
