Visalia, CA |
Such a rude physician, he barreled into the office like a bull in a china shop. He was condescending, I must have repeated myself at one point and he said "Yah, I know, you said that already." He was very rough, he hurt my throat when doing an examination. He had me look up while he held my tongue and pushed on my throat. When he saw me grimace, he said he was sorry. I will not be back nor will I refer him.

Careless doctor Unable to do biopsies correctly Unable to diagnose. After tumor grew large enough and invaded my entire nose and oral cavity, he transferred me to Stanford university.

How fortunate I was to have had Dr. Teitelbaum called in at hospital a few years back. He saved my life. I had a very unfortunate life threatening experience before I finally saw him. . He was wonderful to me and my family seeing us through this ordeal. I believe I would not be here today writing this review if it were not for him. I cannot thank him enough! With SINCERE GRATITUDE!

Went in to have wax cleaned out of my inner ears as I normally do every 2-3 years. This guy was the rudest physician I have ever met. He was evidently having a bad day and took it out on me. When he cleaned my ears, he did it so aggressively that he caused pain and bleeding. I have never had that happen before. All the while he railed against the Affordable Care Act, which I support. I attempted to change doctors, even getting a referral, but the clinic would not allow it.

Had an amazing, easy-going experience getting my tonsils removed. The staff was courteous and informative. The surgery was successful, and I was prescribed analgesics appropriately. Dr. Teitelbaum's services are excellent.

Went in for a routine office visit because I needed a prescription refill. When I received my bill my insurance, the Doctor charged me $300 because looking into my nose was considered a 'surgical' procedure. When I disputed the bill, they said there was nothing they would do and I owed the money. I will definitely be looking for another doctor.

Had stapes ear surgery with Dr Ben Teitelbaum as the surgeon. It was totally unsuccessful. He told my wife after the surgery he should have abandoned the surgery as he had great difficulty in even reaching the stapes bone. The surgery took two and one half hours and should have taken half the amount of time. Suffered a hearing loss as a result of the surgery.
