Dr Teeter was excellent with me. I am terrified of needles so when said she was giving me an injection to my shoulder I started to panic. Dr Teeter put me at ease and administered that shot like a ro!

Prompt attention from staff, quickly saw Dr. Teeter. She was patient and listened to my issues. Offered several courses of treatment and recommended one. In spite of my anxiety, treatment was quick with minimal discomfort. Took the time with my visit and I would highly recommend this professional and her staff. Dr. Teeter is the standard for others to meet.

This was an initial consultation for me and my chronic rotator cuff partial tear/pain. Dr. Teeter was very thorough in her questioning as to duration and activities. We went through the "push against my hand," and "does this hurt" exercises to validate and pinpoint the injury site. Next up is an MRI to determine the exact extent and treatment plan. Dr. Teeter is very personable and easy to talk to.

I am very pleased with my visits with Dr. Teeter first for my shoulder and then I broke my knee cap. I didn't have to wait long for an appointment or to be seen when I went for my visit. Dr. Teeter and her staff is so nice and professional. They make you forget that you are in pain. I highly recommend anyone who needs orthopedic care.

I went to Dr. Teeter to be treated for a shoulder injury. The front desk attendants X Ray Tech were very attentive and courteous. Dr. Teeter explained my diagnosis and recommended a treatment which seems to be working quite well. I'd highly recommend her to any patient suffering from pain in the joints or muscles.

No long wait in the waiting room. Dr. Teeter welcomed me, listened to all I had to say, gave me options for treatment. I chose the one I wanted. Dr Teeter spoke clearly and loud enough for me to hear her. Great for people who are hard of hearing. I was very impressed with Dr Teeter, I am glad to have found her.

I've been a patient of Dr Teeter for about 8 months. After the first visit my shoulder pain was reduced dramatically - so dramatically that my husband is now Dr Teeter's patient. We love Dr Teeter and highly recommend her and her friendly office staff.

Dr. Teeter is professional, listens and offers appropriate suggestions for treatment. She operated on my shoulder, and she did everything she said she would do. At this time I'm still recovering, and I feel positive that I will heal well. Dr. Teeter and her staff have been great with the after surgery and recovery instructions. I've been able to get back to see the Dr. for follow-up and seems all is going as expected. All staff are very pleasant and helpful.

One very cautious Doctor and extremely careful to use all areas to eliminate all possibilities. Pleased with the outcome even that it at the time, it seemed to me, the time it took from the first meeting till the time of the operation was longer than I would have wanted it to take. Eliminating all of the possibilities was a good thing and very productive. Great job and thanks for the experience. You seem to know what to do and are well versed in what you do.
