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.

New patient paperwork took a while to complete. The receptionist and nurse were very polite and professional. The Doctor listened to what was going on and took care of the issue in a professional manner.

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.

I went to Dr. Teeter and she gave me an injection in my knee after we discussed my condition and pain level. I plan a follow up visit with her to make sure my pain and knee is treated in a few weeks. She was very nice and listened to my concerns. Her staff was very friendly made me feel at ease.

Dr Teeter was very upfront and honest as well as punctual and even got the results from tests ahead of time. The office staff was thorough and courteous. When you have a loved one in pain these are characteristics that are very important.

Within 3 weeks of my initial visit my knee surgery was done and over. I had a meniscus tear fixed, and from the time I woke up from anasthesia I’ve had zero pain. I quit taking pain meds the day after. I highly recommend Dr. Teeter. She did a great job.
