My first experience with Dr. Tellez was 4-25-17. I must say that I was not only pleased with her bedside manner and thoroughness, but also with that of her nurse and everyone that I encountered at her office. What I was most impressed with, is that Dr. Tellez was not running behind (uncommon for most doctors) and I was seen immediately. As a new patient, I was very impressed and will definitely recommend Dr. Tellez to family and friends!

Dr. Tellez is one of the most caring professionals I have encountered. She takes the time to make you understand. She is very compassionate - truly a warm doctor. I will somewhat saddened when I no longer will have to make appointments with her but at the same glad because I know the course of treatment we choose together has worked and I will be cancer free for 5+ years.
