Dr. Tesfaye was pleasant and patient. This was my first visit but Dr. Tesfaye listened intently to all my complaints and I never felt rushed. Although I came in for an acute issue we also discussed my chronic complaints. After a fairly long visit I have every confidence that he will get to an accurate diagnosis with out simply treating my symptoms as most of my physicians have. I have renewed optimism that I may finally get some relief from what has been affecting the quality of my life for quite some time. I really like him!

I would highly recommend Dr. Tesfaye. I was having horrible anxiety and headaches when I went to see him. He immediately made me feel at ease with his friendly demeanor. His assistant also helped to comfort and ease my anxiety during the visit. He gave me a sample of medication for anxiety and within 2 weeks my constant headaches were gone.

I took my son to see Dr Tesfaye and the visit was amazing. It's not enough space for me to say how amazing the staff is as well. I recommend this office to anyone who have a love one or themselves to this office. He is honest and he will explain everything to the fullest enough for you to understand.

I am extremely grateful for Dr. Tesfaye, he saw my nephew who sustained a brain trauma injury back in February. Dr. Tesfaye answered all my questions, and was very informative. He gave me hope for my nephew's continued progression. He was realistic and honest. His staff was warm and accommodating. I rest assured knowing Dr. Tesfaye has my nephew's best interest in mind. I feel we are on this journey to recovery together. Going Forward I will refer anyone looking for a great neurologist.
