Dr. Tessier is an absolutely amazing doctor! He took wonderful care of me. I highly recommend him. He is kind, patient, highly intelligent and extremely experienced and skilled at what he does. He takes his time and goes over everything in a very professional manor and always answers any questions you may have. He did an outstanding job on my knee surgery and I cannot thank him enough. The entire office staff and his nurse are very professional as well. Dr. Tessier is definitely the doctor you want to go with.

Dr. Tessier was called out ( on a holiday) to repair my fractured hip. The surgery was successful and the follow up care has been top notch. Dr. Tessier is very kind, professional, respectful and personable. He never seems hurried, answers any concerns or questions…always with a smile. (His assistant is always friendly and efficient as are the x-Ray techs and front office.) Me and my family would rate the Dr. a 10. God Bless him.

I was a new patient to Dr. Tessier. I was greeted by a young lady name Sammi. She had a big smile and a great personality. Dr. Tessier listened to my concerns and was very caring. I highly recommend him to patients in need. #Coolboots

Thank you for leaving a review for Dr. Tessier...Read More
We brought our son to see Dr. Tessier for a medial epicondyle stress fracture on his throwing elbow. Dr. Tessier explained in detail the extent of the injury and thoroughly answered all of our questions. He developed a treatment plan to help him move towards recovery so that he can be back on the field next year. We have seen Dr. Tessier several times over the last few years for arm, shoulder & foot injuries. Each time, he went above and beyond anything I have ever seen from a physician. He will forever be the Orthopedic Doctor for my family.

Excellent Doctor. He has reworked both my knees and a foot on my son. He is extremely thorough and is always looking to make the patient comfortable. He also is aware that medical treatment is not cheap, so he is open to assist in finding the best prices for labs and X-rays. I recommend him if you have pain.

Magnolia, TX – May 07, 2018
My daughter had been suffering for years with hip pain. We had taken her to NUMEROUS doctors and NONE could give a diagnosis/treatment that relieved the pain. We were finally sent to Dr. Tessier (after seeing another orthopedic doctor two years prior). He examined her and immediately thought she had a torn hip labrum. He scheduled an MRI with contrast ( prior doctor had not). He called me personally and told me he was right! He did the surgery the next day! She’s been pain free since!

Gena Cranford in Birmingham – Apr 25, 2018
Doctor Tessier is one of the most talented orthopedic surgeons in the country. His experience in dealing with high end athletes in particular makes him an expert. He is on the front edge of new procedures and pushes the athlete to come back much quicker than previous rehab techniques. He explains the surgery and what he is doing so it is easy to understand. Bottom line is you can not find a better orthopedic surgeon in the country. Plus the staff at the hospital was the most friendly staff!!
