in Rockford, IL |
Dr Telfer is amazing!!! He is sooo smart and was able to PROPERLY diagnose my cardiac condition. He is kind and straight forward and conservative with his treatments (phew). His is a true medical expert on EP and is highly respected throughout the Midwest. Went to a dr in chicago for oncology and told him who my cardiologist was and he told me TELFER is the best. Hard to get into, because of pt demand, but worth the wait, family man who can relate to my life and health concerns
