Doctor Telfer is one of the smartest physicians I have ever encountered. As physician myself I was told that there was no one better in Illinois to see other than dr. Telfer, and now I see why. Smart, efficient and helpful in my care. I’m beyond grateful for his care.

My first appointment with Dr. Telfer was excellent. He allowed plenty of time and went over my condition with me thoroughly. I live here part time residing in Az 6 months of the year . I was afraid I could not find as good of Cardiologist here in Rockford area . Thankfully I have ! He also was very kind and reassuring. Looking forward to my second appointment this September.
