    He is a very good surgeon. But, he lacks in the communication aspect. At the follow-up many people were waiting. I came on time for my appointment and he came an hour later. A lady waited almost 2 hours for him. The staff was okay. Overall, he is okay. I would not recommend him though.

    He is a great surgeon and person. After another surgeon caused alot of problems for me he was very kind and did my next surgery, which was needed because of the previous surgeon. He has done a few surgeries for me and each time was a good experience.

    Dr. Teehan spends an adequate amount of time assessing the reason for your visit. He does not spend too much time beyond that scope. He is knowledgeable and thorough. He does not indulge unnecessary worry, but explains what should be considered and ordered appropriate tests to assess and fully diagnosis the problem.
