Terrific, attentive,. I'll give him a big A +

I have been with Dr.Tessema since 2011 and have chosen to follow him since he moved to Enterprise from Ozark. I could have continued my care in Ozark which would have been more convenient being the office is only two miles from my residence ... but I value my relationship I've built with Dr.Tessema.... it's been built on honesty and trust... anyone who complains about the wait needs to realize .. you should want "fine dining and not fast food" in your mental health!!! It's worth it!!

Horrible place to go for anyone who proactively cares for their adolescent children. Opposing any of his methods is so offensive you won't be able to continue therapy there at his request for his personal discomfort. I have never been so disappointed with someone I was supposed "trust" to help care for my child's needs.
in Enterprise, AL |
He takes time to listen and seems to truly care about letting you be a part of the treatment plan. He is more than someone to get med refills from. You will not be in and out in 15 minutes when he calls you back. If you have something you need to talk about and get off your chest, he will not rush you. I can not express the level of gratitude I have for Dr. Tessema.

very kind, good listener, gives recommendations

Does excellent work with children. Very pleased with results Takes time with them
Doesn't make you feel uncomfortable. Will ask simple questions but you feel comfortable leading conversation if you want. Will point out tools to help you cope. I have never felt over prescribed or under treated. Third shrink I've seen in 4 years and the best thus far. Only negative: staff. While nice, they present as uneducated and rough in a sense. Don't feel comfortable talking to them about my health.
