My husband and I are thankful to God for directing us to Dr. Teng eight years ago. Over these eight (8) years Doctor Teng has performed a combined five surgical procedures on my husband and myself. Doctor Teng is the epitome of what a medical professional should be. He is smart, focused and compassionate. He takes the time to explain things and answer any questions or concerns. We would highly recommend Doctor Teng to anyone in need of a great doctor.

I'm an OR nurse in the valley and leave nothing to chance when I shop for a surgeon. I researched the medical board, spoke with colleagues that are MDS and all recommended DR Teng . His staff is top rated, very attentive to my needs as a patient and truly care about my well being. Dr Teng is very strict on his program and sits with you to explain the procedure and really takes the time to make sure you understand everything. He insists on seeing you personally pre/post op . He's the best!!

I had diverticulitis for many years. Going in and out of the ER almost every month in the last year or so. Until Dr. Teng came to my rescue. He had promised my Mom and my wife that he will take care of me and that he will do everything in his power to fix my diverticulitis. May 2016 when i had my colostomy and then Feb 2017 was my reversal. He kept his promise and now i am colostomy free! He was the answer to our prayers. Great dr! And staff is very friendly. I recommend him 100%!

Dr Tang gave me my lumpectomy. He was the dr who told me I had cancer, and he was going to get it out of me. He was kind, patient, and explained everything to me . This was 10 years ago. I remember drifting off to sleep before procedure to his classic rock music. This man along with God has given me 10 plus years with my children. After the margins came back that they hadn't taken enough. He did it again. God bless you and whoever raised and taught a gifted surgeon. Lisa Duran

It's been over 4 years and still losing weight slowly....Great office and Dr. !
in Las Vegas, NV |
I have had 3 different surgeries with this doctor. I had my gallbladder removed. Afterwards, the doctor found a hiatal hernia which was the size of a baseball. No wonder I had awful heartburn. And for many years of lifting heavy objects at work, I developed a hernia. With each surgery I felt very at ease knowing that everyone in the office was going to take care of me. Of course there were money I had to pay as our insurance plans have gotten worst over the years. great experience.
in Las Vegas, NM |
Single incision sleeve gastrectomy. I was told he was the first surgeon who does single incision and robotic surgery. I stayed over night and my incisions look great. because I treated my body so horrible In the past...I now need a gallbladder surgery. It's great this doctor takes the time to explain the surgery. The staff was very supportive. No negative comments. I referred my friends to him.

Knowledgeable, highly-skilled, good bedside manner. Highly recommend.
