Lousy office staff. My primary care physician sent a referral. it took his office over two weeks or respond to me and then called to tell me that they have decided not to take any more patients from blue Cross blue shield of Texas. All the while I've been waiting along with my orthopedic surgeon for this office visit so I can get surgery done on my back which is much needed due to the fact I'm in great pain. This office cared little about that I just wasted over two weeks of my life and now I'm going to have to wait weeks to be able to get into another neurosurgeon thanks a lot Dr Tesfa !

Best Neurologist by far that i have come across in 30 plus years. He talks to you, he listens to you, He does not order any unnecessary tests, he is on point and precise. He does not rush you, gives you all the needed time and attention. If you are a person living with epilepsy, stop searching and make your appointment now. Awesome Doctor.

Dr. Tefsa has been treating my extensive spinal damage with severe neuropathy for several years. He is very kind, thoughtful and careful. His tests and follow up visits are very focused and detailed. He addresses my concerns completely and doesn't try to hurry our visits. He has a great personality which is a very thing when you have life changing injuries. His staff is very thoughtful and nice. I would not hesitate to recommend him. Based on my experience I can't understand the negative reviews

HORRIBLE Neurologist!!!!!!! And office staff!!!! My husband had a seizure and got admitted through the ER. Dr. Tesfa was on call. Didn’t even come to see him in the hospital. Made us wait another day to read EEG because he had already left the hospital making my husband stay another night in the hospital. Had to go to his office and demand the EEG be read. My husband continues to have seizures. Does not want to see him for 6 months despite ongoing issues. Husband has cancer. Dr is unethical

I see Dr. Tesfa for my Parkinson's disease. He gave me a very thorough exam and explained a lot about my condition and what I could expect from the medicine. I've been seeing his nurse practitioner, Amy Lewis, for my last few visits. I like Amy a lot. She talks on my level and tells me what exercises I should and should not do. I have not experienced extremely long wait times.

I am glad I was referred to Dr. Tesfa for my lumbar spine problem. The office staff is very friendly and Dr. Tesfa is professional and took the time to investigate my trouble. The doctor reviewed my MRI with me and explained the findings as he pointed out the problems shown on the MRI screen view. The office visit was efficient and the subsequent referral appointments were made seemlessly.

Worst Neurologist Ever. Doesn't listen or try to find the source of the problem, just pushes meds, meds and more meds. Lied on visit report, said "patient doing well" which was SO wrong. Was he not listening during the appointment??? Asked him to fill out FMLA paperwork, charges $80 just to fill it out. Then refused because I questioned another medication. If your problem is too complicated, he's not interested. Don't waste your time or money here. Time for him to retire.

He ignored my symptoms and everything I said and just wanted to push a migraine diagnosis. I went to other specialists and found out I have an autoimmune condition. I can't imagine the problems his meds would have caused me if I had followed his recommendations. If you have a migraine or think you might, then maybe go to him (even though he doesn't listen, has a terrible bedside manner, and his staff is rude too)--but if you don't think you have a migraine, go eslewhere.

i have a brain tumor, and it's hard to find someone good in this area. I certainly wouldn't recommend this guy. Very cold and uncaring.

Dr saw my mother while she was in the hospital. His bed side manner is terrible. I work in healthcare and I've never experienced a consultation like we did. My mom felt embarrassed, stupid and confused afterwards. He wasn't compassionate at all. We will be getting a second opinion. I would send anyone I know to him.

He himself is a decent doctor. Problem is more staff, scheduling and time management. No communication when doctor is running late. Waited almost 2 hours past appointment time just to get to wait in exam room to wait some more. My mother suffers from Dementia and got real worked up while waiting in the small exam room after an hour and 30 in the waiting room. No concern or communication shown by staff. A little would have gone a long way. This is the second doctor from that group we tried.
