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.
