What People Say About Dr. Joel Teicher, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

I recently had what should have been a routine hysterectomy with Dr. Teicher. Unfortunately, he did not seal my left uterine artery properly, so, a few hours later, my blood pressure plummeted dangerously and I had an emergency CT scan that showed that I was bleeding out into my abdomen and had lost 800ml of blood. The night doctor on call saved my life with emergency surgery and a blood transfusion. Afterward? Not so much as an apology from Dr. Teicher. Avoid at all costs.

He is simply one of the best doctors I have met. He is great at listening the patients concerns. He has always shown to be very courteous and gives excellent service. He is also very friendly. I drove an hour and a half on every prenatal visit but it was worth it. He is one of the few doctors that supported my decision of having a vbac (after two c-sections) I already had three succesful vbacs. He always responded to my calls or emails very promptly. I highly recommend him!

Love Dr. Teicher! He has been my Dr since my first pregnancy and I would highly recommend him to anyone. He was so patient and never made me feel rushed at all, always listened to my concerns and took the time to explain things to me. He would even ask me how things were going in my life and remembered stuff I told him. I feel so comfortable with him and plan on keeping him as my Dr as long as I can!
