Patient Reviews (1)
Canyon Country, CA |
A deeply compassionate, extremely skilfull and knowledgeable, warm and gentle physician. When others were not able to treat my condition, he was. When I needed further surgery, Dr. Teplinsky referred me to another amazing surgeon who accomplished the necessary treatment, when others said they couldn't help me. If it were not for Dr. Teplinsky, I don't think I'd be alive to sing his praises. He has an equally fine office staff and assistants.
