Patient Comments (13)

Dr. Tesser is awesome. He took the time to listen, and then was willing to try different alternative treatments until he found one that worked.

Dr. Tesser is knowledgeable and efficient. He does not beat around the bush, which I find refreshing.

Staff is inefficient. You never see anyone but the physicians assistant, but still pay specialist prices. Unable to get call backs for appointments. Won’t do diagnosis or do any tests without numerous visits. Look elsewhere if you are in pain and need help.

Tesser is avery smart Dr. Yet has no tact when speaking to a regular person. He needs to remember as a patient we are not trained drs. If we were we most likely would not be there. Also when they (anyone in the practice) mess up they do not own up to it. I had to have an er visit and tests done...more

It's very strange because you send about 80% of the visit with the physicians assistant, and then he goes and gets Dr. Tesser who only stays for a little bit. There is a lot of waiting involved too. But Dr. Tesser does seem very knowledgeable and he's pretty nice.
