Dr. Tessier and their entire staff are phenomenal. I have had my share of doctors and worked with many. I have referred my family, friends and patient's to Dr. Tesseier and his Group. I was blessed to have the best of the best with Dr. Tessier. Including all his staff. Everyone is professional and personal.. The situation is a win win.!
in Chesterfield, MO |
After seeing three other surgeons, who all wanted to replace my knee, I was referred to Dr. Tessier, around 6 years ago. He has kept me going with minimal pain without any surgery. I won't trust my joints to anyone else. Please don't ever retire Dr Tessier.
in Ballwin, MO |
I have absolute trust and confidence in Dr. Tessier to friends, family, or anyone needing an orthopedic surgeon. My case was difficult at best and I trusted him completely.
in St Louis, MO |
Dr. Tressier has performed a left hip replacement and a total right knee replacement for me. I would recommend him to any one considering this type of surgery. His explanations, caring, and compassion are above reproach. He takes time to listen to questions and explain in easy to understand terms what is going to happen or what needs to be done. He is not surgery first doctor either. If there are other options he will explain them as well. I would not consider any one else.
in St Louis, MO |
Dr. Tessier was warm and welcoming. He was not the typical doctor who is in a "rush" as he took the time to explain everything, AND, answer questions. He also exhibits genuine concern and I would not hesitate to recommend his services to anyone. I am at the 3 month post surgery point and from a "results" perspective I could not be happier with my total knee replacement.
in St Louis Mo |
Easy to talk to. Good listener. Excellent referrals which guided me to him. Very happy with surgery results. Will have him do my R TKR as well. Kept me well informed at all times.
