    Dr T is above exceptional. Our family has known him for 6 years while dealing with my son's addiction. He is the most knowledgeable of any doctors I've met about addiction and will not prescribe anything addictive for my son. He has made himself available anytime we've needed him aand I truly believes he care. He is the one bright spot in this awful illness. We preferred walk in appts but understand the need to schedule beforehand

    Doctor Telesford knows his stuff.... I gave a 4 because the wait can be a little lengthy but that may be because of how thorough and how the doc takes time to know his patients... good "bed mannerism"....
