Dr Telesford is the best!! I would highly recommend him
in Ridgefield, CT |
My daughter has a very lengthy and complicated medical history. Stroke, brain surgery, epilepsy and the list goes on. Through the years we have seen numerous doctors and specialists. My daughter recently moved into Chapel Haven, and needed a local doctor for the 2 years she would be residing there. Within 5 minutes of meeting him, I knew my daughter was seeing the BEST doctor we've ever seen in her 19 years. I was just blown away by his thoroughness and by how much he CARES! Truly exceptional!

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....
