I have actually seen Dr. Tefef for Twelve years. She is the best, really. I am a twelve year breast cancer survivor. I feel as though I am taking her time, but there is never the thought on her end. She truly is the best.

She will no longer schedule return visits on the day receive chemo infusions causing the patient to visit the office more frequently, no bueno!
