What People Say About Dr. Ruth Tessler, MD

Dr Tessler is an excellent diagnostician and an incredible surgeon. She is not the most warm and fuzzy doctor, but her skills more than compensate for that, in my opinion. I had surgery with her this year and what was supposed to be a routine fibroid removal surgery (robotic laparoscopic myomectomy) turned into a far more complicated operation. I have healed remarkably well and was impressed by Dr Tessler's performance. Aside from the expected discomfort of recovery, I have felt almost no pain.

I absolutely love Dr Tessler! She is friendly, professional and very knowledgable. I, personally, do not like to play around when it comes to my health and Dr Tessler's no nonsense approach is exactly what I look for in my care team. I highly recommend her to any woman dealing with uterine issues.

I was referred to Dr. Tessler after a long time of heavy bleeding, numerous surgeries. I was at the point where I made the decision to have a hysterectomy (i have one child) than to continue with these never-ending issues (fibroids, endometriosis, cysts, adhesions, nonstop bleeding, etc). Dr. Tessler performed my surgery via Da Vinci method, and I can say 1 yr later that it was a success. Not only is she a skilled surgeon, but very easy to talk to and extremely patient, kind. Highly recommend.

I asked Dr.Tessler for a new type of oral contraceptive over the phone given a new and significant change in my medical history. I couldn't speak with her directly but was told by her secretary that she knows and is taking that into consideration. After picking up my new BC that Dr. Tessler chose for me I did my own research. As it turns out, Dr. Tessler gave a potentially harmful type of BC given my condition. I've lost all trust and couldn't recommend her to anyone. They also over charge you
