Excellent Dr. He gives such complete answers, and cares about each question asked. He is very knowledgeable about all aspects of the neck surgery I had to have. I trust him completely. I have referred him and will continue to as I trust him with my health. Thank you Dr Teja.

Dr.Teja is a wonderful doctor. He is very thorough and make sure that you understand everything. HE showed me my MRI and explained everything to my. I am to my second appointment and my husband came late but he took and he took his time made sure we had all of our questions answered. He even took the time to reshow the models and explain the fusion. I have had 1 other back surgery and he is the 3 doctor I have seen in the past 7 yrs and I like him much much more then the other 2.

Never go to this man. I was sent to him with some neuro issues; Dr. Teja was extremely rude and uncaring. He said that I might have MS and requested I get an MRI, i received the MRI and when I went back in for my results he told me that it was not MS and that I was free to go. A year and a half later with the same issues I now find out I could have another neurological issue. Dr. Teja did care enough to look into the other options, he dismissed me and left me feeling hurt and confused. DO NOT GO

When I went in for a follow up review of an MRI he did not know why I was scheduled for the appointment, and the total visit was approximately only 10-minutes. Very short and impersonal with his office demeanor.
