Worst surgeon ever,left too much cement in my partial knee replacement, wore off the coating on my ligament,cement rolling around dried blood,for a year and a half,went to new surgeon who had to do a total knee replacement and put a screw in from Teeney damage.have had two surgery so since leaving Puget sound.Never even received a call or apology from Teeney..RUDE ARROGANT DR.

I'm living in tremendous pain right now because of this jerk. He's got an ego the size of Texas
Puyallup, WA |
Dr. Teeny's office cancelled my appointment this morning while I was sitting in the waiting room. I have waited for this appointment for OVER 2 months, and all they have to say is "sorry".
in Tacoma, WA |
Dr. Teeny is a gifted doctor but his billing department is worse than awful...Every visit they messed up. He really needs to find a better billing supervisor. If you use Dr. Teeny you should expect to spend hours on the phone with billing... The doctor also uses military interns, avoid those like the plague. They are not him, you are paying top dollar for his care not to be a practice dummy for interns
