I highly recommend Dr Kteleh as he is very knowledgeable, kind, caring and understanding. I trust him in prescribing the right medicine for me, and I know if I have questions or concerns he will answer me. When I first saw him I was in so much pain and could barely walk. Once he prescribed me the right medication, I am feeling and doing so much better now. He keeps a close eye on me with running blood tests and does not hesitate to make any adjustments as needed. Thank you Dr. Kteleh

Overall, my experience with Dr. Kteleh has been disappointing. While he did provide me with a diagnosis and medicine that helps, he spends minimal time with me. This last visit was maybe 5 minutes. He’s kind, but he seems generally uninterested. His staff is also kind and honestly my favorite part of every visit. However, it has been impossible to get a hold of his office. I really tried to give him the benefit of doubt, but the communication is lacking. For me, good doctors make you feel cared for and important. Unfortunately, I did not feel this way with Dr. Kteleh.

Dr. Kteleh did not provide quality care for my disease. He spent minimal time in the room with me in diagnosing and explaining the onset of my RA diagnosis. I was in extreme pain and was given no hope and minimal treatment. Not to mention I was in the waiting room each time I went for no less than 2 hours each time (for 5 minutes with the doc). The final straw was on my last visit I asked him how long the treatment would take before I started feeling better and as he was walking out the door, he nonchalantly said “2-3 years” leaving me hopeless and confused. I did go to another rheumatologist out of town and have received proper treatment For what I found out was severe RA, and am well on my way to remission. Just beware of this doc’s Terrible manners.

Uncaring, always on phone. Always late, always rescheduling appointments, medical assistant is not very knowledgeable, manager does not return phone calls and does not send out bills and then threatens to send you to Colection because you haven’t paid your bill
