Dr. Tessema operated on me four times in a six-month period. In at least two of the operations, I was in critical condition. When I was lucid, he spent time with me and answered all my questions. He even drew very clear diagrams to explain the procedures he was doing. I required time in a rehab facility and there was a disagreement with the rehab people and Dr. Tessema intervened on my behalf. I highly recommend him.
