Dr Teacher is a great caring professional. Takes the time to talk with you and explain options and suggest alternative solutions. May run a bit late as he continues the discussion until he and you are satisfied that everything is understood.

Dr. Teacher is one of the least helpful physicians I have encountered. I went to him with neurological disorders affecting my ability to walk. After several sessions with Dr. Teacher I know nothing more than I knew when I first met with him. Also, his encounter notes are not available. His office told me the notes were not available because he does not transcribe them as an economy measure. See another neurologist.

Diagnosis, evaluation and treatment for neck (in 2004) and spine (in 2015) prior to eventual surgery. Friendly, easy going attitude with clear and concise explanations. Does not rush you and takes all the time you need to answer questions.
