Do not go to this guy! He removed an abcess from my throat and never let the anesthesia do it's job before he went in to cut it out. Worst pain of my life.

Yeah, he can be a little abrupt. But he's a great doctor! The scientific mind can sometimes not have the warm-fuzzy turned on, and he does exude an alpha-male discipline in building his practice, but he did my son's tonsils twenty years ago, and he did my sinuses this summer, and I'm very happy...more

I have 3 boys that have all had surgeries with Dr. Tegt. I think he is great & to the point. He checked on the boys and was very informative. He's done 2 sets up tubes and 3 tonsil and adenoid removals on my boys.

I've had nothing but positive interactions with Dr. Tegt. This is true for myself and my 2 year old daughter. After explaining things, always asks if there are questions. Personally called me about my CT results the same day of the test. Very impressed!
