I don’t need someone to hold my hand, just fix my son’s chronic ear infections! Dr. Tegt answered all my questions, and had my little guy giggling about Minions while he examined him. He was very aware and considerate about his pain level, I don’t know what that previous reviewer was talking...more

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.
