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 with the results. His procedures I liked better than the other two doctors I had interviewed, and his office dealt with my insurance company, so it was no hassle for me. He answers all of your questions.

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!

I've been going to Dr. Tegt for 4 years and he has been great! He has helped so much with my chronic sinus infections and getting my allergies under control. I would highly recommend Dr. Tegt to anyone!!
Probably a good surgeon but horrible bedside manner. Does not explain things barely talks to you, very short with answers to your questions, dismissive. Would never recommend to anyone.

Took my 3 year old to see him to assess her need for tubes (to address repeat ear infections), and he was horrible with her. Worst bedside manner ever. Should not work with children--he did not speak to her at all and was very rough when examining her. She was terrified.
