Dr. Teslow has saved my life a couple times honestly. He is such a caring doctor, and he follows thru with everything and doesn't miss nothing. I can't say enough good about him. I was sick 15 years ago and the hospital didn't even know what it was, they referred me to him and he knew almost instantly and has been my surgeon every since.

Dr. Teslow became involved with my wife's treatment less than a month ago. My wife has been suffering from stomach pain and burning for many years. She has seen numerous physicians over the years and none had found any causes for her pain. Dr. Teslow reviewed past colonoscopies and endoscopes and found things the other doctors had missed. He truly cares about his patients and is proactive in finding the cause of the problems presented him.

I believe Dr. Teslow is the best Dr. I've had take care of my medical needs in 45 years. I felt comfortable with him from the first meeting. No unnecessary tests were preformed. He stayed on top of my care before, during and after surgery. Brilliant, caring and easy to talk to. Years of knowledge and experience. I was lucky to find him and finally have a pain free future thanks to him.

I was beyond impressed with Dr. Teslow, his staff, and the Surgery Center of Fairbanks. All of the staff were very helpful, kind, and made sure I was taken care of. Dr. Teslow did an excellent job explaining my options, making sure I understood them, and most importantly, performing the surgery. He far exceeded my expectations. All around great experience. Thank you!
