Reassuring and to the point, but slow on follow-up

I like how Dr. Tekola focuses on promoting a healthy lifestyle, and doesn't prescribe medications unnecessarily. He's always been reassuring after making a diagnosis, and leaves me with peace of mind afterwards. However, I will say that the office is very slow to send claims; still waiting on a referral I requested over 2 months ago... Even so, I'm overall satisfied with this doctor.

a very bad doctor

I went to this doctor with serious symptoms. He told me to go home and drink water. After a lot to questions that I had he finally agree to send me to a laboratory. Fortunately, I was right. Only after this he called me and sent a prescription for antibiotics to the pharmacy.

Five Stars

I have seen the doctor for over two years and believe he is caring and compassionate. He is intelligent, to the point and always advocate healthy life style. It hard to get a good doctor like him with with a Medical and Medicare insurance. He is very strict when it comes to prescribing pain medication. If you are looking for narcotics, that is not a place to go. It seems like he is overwhelmed by the patients seeking for drugs. The cons; Hard to get appointment. If you need to be seen right away, ER or urgent cares are your best options
