I have never had a experience like this one.! It has bothered me so much that several years later, I am now stopping to write a review. When he first came in the room he was verbally abrupt and curt. When looking up my nose he held the instrument so tight on the other nostril, it hurt. Then he yelled at me several times for being tense, yet with the pain level, I was unable to relax. After which he sprayed some kind of chemical treatment into my nasal cavity and gave it an extra hefty dose. As a result my face swelled up for 2 days and it hurt. He appeared to be nervous or anxious and I am not sure why, as I was trying to cooperate. When I called at the end of the first day, stating my concern for the swelling, I was questioned as if I didn't know how I was feeling or knew how to evaluate the results. The treatment he provided was not effective for more than several years, so it looks like I am back at the drawing board, but this time I will find a doctor who will treat me carefully when I'm examined.
Reading all the negative reviews kindda scared me at first but so far I've had nothing but good office appts and so far a good surgery. He seems to be very knowledgeable in the area I had a problem with. He has always been very pleasant and soft spoken and he smiles. Based on my experience so far, I'd recommend him to family and friends
Had my tonsils out. Dr. T did a great job. Surgical staff was incredible. BUT the follow up by the office staff, particularly RenÃ©e, was inexcusable. I had to go into the offixed after a night in the ER and I felt as I'd I was bothering her. Come to find out, without her help or access to the dr. I had a massive sinus infection. Could have fixed it days earlier than detection if RenÃ©e was willing to listen and assist in my recovery. I will Not recommend this office to anyone because of her and her poor disposition toward me, a patient in need.
I had a very pleasant experience with Dr. Teiltelbaum. I was able to schedule an appointment within one day at Central California Ear, Nose, and Throat, and that appointment happened to be with Dr. Teiltelbaum. I had a growth in my nose and was about to go back to work (I'm a teacher). He examined me, and given he did not have anyone else waiting, he was able to remove the growth on the same visit. He was very professional, listened to me, and I would go back to him again.
We are patients at this doctors clinic. Our daughter had a serious throat inflammation that was affecting her breathing but they would only give us an appointment that was 3 months out. They said if she stopped breathing go to the ER! While at the office for an appoint with another type of doctor my wife saw Mr Teitelbaum and asked if he could just glance in my daughters throat because she was very worried. He looked at her with anger and she said please just 2 seconds. He responded "I don't have two seconds, I have 3 patients to see that are paying". But he didn't just leave it with his rude response, he then called for security to escort her out of the building!! I understand doctors are busy, but when a very worried parent asks about a potentially life threatening condition a doctor can at least turn down the request with some compassion and dignity. This man is no doctor. Would not see if I were dying.
