Specialties

Dr. Eric S Teller has the following 2 specialties

  • Pulmonary Disease

    A pulmonologist is a physician who specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of conditions related to the lungs and respiratory tract.
    These specialists are similar to critical care specialists in that their patients often require mechanical ventilation to assist their breathing.
    Pulmonologists diagnose and treat patients with conditions such as asthma, cystic fibrosis, asbestosis, pulmonary fibrosis, lung cancer, COPD, and emphysema. Exposure and inhalation of certain toxic substances may also warrant the services of a pulmonologist.
    Some of the tools and tests pulmonologists use to diagnose a patient are a stethoscope in order to listen for abnormal breathing sounds, chest X-rays, CT scans, blood tests, bronchoscopy, and polysomnography.

  • Geriatric Medicine

    A geriatric specialist is a physician who treats the elderly population and the conditions that most commonly affect them. These doctors have special training in the effects of aging on the body and mind of a patient.
    Geriatric specialists treat common ailments faced by senior citizens, such as frailty, incontinence, memory problems, arthritis, senility, decreased functioning and more.
    In addition, geriatric specialists keep abreast of the different medications that an elderly person is prescribed to treat their more complex health issues in order to decrease adverse side effects and avoid dangerous drug interactions.

Four Stars

Although I haven't been examined by Dr. Teller, he spent a lot of time on the phone reassuring me what is the best option to treat my issues without me being in the office. Sounds like a very good guy and he made me feel that I would be all right and this is not seeing him just being on the phone sounded like he knows his stuff and an interest in my care

Definitely NOT recommended

Very disappointed in this doctor. Hard to get an appt. Long waits in the very crowded waiting room --at least one hour. Dr. Teller can be abrupt and not very helpful. I complained about not being able to breathe properly (following serious pneumonia) and being constantly out of breath -- and after doing some in-office tests, he said he didn't know why and made NO recommendations. I am now about to see another doctor. In addition, it's impossible to reach a live person in the office. Lastly, he recommended two dentists to me b/c I have sleep apnea and needed a dental device -- both seemed like complete ripoffs, and would not even give me a price for the device.

Great physician but staff leaves much to be desired

The front desk staff could be a lot more couteous and attentive. I've heard sarcastic remarks made to patients while I was in waiting area. Also, almost impossible to get a live person on the phone when you call.

Typically 2.5+ hour wait in office after time of appointment. Friendly and bright. Difficult to get through to office staff on phone.

I am unsure about this doctor. He seems annoyed if you ask questions and needs a better bedside manner.
