When I found out about my tumor, I met with 3 surgeons and I easily chose Dr. Tessler. He patiently explained everything about my condition and what I could expect with surgery. Melissa couldn't have been more helpful in helping me arrange things. Lauren was great the day of surgery and following up. Dr. Tessler is a kind, caring surgeon. I wouldn't put my brain in anyone else's capable hands. He warmly greets us and gave a prompt update to my family after surgery. He cares and it shows. I can't thank him enough for helping me and making me feel so comfortable throughout the process. Thank you Dr. Tessler and your wonderful staff!
Dr. Tessler's care was excellent. The first time I met him I was impressed that he took the time to come to me in the hospital on Labor Day. He told me that he had seen all my tests and knew what procedure would be best for me. He operated a few days later and I am happy to say I recovered and I am back at work and feeling very well. Of course, I would recommend Dr. Tessler and I already have.
Dr. Tessler and his staff are very friendly, very well organized and professional.when it came to my needs as his patient it was like one of there own family member. He kept on top of my tumor and when it was time to be removed Dr Tessler and asst. and his staff we on top and spoke to me and my daughter. while the surgery his staff called my family and let them know how it was going and after surgery he went down and spoke to them. Thank Dr Tessler your number one in my eyes
