Dr Tejpar is a a great doctor and wonderful listener. She was very thorough about my knee and offered a list of options. Thank you very much.

Reviewed on Aug 10, 2020

The Dr did recognize that they had slinger the wrong elbow and corrected that. However regarding my knee which was so bad now I couldn't stand on it she decided not to treat it until she could see an MRI which she sent me downstairs to schedule. At that time the scheduler told me it would be 2 weeks before I could get an MRI. I couldn't get out of my wheelchair or walk so I had to go back to the ED. do 2 days at the clinic and still no treatment of my knee and now I'm unable to stand or walk

I started clearance for rotator cuff surgery which was suggested by an orthopedic surgeon outside your facility. Things were happening too fast so I requested an appointment for a second opinion. I got the appointment the same day 8/8/2020 and Dr Tejpar who referred me to Dr Sabesan the next week. She went over my MRI in detail and I decided surgery can wait.

my current condition is slightly unusual and did not fall into Dr's specialty. Left me guessing and needing another appointment with the surgical Dr. This of course delayed my diagnosis and treatment. However, Dr Tejpar was professional and caring.

This doctor can't do all I need. Wish she could. She is wonderful Really cares, really communicates well. My gynecologist is good. But I have found other doctors not to be as caring and respectful, or as good a listener as Dr. Tejpar. And Dr. Tejpar knows her stuff! Always a good experience with Dr. Tejpar.

Reviewed on Jun 22, 2020

The employee who scheduled my appointment was fantastic! I wish I remembered her name, but she helped me find a doctor on my insurance that specializes in my type of injury. She also helped me with questions about faxing MRI results and directions. She was great!

Reviewed on Jun 22, 2020

This issue with my ailment is inflamation and PAIN. I requested an opiate for VERY INFREQUENT use because IT WORKS for my pain. Your operation & Dr.'s treats these requests like the patient is a drug abuser. These products DO work for my situation. Yes, they're addictive to certain individuals but not myself. I feel I didn't get the service I required for my co-pay. Completely worthless. I would request a follow up with the Department Head to discuss with me.
