Negative Comments

I only saw Dr. Tessler once and found her bedside manner/personality to be quite abrupt. But I thought I'd stick with her, as that didn't mean she was a bad clinician. Most recently I called her service after hours because I had a UTI and needed a prescription called in to my pharmacy. I got a call back from the service (not her) to say she was "not available" and that it would have to be called in in the morning and someone from the office would call me. I couldn't get them to clarify if she picked up the call and told them she was not available, or if she just never picked up the call from the answering service at all. Either way, it's not good. Then, nobody called me the next morning. I finally called at 11:00 AM and after a long hunt down for some sort of answer, was told the nurse wanted me to come in within the next 45 minutes. I will never see this doctor again.

Bored and distracted doctor. Doesn't return phone calls or messages. Stay away.
