Dr. Teitel is great. It's obvious he sees a lot of patients, and this contributes to his expertise. He gave me great recommendations, a referral. He did not recommend surgery immediately. He asked me questions about my lifestyle, how and if I was compromised, and how the pain was affecting my sleep before giving me the name of a surgeon, which I asked for because I decided for myself that surgery was the best option for me. He's a very good, very thoughtful, very experienced and honest doctor. I highly recommend him. Nice staff, too.

Dr Teitel was highly recommended by my primary care physician. And I was not disappointed. The office staff were most courteous and helpful. The wait time was almost non-existent. I barely had time to fill out my paperwork. Once the doctor greeted me and led me into the examining room, he was very kind and asked all the right questions. I felt at-ease and I instantaneously felt that he was the "right" doctor for me. It was a thorough exam. He seemed knowledgeable and professional. All good.

He is a nice doctor, but I felt rushed. He also kept going in and out the door telling me to hold on and that he will explain to me what he was talking about in a bit, but he never did. I kept asking questions about my condition and his answer most of the time was "It`s your decision". At the end of the day of course is my decision, but the reason I am there is to find out what he thinks as a specialist about my concerns. His secretary is nice and helpful.

He's nice but perhaps he was running behind that I felt rushed. It's unfair.. Some of us patients really go out of the way for a visit, I was coming from Jersey - left work 2 hours earlier to get his 4:45PM appointment. I was 10 mins late, emailed and called 30 mins prior that I would be running 10 minutes - no one picked up but they responded via email it'll be okay. Was seen at 5:45PM. He was asking me general questions quickly and not really giving me time to answer it. "Do you have a sister" - I have many siblings. If you want to get straight to the point just ask me if anyone in my family is sick unless it's a female issue then ask me directly and not cut me off when I'm replying (if you really don't have time to run around the bush). His assistant sat behind, slouching on the chair. When I walked out, he was texting. Seemed like he's still in college, probably not your field of interest. The computer the doctor was using kept having pop up sales advertisements, not so professional. He didn't explain much, "we'll see" "just have it, hold it, take it for now" that was the most part. He gave me a slip for blood work and an X-ray slip for "just in case.. If I want to..". I feel like I'm getting the run around, I am paying to get diagnosis - it shouldn't be up to me if I want to get X-ray. Unless he said, let's wait for the blood work, I'll let you know if you should get an x-Ray and in the mean time if you prefer, you can do it anyway. Why would I want to waste more money doing things I don't need to do. I obviously just want to get straight to the point, what do you think it is, what are you ruling out, what are we testing for?.. All "I don't know, we'll see".

Went to him for a second opinion and all he did was reiterate what my last doctor told me. He then hooked me up to a TENS machine in another room so he could see another patient. Then came back and tried to get me out of the office as fast as possible. Do not recommend.

Disappointing that they do not have the ability to run a blood panel test from within the office. You will need to find a separate lab to conduct any required tests. The doctor is superbly knowledgeable, friendly and all around fantastic.
