I love Dr. Tetro because she always listens closely and is extremely caring and kind. However - today I had anappointment at 9am and the doctor did not arrive at the office until 9:45am. That is unacceptable. I hope that this does not continue or happen again; I made an early appointment specifically to avoid missing too much work.

My appointment was in the morning on a weekday so the office was not busy. This was my first time at Dr. Tetro’s office so it took a while to verify my insurance. I did provide my insurance information through Zoc Doc but that did not make a difference with the wait time, which was disappointing. When they finally verified my coverage, I then had to pay my co-pay. That co-pay was covered by my employer via a debit card (the Difference Card - issued by United Health). Since the office does not accept credit or debit cards, I had to pay the co-pay out of my own pocket then request a reimbursement. Since I didn’t bring cash, I had to go out and get cash from the nearest ATM to pay for the visit. By the time I got back an hour had past since I initially showed up for the appointment. When I paid and asked for a receipt detailing the reason for the appointment I was given a hand written note which was not enough for my employer to reimburse me for the co-pay that I was supposed to charge to the Difference Card. I ended up never getting reimbursed for that co-pay due to insufficient documentation. I will not be going back because I paid for insurance that would cover my visit and still had to pay for the visit due to the way payments are handled by Dr. Tetro’s office.

She was nice and knowledgeable, however after a 1+ hour wait (I arrived ten minutes ahead of time, did not count that ten minutes as part of the wait time), I felt like I was hustled as quickly as possible in and out. Also I had to pay cash for the visit, and was told If that if Im the end the charge is more than the amount I pay, once I receive the bill I have to call up the billing office to have it adjusted based on the cash I already paid. Way , way too inconvenient. What a hassle.

My Appointment was at 10 am as per ZocDoc for Annual Physical. Reached the office exactly at 10 am. Lucky to get the last chair in the 5 chair waiting room. In 5 mins I was told to fill out the Patient form, informed them i already filled it in Zocdoc, they said i needed to fill it still. At 10.30 the medical assistant took my blood, checked my blood pressure and asked the all the same questions about medical history i filled in ZocDoc, also gave my urine sample. Then Dr Tetro, called me in at 11.30 am. She realized that i had been waiting for a long long time and then called up the receptionist and told her not to make this kind of delay again - ( my guess, she entertained senior citizens who were walk-ins). Dr Tetro apologized to me at least three times for the extreme delay. She then checked my vitals, lymphnodes and breathing. She was very professional. Would really recommend this doctor to others.

She is a very nice doctor and her staff is great.I felt she was a bit rushed but I think I am to blame since I arrived a bit late. Also, they don't take credit cards which is a bit annoying.
