Dr. Tessler listens! She asks the right question and is super approachable. I think I found a winner! Oh, she is super smart!

I like Dr. Tessler and would like to remain a patient of hers. Her office staff is highly disappointing and not helpful or friendly. Their communication is lacking and I have experienced direct rudeness. This certainly needs to be addressed in order to remain a patient. Other patients were discussing this in the waiting room as well. Also, you are unable to connect to Dr. Tessler's office directly when you call. You have to go through a service and then be transferred. Not optimal.

I like Dr. Tessler. She is very kind and friendly. I waited 30+ min for the appointment (I arrived on time). Dr. Tessler was rushed and I feel that I didn't get the full attention that I deserved. She left the appointment before asking whether or not I had any questions or any issues not discussed. I surfaced a concern as she was leaving and she waived it off. She should have taken my question seriously.

I was recommended by my primary Dr to see her. I waited for over an hour to see her and when I did finally see her the appointment lasted no longer than 15 minutes. As per being my first appointment with her for my annual exam she seemed to be in a huge rush and careless with my exam. She didn't even introduce herself when she came into the room. I felt as though I was an inconvenience to her schedule. Going to visit the gynecologist every year isn't an appointment that I look forward to and no professional in the field should make patients feel rushed and like an inconvenience (at the gyno or any other Dr. office!).

From the front desk to the nurse to the doctor, everyone was fantastic. The only reason my appointment was a little delayed is because I had to fill out first appointment paperwork. I'll be definitely going back.

She doesn't listen, has no patience for your questions, prescribes some extreme medication and leaves the room without a chance for you to even ask anything about the medication, to help you be an informed patient.

Dr. Tessler is always straightforward and efficient while caring about and listening to any issues that may arise. She chats about what she's doing while somehow taking my mind off of what's actually happening. She is very quick and careful and every procedure I've had with her has been over before I even know it. I'd definitely recommend her.

Very curt and quick. While she did answer all of my questions with confidence, I felt she was way too quick and trying to get the process over with. Because of that, she was not physically gentle during her examination which made it uncomfortable.

I love Dr. Tessler but I love the front desk staff even more. Today I forgot my new insurance card and the woman at the desk (I feel awful that I didn't ask for her name!) was SO kind and patient with me. She let me pull up my insurance card via the website and email her a screenshot of it. Then she printed it out for me to have on hand for emergencies. There's not many people I've met at the front desk of a doctor's office that are nice, let alone helpful!!

Dr. Tessler was very efficient. The wait in the reception area was only longer than normal because I was filling out the medical forms since I was a new patient. Once I saw her, Dr. Tessler asked me what she needed to and answered all of my questions and I was on my way. Office is very nice and the staff is professional and polite.

She doesn't really seem to have time to really talk to you and care about what you have to say. Her answers are quick and accurate but there isn't much care in her voice. I mean, when you're there for a pap smear...it's not an enjoyable experience to begin with. She could do more to make you feel more comfortable.

I normally hate seeing gynecologists and feel pretty uncomfortable during pap smears. Dr. Tessler makes the process quick and painless, not to say she isn't thorough -- she is! Normally she sees you quickly, after filling out forms in the waiting room they'll call you in after 10-15 minutes. I had to wait a long time once, I want to say it was 30-45 minutes.
