I absolutely LOVED my experience with Dr. Tenner. Both his medical assistant and he were amazing and very knowledgeable. However, the front desk staff members in the office are not nice at all (frequently rude to patients who asked questionsto clarify, who were hard of hearing, or did not understand English well).

Terribly unprofessional staff at the reception, they tried to charge me full price of the visit even though the insurance card and the active insurance account both clearly say that there is only a copay, refused to listen to my explanationor to my request to call my insurance company to clarify things, had me waiting for the manager for extra 40 minutes, and I had to call my insurance company myself and ask them to call the doctor's office. Zero apology was offered after it became clear that I was correct all along.

Doctor's assistant was very helpful and did a good part of the work, preparing me to see the doctor and explaining what will (probably) be done or scheduled. Doctor was very detailed, fast, professional. He even have his cell phone # to expedite any questions over the phone!

Dr. Tenner is ALWAYS a pleasure. He is thorough, professional, puts you at ease. He does what needs to be done. I introduced my sister to him who is terrified of doctors and she left saying she loves him! Something Inever heard her say! He got her to do a Colonoscopy. He is the best in his field. I highly recommend him. His office and staff are WONDERFUL!!

Dr.Tenner, has got to be the most caring Doctor I have ever been to. I have been going to him for over five years and I have to say I have never seen a more compassionate Doctor anywhere. He tried everythingto cure my Hep C and he finally went out of his way to get me in a clinical trial which cured my Hep C. I owe this Doctor my life. He sees hundreds of patients and makes me feel like I am the only one. I trust him and am very happy I was referred to him. There a lot of doctors out there who will tell you what you want to hear but not him, he says it like it is and I appreciate his honesty.?

My biggest turn off was the two hour wait!!!!! It's extremely rude to make someone wait this long! Basically I was supposed to go in on a weekday but the office called and said the doctor wasn't available and asked ifI could come in on a Sunday instead. I got there and I wait 2 hours?!?!?!?!? Because "they only do procedures on Sunday and don't do consultations". Very unprofessional and rude of them to book me on a day they knew would be bad. VERY UNHAPPY
