Dr. Merry L. Tetef's Ratings
Just through with first chemo. Dr. Tetef gives me hope every time I see her; very knwowledgeable, compasionate, strong and firm on what she knows. Vikki,the staff nurse is great and very caring.
By far the worst experience I have ever had with a doctor. She is unavailable EVERY FRIDAY and 50% of weekends, as well as before 9am, from 12-2 and after 5pm. When I ended up in the ER after receiving round #1 of chemo, she was unavailable and never called to see what happened or how I was doing! Never. I switched oncologists that week. 0/5- just terrible.
Absolutely the best Dr. I've been to so far in terms of care, staff and bedside manner. Caring, concerned, listens. Absolutely NOT smug. I can't comment on the type of care because I've never been treated anywhere else, but she seemed hell bent on "curing" me. I'd recommend her to anyone and everyone.
Dr. Tetef is a progressive fighter in the world of cancer. I am glad she's on my side! I survived my chemo with minimal side effects thanks to her and her highly skilled staff. If you need the best oncologist in Orange County, she's the one to see.
Odd that someone would call her smug and then rate her so highly. My experience was opposite; she was the first doctor I've ever had that asked me what I thought about my symptoms, and really listened to my responses. My experience with her and her staff was WONDERFUL, and I believe I am alive today because of her care.
Very Smug Attitude, not willing to listen to patient suggestions, too often tells patient "You're doing fine when patient is competent to evaluate lab results and points out significant downward trends
