27/11/13 4 5 5 5 Dr. Telfeian did surgery on me nov 22 ..when I first met him it was like talking to a family member...he listened to everything I said...this was my 5th back surgery...i have had constant leg pain for over 2 years.i am happy 2 say it was gone when i woke up...He is by far the best dr. Before surgery he came in and marked my back and spent over 15 min talking to my husband about what he was doing..he told him when i was in operating room i wasn't his patient i was his wife, meaning he was taking care of me the way he would want his wife to be treated..I have never had a surgeon that took the time to talk to my husbandthey all would mark my back and would be gone in less than a min. So very happy with him, I will continue to recommend him to everyone that needs a neuro surgeon. Words cannot express how thankful I am to have found him.  Respond

02/12/11 5 5 5 5 Dr. Telfeian and his staff performed in the most professional manner I as a parent have ever experienced with a medical team. Dr. T operated on my 16 year old son and removed a schwammona from between my sons 2nd and 3rd vertebra within his spine. He carefully explained everything it could have been. His treatment during the 5 week time frame when we first met the doctor to after the surgery was top notch! He is #1 in my book and I would highly recommend him to anyone that might be having any type of back issue.

19/09/11 4 4 5 5 He made me feel very calm and hopeful at a dangerous, terrifying time. His skillful surgery allowed me to heal from partial paralysis and is still keeping me mobile six years later. I've referred many patients to his office and will continue to.

05/02/09 5 5 5 5 I have been a patient of Dr. Telfeian's for over two years now and he performed a microlumbardiscectomy on me a little over two years ago. He is always professional, empathetic, personable, kind, and knowledgeable about all things medical. Even though he always takes his time with his patients somehow he is always punctual. His staff is kind and friendly and will do everything they can to get you an appointment quickly and always returns messages the day they are received. I would trust anyone to this man's expertise and will never let another surgeon perform surgery on me if he could do so. I STRONGLY urge anyone in need of neurosurgical care in the West Texas- Eastern New Mexico region to meet with Dr. Telfeian first.
