Ratings for Dr. Renata Teytelbaum
I've been looking for a doctor that considers the whole person, not just a specific condition--after my initial appointment, I believe Dr. Teytelbaum is that doctor. After a very extensive discussion and examination, I left that office with hope that she will help me get well. I was advised to call before arriving for my appointment, in case the doctor was running late and was told to come in an hour later. I did, and was taken in shortly after I completed my paperwork. Overall, a wonderful first experience!
Very nice Doctor. Unfortunately, even if you make an appointment she will NEVER hold you to it. I have missed other appointments and have been late for work, waiting. One time she was at her dog groomer. My appointment was at 8:30. I didn't see her until 12:45. But, she is thorough and will take the time to go over any issues. Her staff is stressed and will apologize on her behalf.
nice and knowledgable. just a total pleasure. Dr. is on my favorite list. Waiting is worth the time. Nothing is forced upon you to buy ANY product line. She only makes suggestions and never have to feel that you have to purchase. AS for lab work..they are quite extensive and I am very please that they are ordered..
I had my first appointment with her yesterday. I was taken back at my scheduled time and had the usual taking of vitals done, as well as an EKG. I then had to wait 45 minutes to actually see her. When she did come in she asked a lot of questions and spoke to me for a long time. Then she had me get ready for a physical. That was more waiting, this time in the paper gown/blanket combination. Other than the wait I was very pleased. I know now to schedule my appointments in the afternoon and make no other plans. If you don't mind waiting I recommend her. Bring a book, the magazines are on average about a year out of date.
very long wait times in spite of appointments, this doctor does not listen to patients, does not respond to request for urgent appointments, does not return phone calls as promised, took 3 weeks to refer patient to specialist in spite of patient in serious discomfort, doctor is only interested in making the most money possible and not upmost patient care.
Her staff continuously schedules appointments for elderly patients without informing the family or patient clearly what the appointment is for or asking them if they have a ride. That same elderly patient is on 10 medicines that can not be explained why they are needed. And her after hours answering service hangs up on callers.
Don't go here if you plan on being seen within 2 hours of your scheduled appt. Going to this doctor is literally an all day event, she is NEVER on time. I've even tried getting the first appointment and still she ran an hour late getting to the office (coffee in hand like nothing was wrong). Never even apologized. However, I will say she is nice and knowledgable...just not worth the wait.
