Ratings for Dr. Michael G. Teneriello
Despite staff representations to the contrary, this doctor is not a hematologist. He is an gynecological oncologist who was misleading, evasive, wrong and condescending to our family. Every time he saw my family member, his dismissive diagnosis was that she's terminal with a metastatic cancer. He had also misdiagnosed that same cancer 15 years earlier -as confirmed by MD Anderson. There was never any evidence that her slow growing cancer had metastasized or that she was terminal until he ordered excessive 'palliative' radiation that killed her bone marrow. When confronted with test results, he admitted she would die with this cancer and not from it. With his subsequent order for "no intervention, she died from internal bleeding caused by the radiation, not the cancer. He refused to talk to any family members other than in person and his staff failed to put rescheduled times on his calendar. It appears he thinks old people should just die.
Sometimes reviews are misleading. Not here. I had major surgery for ovary cancer, then chemo then more chemo to keep the cencer from coming back. This guy is an expert in this field. Make no mistake he will try to cure the cancer. Four years later, I am thankful for everything.
If I hadn't changed doctors, I would more than likely be dead right now. He got his training in the army. Lousy bedside manner. "When I get in there, I gotta do what I gotta do" is not an informative diagnosis. Does not like to be questioned.
Dr. Teneriello successfully removed my cervical cancer in 1997. He was attentive and very caring, always willing to talk to me even after hours about any concerns I had. Dr. Teneriello made me feel like I was his only patient and I will always appreciate his consistent kindness during a very difficult period.
