Ratings for Dr. Nafisa A. Tejpar
I had surgery with Dr. Tejpar before and this time took my 89 year old adopted Mom for evaluation and surgery. The surgery and recovery were easy. Dr. Tejpar used a new medication in the incision to aid in pain. She followed up a week and then a month after surgery and all was well. It returned the quality of life my Mom had enjoyed before her problem. We both have had wonderful experiences with Dr. Tejpar.
My experience with this doctor was a nightmare. She was not available for several days after my surgery and her staff just told me to wait. Complications set in, which she eventually took care of, but they could have been avoided had she made herself, or someone else, available.
When I scheduled my first appointment with Dr. Tejpar, the lady on the phone insisted that I arrive at least 15 minutes early, even if I brought my paperwork filled out already. Then I got a confirmation call the day before reminding me that I needed to get their at least 15 minutes early. So I made sure to arrive for my appt 15 minutes early with all completed paperwork in hand. Nobody was in the waiting room - just me - so I thought I'd get in right away. The ladies working in the office were extremely friendly and helpful, and they told me I'd be seen shortly. However, 45 minutes later I was still in the waiting room and I ended up leaving before being seen by the doctor because I just couldn't wait any longer . I suggest if you make an appointment with Dr. Tejpar, you should call ahead that same day to see if she is running on time and then you can adjust your schedule accordingly to prevent excessive waiting.
I'm due to go see Dr. Tejpar and always look forward to visit. Staff are very nice, helpful and compassionate. I've had two cyst aspirations and she is so good about telling you exactly what she's doing, if there will be pain, etc. I don't usually pick a doc out of provider book but I'm sure glad I did with her. I would trust her to do whatever needed to be done. Like others, wish she could take care of my other health issues.
The best! She really cares, talks straight, is compassionate and won't do surgery unless you need it or it is your best option. Trustworthy. I really like that she is actually gentle in exams and procedures. Brilliant, very skilled, experienced and yet stays current with newer techniques and thinking. I just wish I could clone her for all areas of healthcare. We need more like her. Thank you, Dr. Tejpar! (She was on time most of the time, but when she wasn't, you know it's because she takes the time she needs with a patient. She respects your time, but is thorough and will help her patient through difficult news. I never minded waiting because I knew she would do the same for me if I ever needed it.)
Dr. Tejpar is professional, thoughtful, helpful, knowledgable, and caring. I have been a patient of hers for over five years. I had a lump removed from my left breast in without a problem. Followup care was exceptional. Her staff follows through and are always professional. I always recommend her to my friends and relatives. Great going, Doc.
Excellent. Up on latest info and techniques, including minimally invasive surgical procedures. Does everything possible to minimize discomfort and promote speedy recovery. Not touchy-feely, but caring. I would definitely go to her again, if I ever need surgery.
