Ratings for Dr. Christopher J. Telge
I love Dr. Telge. He's literally been my doctor since before I was born - he was my mom's doctor when she was pregnant with me, and he knows and has cared for my entire family. We trust him implicitly, as he takes the time to talk to talk with you about all aspects of your life to find the small, underlying cause of your illness. My family left the state when I was still in elementary school, and I moved back to the area as an adult, still remembering the kind doctor who treats his patient's whole health. When I went to see him for a routine check-up, he came into the room, gave me a big hug, and said, "of course I remember you! I saw your name on the folder and wondered if it was you!" Dr. Telge is old-school in all the best ways: he listens, he cares about every aspect of your health, he takes his time to fully understand all aspects of your illness (or lack thereof) and remembers it in order to give you appropriate care. But he's also on top of all the latest treatments and medical literature, so he's treating you with the very best. I could not recommend Dr. Telge enough. He's what family doctors used to be, and what family doctors should be.
Not only has Dr. Telge been a wonderful, kind and supportive family physician but he alwys seems to have cutting edge information about new methods and perscriptions. Over the last 22 years our family has grown to truely trust him and his decisions.I have had several surgeries and each surgeon that Dr. Telge referred me to has been absolutely top of the line in their field.When he enters the exam room he always has a smile and appears willing to talk no matter how busy the office is that day. At one time we were frustrated by the delays when coming to planned appointments and decided to try another doctor. We came back within a couple of visits to the other doctor. I would recommend Dr.Telge to anyone.
