Dr. T listens. He takes time to hear concerns. He explains everything as many times as it takes. Plus he is an excellent surgeon. It is the same for Valeria. She is kind, listens, and gives us good practical advise on dealing with post-surgery issues and concerns. They are hands down the best.

Dr. Teitelbaum is an amazing surgeon. After seeking several opinions from other surgeons, speaking to him made me feel the most at ease. He was very confident and made me feel like I was in the best hands. My surgery went above expectations and I will forever be grateful. Dr Teitelbaum is very intelligent and I will highly recommend him to anybody in need.

There are Surgeons, and then there is Dr. Teitlebaum who is a surgeon that shows his patients such care and concern that he erases your fears and assures all your concerns are important and will be addressed. I had 2 inpatient stays after surgery that had nothing to do with my bariactric surgery but Dr. Teitlebaum was there each time. I cannot say how much that meant to me, and how highly that speaks of Dr. Teitlebaum. Happy to say doing well and down 68lbs. and counting.
