Dr. Tellez was unlike any provider I have seen before! She ensured I understood and asked about the treatment ideas of my referring physician. I cannot recommend her more! She was so patient and thorough and really made me feel like we were a team! I appreciate how much she calmed my nerves and involved me and let me have an opinion in my care! She was completely worth the wait for the appointment and the delay in visit! awesome provider!
