What patients are saying.
Dr. Stekler was excellent! Very professional, listened, and very good at explaining. I will pass the word to my friends! Glad we still have excellent doctors like him in the field!
Dr. Teagarden is one of the top physicians I've visited in my life. Her intelligence combined with her bedside manner assure me that I am receiving the best care possible.
Dr. Durstin is a very good doctor. Her exams are quick, efficient, and she answers my questions in terms that I can understand.
I have been seeing Dr. Stekler for 32 years, and have always been treated with courtesy and respect by him and his staff!
Dr. Durstin was fantastic! The first time ever that I was put at ease. She was very caring and was the only doctor that could ever relax me. Thank you!
I always have a good experience, whether it's good news or bad, I feel safe, comfortable, and respected. This practice has become part of my family.
