Assistant Lety is exceptional!
I saw him after making a last minute appointment to approve some minor surgery. I will see him again next week for my semi-annual checkup
Dr. Tewes does a great job and seems to really care about me. He either has a fantastic memory or takes great notes. He also spends the time to discuss all options and is very complete in his explanation of procedures or medications prescribed.
Dr. Tewes is awesome!
Dr. Tewes was patient, professional, and made me feel at ease. I appreciated him taking the time to go through multiple years of labs with me and not rushing through my many questions. I also appreciated him explaining his recommended course of treatment.
Dr Tewes is thorough and caring. He checks for any prescription drug interactions before he prescribes a new drug, which is awesome.
Upon returning from my appointment, and relating my experience, my other family members began to consider switching their primary care needs over to Dr. Tewes.
I had a few new health concerns and they were addressed in detail.
He set up blood tests and bone scan. When I learned next day that I should have asked about Medicare rather than my secondary insurance, I reaced a. very nice lady on my second call who set up everything I needed to have Medicare billed first then insurance. She called me next day to let me know and patiently answered my questions making sure I understood. I am grateful to her.
Dr. Tewes is always thorough and professional. I am confident that my best interests are served.
Have been Dr. Tewes' patient since [omitted], now my significant other also has Dr. Tewes as primary physician as he has seen how Dr. Tewes took care of me. Would never consider changing doctors, we get the best treatment possible with Dr. Tewes.
This was my first face to face visit with Dr. Tewes and he was extremely professional, caring, and a great listener. He had great people skills, great medical expertise, and displayed a very caring attitude. I am lucky to have him as my new doctor.
