    How was your appointment with Dr. Tetef?

    Aug 05, 2022
    Doctor Tetef is a wonderful and very caring doctor. She helped me recover from breast cancer in 2005. She was very through, smart and kind. She managed my after surgery care for 5 years and scheduled MRIs and mammograms for me. She changed my medication when I had issues. Dr. Tetef participates in "Walks for the Cure" with her patients every year! I have been cancer free for 17 years now thanks to Dr. Tetef and her team!
