Dr. Teff explained the surgical procedure the day of surgery. I felt very comfortable with his explanation and did not have any hesitation about the surgery. Dr. Teff is kind and he cares about his patients. While staying in the hospital, Dr. Teff came in twice a day and changed the dressing himself. He is attentive and answers all the questions asked. After the surgery, I felt immediate relief from the pain I had for two years. I found Dr. Teff to be an amazing neurosurgeon!

We have moved 45 minutes away from this practice awhile ago and still choose to come because of how friendly and attentive the staff and Dr. Patel are. My children love Dr. Patel and have never been as comfortable with a doctor as they are with him. Thanks!

Dr Teff has been an excellent provider. I put my trust in him hard on Dr. Lieberman's recommendation. I have no regrets. My back feels sixty Percent better right after surgery

I'm been coming to this family medical practice for quite some time now. Every time I leave knowing that me and my family are well taken care of. Thanks!
Tips & Advices
A child should see his or her pediatrician frequently during the first few years. Once the child reaches age 3, parents should schedule a doctor's visit at least once per year. Before that, however, the American Academy of Pediatrics suggests parents arrange visits according to the following schedule:
  • 2 to 5 days old
  • 1 month old
  • 4 months old
  • 6 months old
  • 9 months old
  • 12 months old
  • 15 months old
  • 24 months old (2 years)
  • 30 months old (2.5 years)
No, parents should call 911, an emergency physician, or a pediatric emergency physician if a child suffers an acute illness or injuries. Doctors in these fields are more qualified than pediatricians to handle emergency situations.
A well-visit is a routine visit with a pediatrician to track a child's development, discuss medical or emotional concerns, and receive immunizations and medical advice.
Yes, pediatricians provide immunizations for infants and children up through 21 years.
No, pediatricians do not have to be board certified.They're only required to have a state license. However, certification indicates a dedication to studying pediatrics beyond the requirements.
