My primary care provider, Dr Petrin, retired and I was interested in evaluating Dr Tesch as my new primary care provider. Since it was our first meeting there was expectation on my part that there would be a few minutes of getting to know each other. Dr Tesch seemed in a hurry. He looked at my skin issue and could not say what it was. He recommended seeing a dermatologist and a urologist for a separate symptom he was not familiar with.

The Doctor seemed to be experienced and thorough as well as friendly.

Big fan of *Dr. Tesch.
  Overall Patient Rating - April 2020
My consult lasted approximately 8 minutes. By the 4 minute point, I was already prescribed a medication for my issue. There was very little exploration of what might be causing my issue. Symptoms rather than cause seemed to be the treatment goal.

Dr Tesch took charge and made decisions that were in my my best interests so I could make decisions.

He diagnosed the problem for me but then showed little concern after he informed me of what the problem was, then proceeded to hurry and get paperwork done so he could "move on." No notes from him at all.
