Dr. Tellez is the most unprofessional physician I have ever encountered. He showed no limit to the words he used to address my sons obesity . My son is well aware of his condition and has gone through a very hard depression due to his weight . Dr. Tellez said to him "maybe you need therapy to see why you are so hungry"!!! I was in shock !! And told Dr. Tellez he's not always hungry ! I myself was 350 lbs at one point and I was not always hungry I coped with many things by eating even if I wa not hungry so please be mindful of the worlds you are using "! He very bluntly and boldly told him you probably already have high cholesterol .. I beg to differ just because you are obese doesn't mean you have to have high cholesterol levels .. I was 350 lbs and never once had it . I am in shock and disbelief this is a physician and I am wondering were this man got his license .. my son was crying and felt worthless after seeing him .I asked to speak to the office manager and she apologized and talked to my son . She said she would talk to Dr. Tellez . Frankly I would never take my kids to this Dr. Again. I will seek to have this Dr. Evaluated . What he said to my son and how he made him feel is beyond comprehension. I don't know if he dislikes obese people but the minute he walked in to the room he was rude and disrespectful.

People here are so kind, and the doctor?? THE BEST
August 01, 2022
Dr Tellez is the best. Just the office staff and medical assistants could use some more training, and not be in such a rush. They don't act like they enjoy their job. They don't make patients feel comfortable, cared about, etc. They don't connect to patients. They are in a rush and don't care about the patients. No eye contact, and they always seem irritated.

I have never met anyone like Dr. Tellez! He is has such an amazing technique in working with kids. My daughter is most definitely a crier but with Dr. Tellez she was smiling and laughing the whole time!

Dr Téllez took the proper measures to make sure my son was in good health
July 12, 2022
Doctor was nice and pleasant. He explained what he was doing in layman's term. I would rate the doctor a 10. His assistant acted like she owns the place. She's abrupt, bossy and in a rush (her trainee is a lot better and nicer. She'll make a better assistant cause she's calmer. I think calm and nice is what's needed in a pediatrician/doctor's office).

Dr. Tellez is an amazing physician. He is very informative and responsive to his patients. There is no other physician I would rather trust my children to.

Dr.Téllez is an amazing pediatrician, he is very knowledgeable and cares for his patients.
March 24, 2022
Really appreciate Dr. Tellez taking the time to explain things any concerns go in detail. I also appreciate the fact that he was just apologetic, for the wait. I know these things happen, it's time for physicals, but it just shows that he cares and that he also keep in mind his patients and their time but most importantly, I really feel like Dr. Tellez takes his time, only because he really cares and he wants us parents to understand the health of our children. My daughter feels extremely comfortable around him. He's very professionally, you can tell he's very educated with his years of experience as well. So I'm very thankful for Dr. Tellez.

March 07, 2022
Dr. Tellez has been my son's doctor for 17 yrs. He is truly the best. He listens and is very tentative to my son's issues.
February 01, 2022
For it being my first time meeting Dr. Tellez and visiting the place it was a pleasant experience. I hope that my future visits are the same.
January 21, 2022
I love that Dr. Tellez is able to interact with [PHI removed] with terminology that he understands. He provides great analogies and is very relatable. We had a great visit.
January 14, 2022
Dr. Tellez is a great doctor. We're very happy with him. We've been under his care for about 8 years now. I have the kids there. He's always very kind always speaks in a matter where we can understand exactly what he's saying, gets straight to the point. Listens to our concerns explains everything so well, we're very happy with him. And I would recommend him to any family members to everyone. He's a great doctor. And the office is also great, but we just struggle with getting appointment. Like, we used to before PH took over. It was easier with Pioneer Medical Group.To get appointment, you know, when our kids were sick, same day, appointments, all of that kind of stopped. When PH took over. So, that's one thing that I don't like that. I wish you guys would fix, that Pioneer Group has. Thank you so much.

I like the service
January 11, 2022
Hi, I like Dr. Tellez a lot. He's very patient, he listen to the problem and he keep the solution. Everything is good. The only problem(INAUDIBLE) they don't give appointment on time or don't let us talk to the doctor if needed in a emergency. I mean we understand that he's busy but still they should listen to us and I'm talking about the staff and let us talk to the doctor in a timely manner. We should not wait for a long if we are really sick. I mean if a child is really sick. But otherwise, I like Dr. Tellez a lot. He's a very good doctor. I would definitely recommend him to everyone. Thank you.

He most amazing, professional and knowledgeable pediatrician in PIH.

Dr. Tellez and his staff were friendly and very patient with my daughter. I was offered an appt with Dr. Tellez last minute and was very pleased with his service.
December 28, 2021
I like how Dr. Tellez explains to the child in kid terms and not just the parent about what's going. He's great at explain things clearly.
