Dr. Karen Tessler is a gynecologist located in Toronto.
Dr. Tessler is a horrible and incompetent doctor. I was 26 when I saw her, I bled out all over her examination table, shaking and clearly not well. She saw the troublesome "lump" that was bleeding non stop on my cervix and told me there is nothing wrong with me, to go home and let my body heal by not using tampons anymore or wearing tight clothing. She didn't due her due diligence by giving a LUMP on my cervix a biopsy or even a culture test she sent me on my way and told me there was no reason to book a follow up appointment.
In truth, it was stage 3 cervical cancer and now I am 28, live with constant pain from scar tissue in my womb, sleep 3 hours a night and have to go to work sleep deprived and in constant pain, all because she is a disgrace of a doctor. She is not a good doctor, maybe she's okay if you have something basic that needs a little help, but if you have something serious she is not willing nor intelligent enough to do her job as she vowed to do when she took her oath. #baddoctorskillpeople
Thanks Dr. Tessler, now I will never have children of my own and you let my illness grow for 13 months before a walk in doctor stepped in and did what you couldn't.
The dr is good and to the point. She used to have this great receptionist. The one she has now is abrupt- I feel like I have to tiptoe around her or she might bite my head off. She also does not answer her voicemail messages.
she is kind of intimidating, and speak really fast.
but she does sound really knowledgeable and provides you with option. she also encourages you to call for another appointment at anytime if you feel you need to see her again, which is nice bc most specialist i've ever seen never offered this simple one liner!
unlike ali, she didn't even remember why i was back to see her, and it was only 2 weeks ago =(
but i do recommend her bc she really strict to the point and tells you as it is. and you're in and out! no need to take a day off work!
I am very impressed with Dr. Tessler. I have had two appointments with her so far, the first being a meet and greet and the second, a physical exam.
She is very friendly and tries to remember personal details about her patients. The wait time is very short and she is efficient and fast without you feeling processed or like a number. Best of all the physical exam is quite expeditious, which diminishes the feelings of being violated. It was definitely the least uncomfortable exam I've ever had.
Most of her patients are pregnant and seem quite happy there from what I've seen so far. I think she is an excellent Doctor and would recommend her to anyone. The only thing is, I don't know if she is taking new patients at this time.
