Dr. Leah Tessler

Very Unprofessional

Dr. Leah Tessler was impatient and extremely hostile during my appt – in short, very unprofessional.

The appt was for a physical, and she started the session by prompting me for concerns.

I started listing some minor things (allergies, soreness), when she started rapid-fire drilling me for symptom details, in a very unkind manner.

It felt more like an interrogation than a doctor’s appt, where seeking information for a diagnosis is perfectly acceptable.

I had never experienced this before, but soon got the hint that I wasn’t welcome.

It’s actually funny to reflect on, with her eye rolls, sighs, and are-you-stupid stares.

Perhaps an off morning? To give her credit though, this was very different from my first experience with her about a year ago.

To add insult to injury, she ended the session with ‘oh by the way, I’m going to submit this as a regular dr’s visit instead of the physical [this appt was supposed to be].’

Knowing full well the difference in out of pocket costs (insurance will fully cover for preventative services like physical check ups), she insisted she do this and I book another appt with a nurse at the facility.

Total damage ended up being around $150, where I budgeted $0 and 2 hours.

Needless to say, I left feeling mistreated and will not be rescheduling a new physical appt at Bayspring Medical.

It’s a shame because a friend had recommended the nurses in the first place, and I should’ve opted to see them instead of Dr. Tessler.

6 Reviews on Dr. Leah Tessler

  1. I got REALLY sick in and spent a couple of weeks in the hospital.

    Those reviews look pretty old. I can honestly say that Leah helped save my life. I got REALLY sick in and spent a couple of weeks in the hospital. Leah directed my care, and turned me on to an excellent neurologist and GI guy.

    I’ve never used yelp and I know there are plenty of issues with the validity/accuracy/etc of the service. But I CAN tell you that Tessler is an excellent doc, and I’d recommend her to any of my friends.

  2. Please avoid Dr. Tessler at all costs.

    Please avoid Dr. Tessler at all costs. I was amazed at how rude, insensitive and condescending she was. Perhaps the reason her front staff is so rude is because she has set the example/precedent that treating patients in such a way is acceptable.

    From the moment she walked into the examination room, she was unfriendly and unprofessionally curt. She did not look me in the eye when she spoke to me (looked at her notes or her computer the whole time) and cut me off several times when I spoke, seemingly irritated by my questions and/or the information I was trying to give her on why I was there.

    I was shocked, as no doctor I have ever seen has treated me this way. Please save yourself the trouble and avoid this doctor. There are many other great doctors out there, no need to put up with her treatment.
    I have never written a negative review on one of these sites before,

    but I wanted to do my part in helping other s avoid leaving a doctor’s office feeling as disrespected as I did that day. It is my hope that this review might help Dr. Tessler realize that she needs to check her attitude and consider how she and her office staff interact with patients.

  3. Leah Tessler in one of the worst stressed out women MD I have ever met.

    Leah Tessler in one of the worst stressed out women MD I have ever
    met. I was given to her after Dr. Jean Rhow moved to Oakland ( and she was awesome) and we definitely were not a match. Her condescending manner and abrupt approach is so inappropriate and somewhat abusive.

    We ended up firing each other. Bay Spring front staff isn’t exactly stellar, with the rising cost of heath care I’m choosing someone who has better people skills. I really don’t want to give her 1 star.

  4. I wouldn't waste my time or money.

    That was the last time I ever set foot in that office. I felt like she and her staff were extremely unprofessional and plain rude. I work in the mental health field and I’ve had clients late & have never behaved in such an unprofessional manner.

    Prior to this final straw, I have always been less than impressed with her staff. They are usually rude or dismissive. Dr. Tessler has in the past been condescending towards my thoughts on what was going on with me or what I wanted to know about. Really Dr. Tessler? Lets all roll our eyes and make sarcastic remarks when our patients ask a medical question.

    I would never recommend her to anyone. Unless she’s calmed down a bit and rehired her staff, I wouldn’t waste my time or money.

  5. Never Again

    I have switched Drs, but the reason switched was because upon arriving to my appt, ON TIME & waiting for the front desk staff to help another woman in front of me (and yes, there were more than one staff, but none paid me any attention) I was finally checked in maybe literally 3-4 minutes into my appt.

    The front desk even said “You need to be on time”, when I said I’ve been here for almost 10 minutes but you were helping someone else, she just pointed to the clock. Then I was asked to walk into the exam room, where I was met with Dr. Tessler standing in the hallway with her arms crossed and shaking her head. I am not exaggerating.

    She was very rude to me and our “15 min” appt time wasn’t even used up, even after the 4 minute delay… I was frank with her and explained that I had been ignored in the office and got there 10 minutes early, and she didn’t even acknowledge me.

  6. i would never go there again!

    Dr. Tessler may be fine…but you can never get in to see her. Her staff is beyond rude and incompetent. When I broke my elbow biking a few years ago, they said i had to speak with her before they would give me an appointment; i couldn’t speak with her because she was away; i couldn’t see one of her associates because “i hadn’t spoken to her”;

    i couldn’t just get a referral to an orthopedist because “i hadn’t seen her”…you get the picture. the Abbott and Costello-esque sketch is only funny to me now 2 years later. it wasn’t funny when i was in pain and had nowhere to turn. this is only one of several stories of ill treatment towards patients at this office. i would never go there again!
