Dr. Teng is great.
Physician and medical student were very good but I left not feeling 100% that my injury was diagnosed properly and that I was doing all that I could to heal quickly. This could be very wrong on my part but it is how I felt. I also wondered if I should have been offered a wrap for my chest/rib area and perhaps physical therapy. The course of my recovery felt very vague to me.
Dr. Teng is really great! I am glad she is my doctor.
