Dr. Teng ís knowledgeable and compassionate. She is a wonderful doctor.
Dr. Teng is by far one of the BEST doctors that I have had care with. She is extremely thorough, she listens and she cares. I have been a cancer patient with Stanford for over 15 years and I have always received the most optimal care. A few years back I needed to set up care with a primary doctor. With living in Pleasanton, I decided to establish my primary care with Stanford Valleycare. Although, they have Stanford on their name now, they in no way provide the standard of care that Stanford does. After many let downs and frustrations, I decided to research a primary care physician at Stanford Palo Alto. After reading Dr. Teng's reviews, I set up an appointment and have never been so happy. Dr. Teng provides the care that Stanford is known for. I am extremely pleased that she is my primary care and there is no doubt that I am in good hands.
Dr. Teng has been my primary care doctor for many years. I really appreciate her professional care.
Always great to see Dr. Teng and catch up!

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.
