Dr. Teng is a very caring, friendly, and understanding care provider. She takes the time to explain everything in detail on well as answer all my questions in depth. She is very good at follow ups or answering questions via MyHealth.

Dr. Teng was very interested finding what was the cause of my symptoms, and did a lot of problem solving. You could tell she was invested in giving her best care.

Very good.

SHC Patient, Nov 2018

I like Dr. Teng, just like Dr. Monioka. Dr. Teng is very professional, patience & a good listener. After hearing my concerns, she provided good judgment & recommendation. We need doctors like her and Dr. Monioka.

SHC Patient, Sep 2018

Dr. Teng is by far one of the best physicians I have gone to. Her bedside manner is excellent and right on point. She spent more time with me than any physician I have met before. I felt comfortable and safe.

SHC Patient, Aug 2018

I have a great deal of confidence in doctor Teng, and hope she remains my doctor for the foreseeable future.

SHC Patient, Nov 2017

Dr. Teng is great.

SHC Patient, Nov 2017

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.

SHC Patient, Nov 2017

Dr. Teng is really great! I am glad she is my doctor.
