I have been a patient of Dr. Tejpar on and off for 6 years (including the same surgery the previous reviewer had) and I know that she deeply cares about her patients and that it truly matters to her to provide excellent care. I would recommend to the previous reviewer that she or he write Dr, Tejpar a letter listing each concern with the hospital and her office. She likely does not even know what has happened. I have always had excellent care with her and so have people I have referred to her. I think she will want to address the issues, whether with her own staff or the hospital.

Dr Tejpar literally spent less than a half hour with me over the span of 3 appointments, then charged hundreds of dollars to my insurance. She did my surgery and sent me to an "observation" unit where my O2 monitor went off for over 30 minutes at one point, with no response. (I was there to be monitored for sleep apnea post-cholecystectomy... you'd think they'd respond to an O2 monitor.) She never made a follow-up visit.
Her office staff is very rude and un-accomodating. They also do not know how to follow rules. I am not certain that Dr. Tejpar knows about that. They literally hung up on me today when I called asking about my reimbursement, which they have owed me for weeks.
Dr Tejpar requires upfront payment of deductible and copay (against insurance rules - ask your insurance company!) then waits a month to submit the claim. They also refuse to make any financial arrangements for you upfront, including WAITING until the actual day of the surgery for you to pay the copay or deductible. It's their way, or the highway.
It's been over a month and a half since she performed my surgery. I paid upfront a week before! I can't pay the other providers of care because Dr. Tejpar has over $500 of MY money.
I hope they are nicer to cancer patients as I would patently NOT recommend this Doctor, Staff, Hospital or care to my worst enemy. Unless you are made of money and like to waste time, AVOID.

Approximately 14 years ago, Dr. Tejpar performed surgery on my father. (gallbladder removal) At that time, she was in a practice with other surgeons. When Dad was admitted to the hospital via the ER, one of her colleagues first examined my father, and would have done surgery on Dad the next day. I was very uneasy about this doctor since I knew nothing about him, and because I had seen Dr. Tejpar myself for a sigmoidoscopy, I asked that she be with the one to do Dad's surgery instead. The other doctor failed to ask my father if he had taken aspirin (or any other blood thinning drugs) and had he operated as scheduled, Dad could have hemorrhaged. After the consulatation with Dr. Tejpar, she sent Dad home with instructions to discontinue the aspirin for a period of ten days. After the required time had elapsed in order to safely perform the surgery, she operated on my father and was able to removed the HUGE stone and his gallbladder laparascopically instead of open surgery. We were all very pleased with Dr. Tejpar and I would highly recommend her. I know nothing about her abilities as a breast cancer surgeon, but if her skill level is equal to that which we saw when she operated on Dad, I'm sure she'd be excellent.

I had a biopsy and later had gallbladder surgery with Dr. Tejpar. Caring, compassionate, no-nonsense, very thorough, cares about your comfort. Will not do surgery unless you really need it. Answers questions without being defensive. Experienced and yet a pioneer in new approaches that can benefit her patients. I am not very trusting of physicians, but I know I can trust her completely. She really is the best!
