My procedure with Dr Te went extremely well, with a huge reduction in size and increase in flow. Sleep is rarely disturbed by a need to urinate.

I have been a patient of Dr Te since 2007, after my radical prostectomy, I unfortunately was incontinent. Dr, Te resolved my problem by installing an artificial sphyncter. Unfortunatly I lifted something and ended up with a hernia, which interfered with the artificial sphyncter. He repaired my hernia and repaired the artificial sphyncter. Dr. Te has always been nothing but professional, courteous and business like in his dealings with me and my family. His staff does a great job and are very efficient in contacting & taking care of your needs.

A very accomplished laser surgeon who treated my BPH with care and advanced knowledge. He is bright and caring even though sometimes rushed. That is only during followup visits, but in every case he will explain, thoroughly, every aspect of my prostate health. Comforting knowing I am in the best of hands.

Dr Te is an excellent surgeon. He helped my father with his prostrate issue. Dr Te is horrible with the follow up appointments. He is curt, rude and rushed. Dr Te made suggestions to change meds without listening to my fathers questions. Dr Te should stay in the operating room, where his contact with patients, family and caregivers are minimum. I would recommend him as a surgeon.

Dr. Te is rude, quick to judgment, and uncaring. He has a bias against bicylists, and is quick to blame pelvic pain on bicycling (when asked if I might bicycle again he became derisive, and said --if I was lucky enough that they could patch me up-- I should never bicycle again). Te discourages communication (when told that testicular pain --comes and goes-- he said --I dont do pain that comes and goes--). He was lousy in offering suggestions or referrals in connection with chronic pain. In the end, I figured out my problem -- an inguinal HERNIA -- which an experienced hernia surgeon located in approximatley 15 seconds. Hernias can cause referred pain which mimics prostatititis and other pelvic pains, and the pain typically comes and goes (mild or absent in the morning, worse during the day, and other variations in part depending on whether the bowels are full). That connection between pain and hernia has been known for 1000s of years, but not in nasty Dr. Tes office.

As a retired medical professional, I was expecting better from Dr. Te. His TURP operation was of no benefit to me, as was his PTNS and biofeedback therapy. He seems hungry to recommend more and more operative procedures, and when they fail, he resorts to telling me my frequency, urgency, etc. is in my mind, my imagination. I found him to be offensive and unprofessional, a huge disappointment and a disgrace. Beware.
