I'm not sure if I had a office visit in the last six months except a check up maybe and I didn't remember any of the things that might have concerned me. so I'm going to say everyone I met at State Street Family Medicine are outstanding given the brief time time line expected of each person.

My care at the State Street facility has always been top drawer. Dr. Teichman has developed a close relationship with me, is very attentive to my needs and respects my perspective. He's a great doctor, and I'm lucky to have him in my corner. Now that the lobby is open, it's even better (I don't have a cell phone, so calling in when I arrived for an appointment was not an option. Now I don't have to beat on the door!).
December 16, 2021

November 04, 2021
I have had some unexpected medical problems in the last 6 months. I have been amazed that Dr. Teichmann was watching in real time even on a Sunday and by the time I could call for a follow-up appointment he was completely aware and up to date of my problems. It doesn't get better than that.
November 01, 2021
Dr T and his team are top notch. Very responsive and professional.
October 28, 2021
All staff

Dr. Teichman is always outstanding. He goes above and beyond to listen, and does his best for the patient. He follows through immediately, and writes a detailed message after the labs come back. He is personable and interested in who I am as an individual, and always respects my approach and decisions about my healthcare. I feel fully supported.
October 28, 2021
Staff has been wonderful. I don't remember the names of those people.

October 01, 2021
entire state street team are top notch
September 26, 2021
Besides the doctor, Taylor
September 25, 2021
All staff seem to be well-informed. (Morgan, Taylor, Reana, Tara, Whitney, Colleen) If they didn't have answers immediately, they were proactive and offered to get an answer, SOON. Very likable staff. I am one of those guys that has a few more questions than most. I am one of those guys that is willing, and has done, the work necessary to get the job done. My time is sometimes crunched as my work week can be 50 - 60 hours. I appreciate staff that doesn't just give me something to do, but tells me the benefits/purpose (if I don't already know or did not already discern the "why.")
September 22, 2021
Dr. Tieschman always responds to questions or concerns the same day. I appreciate that. It sets your mind at ease rather than creating anxiety about "not knowing".
September 22, 2021
Dr. Teichman and his assistants
September 20, 2021
Excellent doctor
September 18, 2021
Dr. Teichman and his entire nursing staff are excellent.
September 16, 2021
Yes, Dr Teichman is always going above and beyond to provide me with the best care possible. He is attentive and professional and listens carefully to my concerns and input.
September 16, 2021
I have never been so amazed by a doctor as Dr. Teichman. I went looking for a new PCP upon moving here, and had no expectations when I found Dr. Teichman. In fact, I had low expectations because of so many previous bad experiences with other doctors. I was pleasantly shocked! His demeanor, knowledge, care, attentiveness, and principles blew me away. When he explained his values and goals, I nearly cried. I have never met a PCP (or any doctor) so dedicated to exceling at his work and being so deeply connected to clients. I am blown away and have been talking about him to everyone I know for days.
September 16, 2021
Everyone's been great. I know times are difficult with the pandemic and being swamped with patients vs providers/care staff. I think everyone's been handling things well, for all the stress they've been under
September 16, 2021
The Doctor and staff,are always totally professional.
September 15, 2021
September 11, 2021
Dr. Teichman is an amazing Physician. I feel he listens to my concerns and genuinely wants better health for me and for my husband.
September 02, 2021
Everyone at State Street with whom I've had contact has been kind, courteous, and helpful. I've been going though a difficult time and Dr. Tischman has been patient and kind with me.
September 01, 2021
Doctor, Assistant and Prescription Provider have all been very tentative to my needs.. I am very grateful to be in their care.
September 01, 2021
Carla,Ben, Diane , & another staff member were extremely helpful, I do not recall their names. I'm very grateful for their patience and care in dealing with my needs. I also appreciated Dr Teichmans care and diligence in his care of my recent concern , and his follow up. Thank you !
September 01, 2021
The entire staff is first rate. Dr. Teichman is a pleasure to talk to and consult with. I feel very well supported and cared for....
August 30, 2021
My experience with Dr. Peter Taichman has always been more than satisfactory. He is an outstanding doctor, extremely intelligent, generous with his time, and always more than capable of dealing with my health needs. All members of his staff are helpful, courteous, and capable.
August 30, 2021
Taylor [ ] was immediatly responsive with a wonderful demeanor.
August 30, 2021
All care was great!And appreciated that when we called with an urgent need, and they made an appt in two days, that they called the next day when an earlier opening became available.
August 30, 2021
Great medical teamwork.

Thank you for making me better and knowing what to do !
August 18, 2021
Dr Teichman and his staff are great!
August 18, 2021
Everybody but the designers of my chart.
August 17, 2021
Dr. Teichman is the best. When I needed urgent brain surgery & was being sent to [ ], he noticed that [ ] had not ordered a pre-op physical along with the covid test. He called me and let me know these tests are usually needed & if I wanted to do them to be sure, he would rearrange his schedule to fit me in. I came in & did the tests, next day got a call from [ ] nurse that the Neurosurgeon was upset that his staff did not order tests & my surgery would need to be rescheduled. When he learned Dr Teichman had ordered and done the tests and already faxed the results, he was so happy & I got my surgery the next day. Dr Teichman also made a point to check on my recovery. I have never had a provider that not only listened to my worries but also advocates for my health so proactively. If I ask for a lab test that isn't needed, he explains why what I am asking for wouldn't help my health and what my alternatives are. He is an amazing doctor and any patients of his are in good hands
August 17, 2021
Yes! Morgan is super fantastic excellent. She wants to go to nursing school, but I think I have her convinced dentistry is better because we don't deal with the wrong end of the human. Anyway, she's very professional and actually showed empathy, so yeah, she should go into nursing. She also had really cool socks that looked like an EKG, see people may not notice the little geeky things all the time, but trust me, they notice. She definitely made the visit a comfortable experience. Wanna know something else? (By the way thank for listening to my last suggestion and adding more room to communicate my sentiments!) Okay, get this, she actually brought me back to my appointment early. Yeah, I know, well it really happened and I was so thankful!! Cause I was running between Ashland and the office and back before I had to see more patients and I had already extracted 13 rkt teeth earlier in the day, and bringing me back early was like the heavens parted and my day was awesome!!!!!
August 17, 2021
I was impressed with how much time the doctor spent with me and how accessible he is.
August 16, 2021
the doctor is always respectful and since taking over my case has been very understanding with my needs. I was worried at first but things are much easier after a face to face. I really like his personality and understanding
August 14, 2021
Dr Teichman, Morgan, Taylor, Reana have ALL been stellar. They each "get it done!" They've assisted in everyway that they can. I seldom need healthcare. The last 5-6 months, and even back to March of 2020 when a chiropractor knocked my Sacrum out of whack, have been the exception. And, SERIOUSLY, these girls bring their A game each time -- Very proactive. I am grateful for their hard work and commitment to the health and well-being of YOUR Patients! THANK YOU!!! (Beth, at the front counter, has gone out of her way to be personable with me on each appointment (2-3). (Yes, I learn names to show respect AND appreciation!)
August 13, 2021
We are very pleased with Dr Tiechman

July 31, 2021
All were fine
July 31, 2021
I very much appreciate Dr Teichman and his informed care, as well as his willingness to work with me as a new patient. Especially considering I myself am a healthcare worker and I was in need of a mental health leave, he was very accommodating in that fact and I got the rest that I needed in order to go back to my job and continue supporting our community. I have never had issue with any of the support staff and find that they are always very pleasant and easy to work with. They also are very prompt when answering questions through MyChart.
July 28, 2021
Dr. Teichman, he ia amazing! My favorite doctor of all time.
July 28, 2021
I was impressed to read, via text, that Dr. Teichman was following me when I visited the Emergency Room I appreciated that and I appreciated him telling me that
