My Approach to Care

I am very thrilled to have the opportunity to be invited to work with some of the best people in the country. The best part of my job is getting to take care of people. Being from Columbus, Nebraska, I really enjoy going out to the small towns. If we can get to these patients early enough we can help them live a long healthy life. You do what it takes to get the job done for the patient. The patient’s needs come first and everything else is secondary.

Difficult getting a visit scheduled. Need to have a more forward looking scheduling program, one month is not enough time.

Awesome care.

My only complaint is that my medicine list was not completely up to date and accurate even though I had given a list of current medications.
October 13, 2021
As usual, I was very satisfied with all aspects of my visit.

I really appreciated his attention to detail and his patience.

Dr. Tessendorf is a very caring person. He listens to your concerns and reacts to them explaining reasons for his actions. You definitely don't feel like you're just another patient that he has to listen to.

Happy BHI anniversary Dr Tessendorf. 15 grateful I am to have you on my team! He is always very respectful and I NEVER feel that he is rushed. He is almost always on time and if he is a few minute late he apologizes, understanding my time is valuable too. It is always a positive experience from the front desk to receiving the AVS prior to leaving. You ALL are a class act!!!!

We always look forward to our visits to Dr Tessendorf. He is a very engaging person who really makes it easy to talk to. We know he cares about us, and we, in turn, care about him as well. We know our hearts are in very good hands.

I was very impressed with this office. From the lady at the front desk very pleasant. The help were all very friendly and the nurse I had I think name Gloria (could be wrong) ....even my daughter with me commented she is what a nurse should be professional yet friendly but made you feel at ease. Dr. Todd T (cant spell last name) was EXCELLENT very caring wasnt in a hurry took time with us which is unusual nowdays at doctor appts. I WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND BRYAN HEALTH in Hastings.

Due to the fewer numbers of physician for the cardio department. My, any available appointments are too far out. Thank you.
May 18, 2021
I could not have been anymore satisfied with my visit with my doctor!
May 13, 2021
I liked the doctor's conservative style of treatment; he could have offered pills as the treatment, but, instead chose other routes. Which, I appreciate that.
May 05, 2021
No only did they get me in on short notice, but they treated me with kindness and respect.
May 04, 2021

Dr. Tessendorf is acquainted with everything in my file, he is patient. He is always willing to listen and I just think he's a great doctor and I would I'm glad that I have him as a doctor because I trust whatever he tells me, I trust it very much.
April 27, 2021
Dr. Tessendorf was very caring and seemed to show interest and give lots of time to my questions, so that was all good and my concern with the office has been that sometimes I don't get called back very quickly and so because I had a recent heart attack that's been kind of frustrating, but I think Dr. Tessendorf does a nice job. He was not able to access my information from cardiac rehab and that would have been valuable information for him to have about my blood pressure which has been a little problematic so that could be worked out
April 07, 2021
I love Dr. Tessendorf. He is respectful, knowledgeable, and never makes me feel rushed. I have, and will continue, to recommend him to anyone needing a cardiologist.
April 07, 2021
Dr Tessendorf seems to be a very down to earth heart doctor, he listened to my concerns and made suggestions on how I could improve my life. Most of all he didn't seem rushed! I would recommend him to anybody.
