Thomas Teske, M.D.

Dr. Teske is a board certified Neurologist with a practice limited to adults. He was born in Indio, CA and grew up in the Los Angeles area with his parents and two older brothers. He attended La Sierra College in Riverside, CA and received a B.A. in Religion. He studied Medicine at Loma Linda University School of Medicine and completed his Neurology residency at the University of Washington in Seattle, WA. He subsequently completed a fellowship in Clinical Neurophysiology at UC San Diego. Arriving in the Imperial Valley in 1990 with no local ties and no experience living in a small rural community, Dr. Teske initially planned only a brief stay. But as often happens, the relaxed and friendly atmosphere along with warm and accepting patients and friends made the decision to stay an easy one.

Dr. Teske is board certified by the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology and the American Board of Electrodiagnostic Medicine. He is a member of the American Academy of Neurology and the American Association of Neuromuscular and Electrodiagnostic Medicine.

Dr. Teske is on the active staff of El Centro Regional Medical Center and has served in various leadership roles over the past two decades including Chief of Staff.

Dr. Teske often spends his free time hiking and backpacking with frequent ventures into the nearby Colorado Desert. He is an avid photographer. He enjoys playing the piano and recorder. He volunteers as an Archaeology Site Steward for both the Bureau of Land Management and Anza Borrego Desert State Park helping monitor and protect Imperial Valley’s irreplaceable archaeological sites.

Dr. Teske and his professional staff are committed to providing the best possible care and experience for all patients.
