Dr. Thayer is the best!
Patient | July 26, 2016

Dr. Thayer barely even remembered me as a patient, did not allow me to ask any questions as it was clear he was wanting to get in and out as quickly as possible. Was a follow-up appointment to an emergency procedure, spent maybe 30 seconds looking at my incision. Did not have an opportunity to ask questions about future procedure.
Patient | June 27, 2016

Dr. Thayer is an excellent physician. He is kind and compassionate.
Patient | May 28, 2016

Once the service started all was exemplary.
Patient | May 1, 2016

Out of all the Dr's I seen while I was in trauma he was the best and kindest Dr. I had.
Patient | April 25, 2016

He started the procedure without telling me what he was going to do. I just felt pain, I didn't know what he was doing.
Patient | April 1, 2016

He is always professional, considerate, and able to show concern about everything I have had to see him about. He remembers my medical history with him and is able to discuss them again if needed, i.e., allergic reactions, etc. He is probably my favor doctor of all time and one whom I trust and respect completely. I have already recommended him to others that may be in need of this type of doctor. I have never had a bad experience with him or his staff. They are very good about not making me wait long and have always be courteous and helpful.
Patient | April 1, 2016

Would ABSOLUTELY recommend Dr Thayer to others
Patient | January 25, 2016

Provider said someone would call to schedule my surgery, but no one has called and it has been nearly 2 weeks.
