Wesley seems to be a competent physician. He spent very little time with me and, at each visit, appeared very hurried and stretched for time. One example of an area for improvement - I had to petition the nurse for information concerning scar minimization. Wesley never addressed this topic and left the room before we could have a discussion on the topic.

As above left alone for close to an hour without being told by anyone what was going on - provider was with me less than 15 min. to explain a surgical procedure.
Patient | April 24, 2017

I had an appointment Thursday! Now I'm waiting for x-ray results. Dr. Thayer is professional and above and beyond!!! Also before my first hand surgery about 10 people at Vanderbilt said he was one of The Best on all levels. I have to agree. Some of my family met him and they thought he was professional and above & beyond the call of duty~as well!!! Thanks Immensely!!! You are lucky to have him and his team!!!
