I have every confidence in Dr. Thayer and his staff.
Patient | September 23, 2018

I am very confident in the care, diagnosis and follow-up that I received from Dr. Thayer.
Patient | September 12, 2018

we talked throughout the entire procedure mostly about non medical things (probably his effort to keep me calm).
Patient | September 10, 2018

I have another follow-up visit and I do believe that is why all questions were not answered at the time of this visit.
Patient | August 6, 2018

Dr. Thayer was so great during my visit. I have never had a doctor that made me feel so comfortable and he was so easy to talk to. He seems to genuinely care about his patients and his nurses/staff. I can't say enough good things about my experience. The coordination between Dr. Thayer and his nurses was flawless. The nurse, Jamie, explained everything that would happen and talked to me about the procedure, and then Dr. Thayer came in and said basically the same exact thing. The rest of my visit rolled out just as they said it would. Exemplary care and service!

Dr. Thayer is the best.
Patient | May 21, 2018

Very informative & made to understand severity of taking appropriate care of wound & that time would be factor in outcome of healing & appearance. Very concerned & let know exactly the outcome if care not taken with graft.
Patient | April 17, 2018

The office staff and doctor very efficient. I appreciated the doctor and his assistant nurse did not waste time, the doctor got right to the point of my situation.
Patient | February 20, 2018

Excellent bedside manner.... a 10. Very personable and caring. Made it obvious his main concern was me. Wish all my Vanderbilt doctors had his work ethics and attitude.
Patient | February 20, 2018

I could not be happier with Dr. Thager.
Patient | February 9, 2018

Patient | January 25, 2018

Dr. Thayer made it very clear to me, he did not have time to listen to me and after five minutes he was 1/2 in the exam room and half in the hall.
Patient | January 4, 2018

Dr. Thayer is one of the best doctor in VAnderbilt.
Patient | December 12, 2017

This was follow up from a double mastectomy and evaluation of tissue expanders. I hope that I wouldn't have to recommend but definitely would if I knew someone with the need
