He didn't know Jack - Had us confused w/another patient. Keep referring to his twin sisters? Jack's an only child. He seemed uninterested, got us to GI, and never answered questions & no call after GI ultrasound.

Words can not describe how wonderful Kirk Thame is. We came to Kirk Thame for a second opinion and we met with him once and we were pleased. He answered so many questions that other doctors did not. Kirk took his time and went through everything step by step.. My family is from Bean Station that is around three hours away with time change, and I will continue to drive to see Kirk Thame. Kirk Thame is the best gastroenterologist.

Provider asked no questions about previous results and results concerning our child. Spoke to me and my husband as if we were under educated and over reacting to our sons condition we've dealt with for 8 years.
