Dr. Thame has been very friendly and professional. My son is very comfortable with him, where he is normally nervous.

MD forgot to put the Rx in so it took me 6 days to get it filled. Would not give me anti-nausea meds, so my son vomited 4-6x each day before getting Rx.

The doctor kept referring to my son's twin sisters? He's an only child. Didn't seem to know who he was seeing and was very condescending.

On a scale of 1-5, we give Dr. Thame a 10! He fit us into his schedule when he was already booked because our prior GI specialist was ineffective, yet he always makes time to care for us thoroughly. We are finally seeing progress thanks to his care.

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.

We tell everyone how amazing Dr. Thame is. We drive 4 hours to see him.
Patient | December 12, 2017

Very good with my child, explained info to us well.

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.
