I have wanted to write a letter about Dr. Thirlby. He has been my surgeon and follow up doc for 4 years. He is always kind and answers all my questions. He acts very caring and understanding. I appreciate his honesty and I feel well taken care of.
Dr. Thirlby is an amazing caring man. He was so kind and professional when I had my surgeries done.
