I was assigned this doctor when I visited the Palmdale Regional Medical Center. He was horribly rude and would not provide the treatment recommended by other physicians (which was the reason I was visiting the ER). His office then incorrectly billed my insurance.

Dr. Thacker is condescending and lacks the people skills that are essential for decent medical practice. She did not listen to my concerns at all, and left me feeling very out of sorts. I immediately changed to a different primary care doctor, and am much happier now.

This woman is a Horror Show. I complained about medical issues I was experiencing while in Kaiser China Town. She said they were all in my mind. When I left the hospital, I was treated for 2 serious conditions. They were not in my mind you disgusting excuse for a Doctor

Never called me to follow up on abnormal test results- I found out about them when I asked for a copy of my record months later, after my symptoms were written off. Ended up getting a referral to another doctor when I complained about the lack of follow up.
