Dr Thedki seemed uninterested in listening to what I was telling him during appointments. He recommended surgery which was unsuccessful. My new doctor is telling me there were more tests and possible options I could have considered before surgery. I completely regret seeing this doctor.

Dr. Thekdi was Condescending and Dismissive. He asked me a bunch of stock questions from a sheet of paper. Every time I would try to explain my symptoms to him he would stop me so he could continue asking the questions from his paper. It was like pulling teeth to get him to listen to me and let me speak. He was very cold and uninterested in anything I had to say. He didn’t seem very concerned about my issues.

I wasted almost a year of my life not to mention the pain I endured because Dr. Thedki either would not take my symptoms seriously or was not knowledgeable enough about bacterial infections. A simple test could have saved me thousands of dollars and might have prevented this bacteria to cause all the damaging ulcers it has. Doctors nowadays just want to write scripts without getting to the root cause.

I am trying to get treated for Hep-C genotype 3. I had been treated in the past which had failed. I switched over to Dr. Thekdi. His staff is very polite. The Doctor Thekdi was also very nice. Long story short. My insurance denied my treatment. Thekdi's office fought through 3 appeals and did a ton of paperwork that ultimately resulted in my denial being overturned by a third part appeal process. I'm getting my medicine. Compared to my last GI doctor, I love Thekdi and his staff!

The doctor laughed at things I was trying to share, told me things I was doing that had been helping me the past few years couldn't have been helping me but were probably making things worse. I felt like anything I have learned about my own body over time didn't matter since he was the "expert" he talked down to me and then really dummied down what he as saying as though I must not be understanding him if I had a different viewpoint. He was condescending and I won't be going back to him.
