Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Thors "As a vascular surgeon I deal with many complex problems resulting from many common medical diseases including hypertension, diabetes, high cholesterol, and smoking. A minimally invasive approach is usually possible for most problems including peripheral arterial blockage, abdominal aortic aneurysms, and venous disease. I practice in a comprehensive care center which can usually perform all your testing and consultations on the same day to minimize travel burdens."

Dr. Thors is not only kind and reassuring, he is a knowledgable professional. I like his realistic mannerism. I was comfortable with him the first day I met him. I had Carotid Endarterectomy surgery on the right and will return for the left side. I would highly recommend Dr. Thors.
