I went to dr. Thor's with toes that were dying because of blocked arteries in leg...they were a dark purple...he did a bypass on my leg and left my dead toes... he said I'm hoping they heal themselves with the new blood flow back in foot...well his heal themselves didn't work...they bandaged foot up and sent me home a week after surgery...my wife took off bandages to change and my toes are as black as coal and draining from the skin splitting and a bad oder..rotting off

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.
