Today was my first appointment with Dr Thayer and I will highly recommend him to anyone looking for a physician. Everyone I met from the front desk, to my nurse, to the lab, were welcoming, friendly, and knowledgeable. Dr Thayer spent the time to listen to my concerns, answer all my questions, gave me options and ideas, and we made a wellness health plan that works for me! Thank you Dr Thayer and staff! Oh, and I didn't have to wait at all!!!!! ??

Dr. Thayer is a very kind Doctor. He has a wonderful bedside manner and has always been very welcoming. He is careful to explain the why behind his instructions. The first time I met him, I was seeking medication for depression. He was very caring and made me feel very at ease. Thank you, Dr. Thayer!!!
