I have seen Dr. Thacker a number of times for various issues. I consistently have been pleased with the level of service provided and highly recommend this practice.

The appointment itself is fine and they seem thorough enough, although I feel as if the PA has misdiagnosed me a couple of times. However, expect LONG waits in the waiting room before your appointment. I have tried early morning appointments and end of day appointments, and either way, I always wait at LEAST an hour in the waiting room, which I find really frustrating.

Dr. Thacker is friendly, knowledgeable and thorough. I am grateful to Dr. Thacker and her office staff for taking care of me.

Dr. Thacker and her office staff leave a lot to be desired. The wait time is extreme- almost 2 hours! Do yourself a favor and don't waste your time or money in this office. I wish someone would have warned me. Very costly lesson learned and walked away with no answers.

I am 37, for the last 6 months my face has changed drastically,And so I made an appointment for extractions and had many questions. The entire visit took 3 minutes, the medical assistant came in, asked if my chest and back were also affected, I said no, she asked if she could verify. She did not examine my face, no extractions were attempted. She talked at me and sent me antibiotics and sold me their moisturizer and face wash. I asked if I had oily or dry skin, she said she did not know?

Dr. Thacker did not proper examine my hair. She pulled on my hair a few times and made the comment I know everyone would like to have that Michelle Obama hair and told me to stop getting perms. She also stated I know your wonder what would I know about African American hair but it's a book called Curly and it has a whole section about your hair type in there. Needless to say my problem with my hair coming out from the root was not resolve and I wasted money on this office visit.
