What People Say About Dr. Carolyn Thumser, MD
Reply
Dr. Thumser was thorough, friendly, efficient and competent. She explained things to me very clearly and took time to answer all my questions. Dr. Thumser put my children at ease. She has a great mix of being appropriately cautious while not being an alarmist. I felt reassured and empowered by her assessment of my children coupled with her helpful tips and instructions. I have had a wonderful experience each time I've visited her. So grateful to find such an excellent pediatrician locally!
