      Been seeing him over 2 years. 6/2015 saw his fnp totld her I was experiencing bad cramp left side. She said needed injection. Next day went ER because bad cramp up down left side. Found out it was P.A.D complication The day I got home from Hospital had a message from Dr Thia to go for injection. too late to call so I went to surgery center. Saw Dr T coming in and told him to his face. He still had them prep me.on xarelto was questioning injection. If U don't get injection he drops U as pt.

      Is there a less than one star? Very rude and extremely arrogant. Very disrespectful to employees and others he comes in contact with. Will give you an injection and take your money whether it helps you or not, it helps his pocket book. Had the unfortunate experience of working in connection with him for over 4 years. Was cussed at and called stupid due to the lack of follow up from his own staff. But he would take NO responsibility for it. DO NOT go to this little man w a napoleon complex.
      in Lancaster, CA |
      Very compassionate and kind staff who go above and beyond to help patients like myself.

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
