in Redding, CA |
We had Dr. Thygeson when our daughter had it so bad she ended up in the hospital. We had many doctors through diagnosis after diagnosis and they change medications. Dr. Thygeson told us to bring in old psychological tests and explained it to us and then did some genetic testing. Our daughter is 10 years old and Dr. Thygeson was the one to diagnose her genetic condition that her other doctors couldn't figure out all these years. Lo, and behold, an excellent doctor.
