No concern for patient issues. Not remotely concerned with appointment times - clearly operated as if they are suggestions. .Very rude, engages in "elitist" dialogue with patients. Lazy and unmotivated in addressing actual, remarkable medical issues pertaining to the foot (his specialty?). No regard for patient confidentiality. Makes medical diagnoses and treatment recommendations based on his perception of patients' socio-economic status.

I have never met such an insensitive jerk as dr. Thigpen...I was in pain dealing with neuropathy which i have never had before..he looked at my chart and said "the neurologist said your nerves are fine"I began to tell him that i was in a great deal of pain ,before i could get that out of my mouth, he looked down at my 2 inch wedge shoes and said "those probably dont help your situation...I started to cry, he turned to leave saying "try pain management." Never even offered me a kleenex.CREEP!

Dr. Thigpen has performed several surgeries on me in the past 10 years and I have never had a bad experience afterward. I think he is a very capable and personable physician. I would highly recommend him to anyone in need of an orthopedic doctor.
