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!

Great Dr. takes time to explain your condition. Dr. Thigpen makes you comfortable, the folks who work there from A-Z are the best. I have already recommended Dr. Thigpen and 2 of my friends are now seeing Dr. Thigpen.

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.
