What People Say About Dr. David Thiel, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful
My family's and my experience with Dr Thiel was poor. He was extremely rude and misdiagnosed my condition. Not sure if he was having a bad day but I have to rate based on my own encounter, whether or not it is his norm. Maybe a second visit would have changed my mind but the first consult could not get much worse...

My experience with this surgeon could not have been better. I originally consulted with Moffett in Tampa. Bottom line at Moffett...remove two ribs to take out my right kidney. Thiel took it out threw my navel. There is much about this surgeon, not readily available online. He is recognized by his peers and profession as being among the top-surgeons in his specialty. His kindness is "icing on the cake."

I had robotic prostatectomy. Straight forward and honest. Makes sure you understand what lies ahead and the risks involved. In my case, Dr. Thiel did an excellent job and many of the side effects from this surgery have been non-existent.
