in Carmichael, Ca. |
I have been going to Dr. Thelen for years and have found him to be a superior doctor, one that cares, one that listens, and one that has a wonderful sense of humor. This guy may be a doctor, but I look at him more as a trusted friend and a man of integrity. I couldn't ask for more in a doctor, friend, or man.
