I was a patient of Dr Thelens for almost 20 years and only reason I left is because I retired and moved to Texas. He is the best rheumatologist I have had since I moved here. He is caring, listens, I was his "problem" patient because of my Celiac and hard to find medications that worked with it, but he hung in there and was always checking for new medications. He is by far o e of the. ]best drs you will encounter in his field.

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.
