What People Say About Dr. Eric Thiel, MD

From the first appointment to after surgery on my 17 year old daughter's knee, Dr. Thiel was incredible. He treated us as if we were family, and if this was his daughter he was treating. He explained everything in a way that we could understand. Caring, compassionate, knowledgeable, and patient. All of this and more describes Dr. Thiel. It's more than worth the 90 minute drive to get care like this. I highly recommend Dr. Thiel and would consider him first for any future needs.

DR THIEL HAS ALREADY DONE A HAMSTRING REPAIR AND ROTATOR CUFF REPAIR ON ME AFTER A WORK RELATED INJURY. HE IS ABOUT TO DO A 3RD, A CARPEL TUNNEL RELEASE. I FIND HIM TO BE VERY EMPATHETIC AND CARING, HIGHLY INTELLIGENT AND MOTIVATED, AND MOST OF ALL A GREAT SURGEON. HE HAS PUT ME BACK TOGETHER SO FAR. BEING A NURSE MYSELF I HAVE RECENTLY ASKED OTHER NURSES WHO HAVE WORKED WITH DR, THIEL HOW THEY GET ALONG WITH HIM. IT IS SAID THAT HE TREATS STAFF AS WELL AS HIS PATIENTS. KUDOS TO DR. THIEL.
