The experience I have had with the Doc was an experience that I hope no one else in this world will ever face in Feb 2018 I took my wife to him he admitted her in MOBAB for 5 days and went down her throat through the stomach and took 3 or 4 biopsies and told her she was cancer free and had nothing to worry about on that end of it so being a type 1 diabetic it was gastroparisis and seen her again in June and said same thing more to story but WE lost her Dec 1 to cancer you can figure the timeline

I have to start by saying the doctor himself is competent and did a good job of providing a straightforward service- the process and billing however are where the stars are lost- they will not be honest about your responsibility with payment and try to bill you for the facility?? ad then for the doctor seperately even after you are assured of a total it changes- we are the customers but sadly they don't seem to care...yet!

I have been seeing Dr Thyssen for over 12 years now and recommend him highly to anyone. He is not only personable but he's not rigid in his practice; he's always willing to spend time working with me to figure out what the real issue is and what treatments and/or alternates might work best.
