After another doctor recommend surgery, he said that he did not recommen surgery. He was right as the problem turn out to be ALS. HE IS HONEST AND MUCH BETTER THAN MOST OF THE Orthopedic surgeons in town.

Dr. Thalgott is the best he has been treating me for over 25 years, and has always given me nothing but the best care.

No matter WHAT TIME you schedule your appointment for - you will wait THREE HOURS to see him. And that makes him a BAD doctor. Nothing else matters - if you can't get in to see him in under three hours, and you're losing time from work, and you're in agony - it doesn't matter how good he might be if you ever did get to see him. His administrative staff is the ABSOLUTE WORST I have ever dealt with.
