The best experience with the pediatrician we have ever had. He has taken every concern seriously, we are able to quickly get appointments when needed, and he seems to bend over backwards to make sure that we are taken care of every step of the way. His office staff is exceptionally professional and polite as well. We have zero complaints.

Sacramento, CA – Apr 29, 2017
We feel so fortunate to have him as the doctor for our children. When we had to go to the hospital in the middle of the night, the hospital they knew exactly who we were and thought very highly of Dr Thygeson because he always makes sure his patients get the best care in the emergency room. He is responsive and even came to see us in the hospital! He has sweet office staff and not only is their office location great, it is absolutely beautiful!
