Because of her lack of follow up after surgery I went into septic shock. My husband called her office 9 times two days after surgery with not a single call back after she told us she would be checking in daily. I lost 5 months of my life but was lucky to survive at all.

Doctor was very abrupt & wasn’t concerned with my opinion about my healthcare. She was so rude that I wouldn’t allow her to do my surgery & went to another hospital after discharge. She is void of bedside manners. When I asked if any of my small intestine could be saved she said “I’m not going to take the time to see what’s good & what’s infected” it’s all coming out! Thanks to the gen Med team who supported treating me medically, I was able to have a strictoplasty & resection at another hospital with minimal small bowel loss! I wouldn’t recommend her to anyone!

Made me feel like a bother to her. Saw her before surgery and never saw her again. No explanation about surgery to me nor did she even see me upon discharge. I was told after surgery I didn’t need to come back by her NP. She never believed my GI problems were worthy of an Ileostomy and because she didn’t place the osteomy originally, I was made to feel unimportant. Not a person who needed an Ileostomy despite my GI doctor and original surgeon disagreeing. Now I am very sick due to her mistake!

Dr. Thacker was very knowledgeable and probably a fine surgeon but I continue to be disturbed by my visit. I had a non-cancer issue and she made it obvious that my concerns were not worthy of her expertise and I was clearly wasting her time. As she was pushing to quickly end the consultation she made a flippant comment that was very hurtful and unprofessional. My bruised feelings will recover but I could never recommend her to anyone.

She is the worst doc I have ever met. Arrogant and don't care. She did colectomy on my father and his abdomen got infected.
