What People Say About Dr. Kathy Thigpen, MD
Reply
This was a first encounter with Dr. Thigpen so I have nothing to compare with. Her personality was condescending and sarcastic. I only hope she makes up for these shortcomings in her cardiology expertise; although there is no excuse for being rude. If this was not an isolated incident, maybe she would be better suited for another specialty---possibly pathology.
