Dr. Thibodeau did not care about me or my symptoms as a patient. All he talked about were statistics and averages, none which applied to me. I sought a second opinion and I'm thankful I did! I am now 4 weeks post surgery and pain free, no thanks to Dr. Thibodeau.

Dr Thibodea did surgery on my back and operated in the wrong spot. He falsely reported on my operative report. I have proof but the 3 year statute of limitations ran out so he got away with it.
