VERY HORRIBLE!! Dr. Thorderson gave me a surgery that I didn't need. The surgery didn't fix my problem, it only made it worse. I came back multiple times complaining of pain. He didn't offer any medicines only another surgery!! After I said I didn't want to do another surgery. They then told me I couldn't come back until I paid my previous surgery bill in full!!?? Going to Dr. Thorderson was the worse decisions I could have made!! WARNING: He only want your money!!!

I had a bone cist inside my ankle. He didn't want to do surgery if something else would work because it was major surgery. We tried the other thing but sadly it didn't help and he had to go in take it out and do a bone graph. He did a great job. He is the same every time you see him, always smiling, polite and kind and explains everything very well.
