About Me

Care Philosophy

I will take whatever time you need, and I will always try to address what's bothering you. My patients have my personal cellphone number (and I am pleased that they don't usually abuse it!), and I try to manage most problems as they arise when it's still an easy cure.

Dr. Thwing is a very knowledgeable doctor, dedicated to his patients, and caring about us also. He cares about what we are going through. He takes his time with me and is willing to help any way he can. Not many doctors left that actually cares about their patients' needs.

He does not see you as a patient but as an individual with needs unique to you. I never feel rushed and no matter the question I get an educated response not just a look.
