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.

ever since day one Dr Thwing has made me feel comfortable and is always so supportive. He listens to you and makes eye contact...never rushes in and rushes out and if he has to leave he will come back in a few minutes.
