    Ray saved my life. Best orthopedic surgeon ever. Years ago, I had a catastrophic bike accident and horrible functionality in my right shoulder/arm. I consulted with 3 orthopedic surgeons. Ray inspired the most confident. We did the operation 3 days later and I started rehab on the fourth day. He called me personally the evening after my surgery to check on me and visited me in PT. My shoulder was 100% within 6 months and is absolutely 100% years later. Ray is top quality!

    Dr Thal and his PA Melissa are a pleasure to visit and I'm fortunate to have them as my Orthopedic team. I'm 100% confident that when I see Dr Thal I have the best care available and I've recommended him on several occasions. The entire staff at Town Center Orthopedics welcome you, have a great attitude, and are a pleasure to work with.

    Dr. Thal was very patient and got the diagnosis correct the first time around. I had injured my knee the previous year, and went to see another specialist who misdiagnosed it. After a year of discomfort, I went to see Dr. Thal and he looked at my knee and knew right away what the issue was.

    Dr. Thal fixed a torn meniscus about 10 years ago. I am so confident in his abilities that when I broke my leg in NYC I wouldn't let any doctor there operate. I came back and had Dr. Thal put it back together. His nurse assistant is just as fabulous as he is. There are stars in every profession and Dr. Thal is one of them.
