After going to ER, I was diagnosed with life threatening mysenteric Blood clot. I rarely saw him, usually nurse practitioners. He doesn't examine patients, just talks....

Dr.Theakston is an excellent professional family practitioner and always delivers very thorough examinations and advice to treat any ailment which may be causing health problems by using equipment on site. Recently while in our local hospital as a result of the flu, he convinced me that he is more than capable as a family practioner and I realized how blessed we are to have his expertise as an excellent doctor. I highly recomend him and the clinic.

My wife and I had an exceptional new patient experience at Dr. Theakston's office. The front desk staff was friendly, competent and organized. Nurse Tonya lead us through the interview process in a careful and thoughtful manner just before Dr. Theakston followed up on our progress. We had been with our prior physician for 29 years, yet we felt at home at his office immediately and his concentration to our concerns were addressed, a few changes were made tailored for us improving our health.
