Great doctor but the practice itself is terrible. I can no longer deal with the front office here. The lack of servic is awful. It's a shame, cause she really is a great doctor. The office issues I have all relate to the poor office staff, which I'm guessing is a Good Shepherd issue. To be specific, the phones are never answered, and I had a surgery scheduled and trying to get the paperwork out of their office was an absolute headache.
My experience with Dr Thayu has been great. I was "assigned" to her when my previous Dr (and good friend) retired. I couldn't be more pleased with her and the care she provides for me and my family. She is more than willing to listen to my concerns and answer any questions I may have. I never feel rushed during my appointments with her and she has been very responsive when we phone her with a question or request a prescription refill/renewal. She provides great medical care.

I had heard nice things about her so when I needed to change doctors, I decided to go with her. What a mistake! For the year I have been with her, she has not treated me for a single issue but has referred me to 6 different "specialists". I had a sinus infection. I don't like to take antibiotics but I was suffering and asked for some. She refused and referred me to an ENT. There was a 6 week wait she couldn't help me to get in sooner. I will not go back to her and have changed to a new physician

Dr. Thayu is a good listener and has helped me work thru various health issues without being radical. I enjoy seeing her because I know that my questions will not go unanswered.

Since our family Dr. retired we have seen three different doctors before discovering Dr. Thayu. Listens, reacts, considers, and gives answers. Dr. Thayu and her nurse Jenn are very personable. Blood drawn across the hall with another group of amazing gals. Very satisfied with whole scenario at this office.

Because of Dr Thayu, my husband is alive today. In a regular office visit, while listening to my husband's chest, she found an abnormality. She sent him to a heart specialist. He ended up having a triple bypass and a replacement valve and 2 valves cleaned. Dr Thayu is a wonderful doctor. We were her patients in Fox River Grove and followed her to Lake Zurich. She is easy to talk to and pays attention to everything you say. I cannot say enough good things about her.
Dr. Thayu is very thorough and listens to me. She addresses all my issues and is a very pleasant person.
