Patient Comments (2)
in Merced |
I needed to try to decide which way to go and needed someone to discuss this with. He he was friendly, patient and took considerable time to see to it that my needs were met.

Dr. Thaxter is a professional, kind and knowledgeable doctor. Every appointment he took the time to thoroughly explain the problem with my shoulder and how he would go about correcting it. Going into surgery he was optimistic and eager to fix my persistent problem. During surgery, he took his time to inspect any possible flaws or corrections all around my shoulder. My shoulder has not felt this way in 5 years all thanks to Dr. Thaxter and his amazing, talented team.
