Spotswood, NJ |
Although Dr. Thacker is probably wonderful doctor to his patients, he is also a workers comp doctor. This is where he fails big time. Workers comp dictates to him what he needs to do and say about a patient, which is extremely unethical for any doctor. What motivates a physician to put the health of a patient at risk by doing so? The money? So sad.
