Dr.T saw my daughter after an injury from a snowboarding accident wouldn’t heal. She had seen an orthopedist and had PT for many months without recovery. Dr. T recommended a procedure, PRP. His treatment and chair side manor was excellent. My daughter is finished with PT and almost completely recovered. I would highly recommend Dr.T to anyone with soft tissue sports injuries

Dr. Thekkekandam is the biggest pill pusher I've ever encountered. Blood Pressure 134/82? You need to be on a prescription! Cholesterol at 200 and Triglycerides at 185? You need another prescription! A1C is 5.9 the last two visits? You have diabeetus and need yet another prescription. Your chest burning after a morning jog in February? You have COPD. He is always looking for the slightest variance to prescribe another pill. Being personable & outgoing isn't enough to make a good doctor.
