    I had a complete thyroidectomy on July 30th. Dr. Dettmer and staff did an excellent job. I was out of the hospital the same day. I feel great and just waiting for the surgical tape to fall off. My visit to Dr. Dettmer's office prior to the operation was great too. Thank You Dr. Dettmer for taking such good care of me.
