He had a terrible bed-side manner. I had a simple procedure and I waited an hour for him in a hospital gown before he came in. While he was doing the procedure, he said it would leave a big scar, which he hadn't communicated to me in the consultation. I would never recommend him to anyone.

Dr. Thayer did my surgery which was difficult and challenging and did not great job. I mostly appreciated the fact that he treated and talked to me like a colleague andmeet me make decisions about which way we would go.

I waited an hour and a half for a consultation that lasted five minutes and sent me a bill for $800.00. His bedside manor is horrible. I would try another plastic surgeon in town.

Referred to Dr. Thayer by my dermatologist for a procedure that was more involved than what she would typically handle in her office. I found him to be very pleasant, knowledgeable and willing to work with me to address my issue in the most efficient way to insure a satisfactory resolution.
