Dr. Thame was very nice! BUT we felt rushed. He was very quick to schedule tests & move on.
Patient | July 20, 2018
Dr. Thame has been very friendly and professional. My son is very comfortable with him, where he is normally nervous.
Patient | July 10, 2018
MD forgot to put the Rx in so it took me 6 days to get it filled. Would not give me anti-nausea meds, so my son vomited 4-6x each day before getting Rx.
Patient | June 27, 2018
The doctor kept referring to my son's twin sisters? He's an only child. Didn't seem to know who he was seeing and was very condescending.
Patient | June 17, 2018
On a scale of 1-5, we give Dr. Thame a 10! He fit us into his schedule when he was already booked because our prior GI specialist was ineffective, yet he always makes time to care for us thoroughly. We are finally seeing progress thanks to his care.
Patient | April 19, 2018
He didn't know Jack - Had us confused w/another patient. Keep referring to his twin sisters? Jack's an only child. He seemed uninterested, got us to GI, and never answered questions & no call after GI ultrasound.
Patient | January 20, 2018
We tell everyone how amazing Dr. Thame is. We drive 4 hours to see him.
Patient | December 12, 2017
Very good with my child, explained info to us well.
Patient | October 6, 2017
Words can not describe how wonderful Kirk Thame is. We came to Kirk Thame for a second opinion and we met with him once and we were pleased. He answered so many questions that other doctors did not. Kirk took his time and went through everything step by step.. My family is from Bean Station that is around three hours away with time change, and I will continue to drive to see Kirk Thame. Kirk Thame is the best gastroenterologist.
