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.
Patient | July 31, 2017
No meds or follow-up care.
Patient | May 27, 2017

Patient | May 9, 2017
Dr. Thame was very nice & considerate, thorough & clear.
Patient | April 26, 2017
Provider asked no questions about previous results and results concerning our child. Spoke to me and my husband as if we were under educated and over reacting to our sons condition we've dealt with for 8 years.
Patient | April 13, 2017
Dr. Thame always takes time to explain everything, love the dr.
Patient | February 20, 2017
Dr. Thame was kind and courteous. he was funny and not only talked to me but also my child. I appreciate his time he took with us and our many questions. As this was my first ever visit to Vanderbilt, he left a great first impression.
