The office staff and doctor very efficient. I appreciated the doctor and his assistant nurse did not waste time, the doctor got right to the point of my situation.
Patient | February 20, 2018
Excellent bedside manner.... a 10. Very personable and caring. Made it obvious his main concern was me. Wish all my Vanderbilt doctors had his work ethics and attitude.
Patient | February 20, 2018
I could not be happier with Dr. Thager.
Patient | February 9, 2018
Good.
Patient | January 25, 2018
Dr. Thayer made it very clear to me, he did not have time to listen to me and after five minutes he was 1/2 in the exam room and half in the hall.
Patient | January 4, 2018
Dr. Thayer is one of the best doctor in VAnderbilt.
Patient | December 12, 2017
This was follow up from a double mastectomy and evaluation of tissue expanders. I hope that I wouldn't have to recommend but definitely would if I knew someone with the need
Patient | December 7, 2017
Dr. Thayer was very nice and thorough.
Patient | September 6, 2017
Great professional service. Thank you.
Patient | August 31, 2017
This visit was not explained to me and there was a lot of confusion on both parts
Patient | June 19, 2017
It was very kind of him to see us without an appointment. (We live a good distance from Nashville) we were concerned about the wound.
Patient | June 8, 2017
Dr. Thayer is the best!!
Patient | May 29, 2017
The best!
Patient | May 20, 2017
Wesley seems to be a competent physician. He spent very little time with me and, at each visit, appeared very hurried and stretched for time. One example of an area for improvement - I had to petition the nurse for information concerning scar minimization. Wesley never addressed this topic and left the room before we could have a discussion on the topic.
Patient | April 30, 2017
As above left alone for close to an hour without being told by anyone what was going on - provider was with me less than 15 min. to explain a surgical procedure.
Patient | April 24, 2017
I had an appointment Thursday! Now I'm waiting for x-ray results. Dr. Thayer is professional and above and beyond!!! Also before my first hand surgery about 10 people at Vanderbilt said he was one of The Best on all levels. I have to agree. Some of my family met him and they thought he was professional and above & beyond the call of duty~as well!!! Thanks Immensely!!! You are lucky to have him and his team!!!
Patient | April 17, 2017
Acts as if he is in a hurry and rushes appointments along as fast as possible.
