Ratings for Dr. Erica Thaler
Do not get any surgery from this Dr. She has really caused problems in my nose. She was supposed to fix my deviated septum but instead she took too much of my turbinates out. She also ruined the appearance of my nose. She also left a spur on one side of my nose. I have to sleep on one side because I cant breathe when I lay on the other side due to the spur. I cant enjoy hot weather or heat since the turbinates are too small they do not produce enough moisture. I specifically asked her not to take too much of the turbinates out but she did anyway. I have been suffering with what she did now for over 2 years. I will probably have to pay over $2000 to get stem cells put into my nose to reconstruct my turbinates and I know she wont be paying for it. Just go to someone else if you can. I would never go back to her for anything
She's great for surgery, but other than that, you don't see much of her. Her nurse returns all emails and phone calls. Follow-up appointments are done by an ENT resident, not Dr. Thaler, even though you made an appointment with her (you and your insurance company will be billed as if Dr. Thaler took the appointment, though). The residents' quality varies so post-surgical care may not be as good as if she did it herself.
I wish I had met Dr.Thaler earlier than 2006. She has improved my quality of life tremendously! She is a wonderful surgeon and caring doctor. She truly doesn't spend a lot of time examining patients but she has made excellent decisions regarding my health.
I have been under the care of Dr. Thaler for several years. She is an excellent physician who genuinely cares about her patients. I have found her to actively listen to my complaints and respond with compassion. I have received great medical care from her. I would recommend her to any of my family and friends.
I came to this practice after having unsuccessful sinus surgery with another ENT. Dr. Thaler was thorough, took her time answering my questions, and was able to evaluate my symptoms with tools and technology all within the office. Since beginning the recommended treatment plan, I require less office visits and have had almost no infections. I highly recommend Dr. Thaler.
