Ratings for Dr. David S. Thoman
Honestly after reading the reviews on his lack of bedside manner I almost cancelled my consultation the day before. It is important to me to be able to have a surgeon I trust and can feel comfortable with in communication. I am glad I kept the appointment. He performed the Nissen Fundoplication surgery on me yesterday and I am already home and healing. He took his time and explained everything, even my list of probably silly questions. He is obviously a skilled surgeon but I didn't get the feeling that he was full of himself like other reviews. Physicians need to realize our time is as valuable as theirs, I probably have as much education as he does, he probably (X that he does) makes a LOT more money than I do but so what. I didn't get the feeling he was stuck up at all. I would recommend anyone in my family to go to him for excellent service!
Most unpersonable doctor I've ever met, and I've known hundreds by working in healthcare for many years. The problem goes beyond the lame "poor bedside manner" excuse given for unfriendly and arrogant doctors; I believe he really doesn't give a hoot about the patient as a person. He doesn't explain anything, and he's a poor listener. I agree the guy is a world-class surgeon, but refuse to recommend him because of his personality deficits and poor attention to a patient's degree of comfort or ability to care for themselves.
