I saw dr. Thampy for a number of years for a somewhat rare condition. His bedside manner was never good and appointments were always extremely late! I stayed because of how knowledgeable he was, how helpful his staff was, and the fact that he discovered my condition. 2 years before I quit seeing him his nurses and staff were almost completely different. They then didn't return calls, wouldn't refill or refilled prescriptions wrong, and were berry rude sometimes. They seemed to want to get me in and out. My wife got new insurance which was a great excuse for me to quit seeing him.

My experience has been great. He is kind... will help you with the medicines. They spend a lot of time with their patients... great staff. It is busy at his office because he is a quality doctor.

He is not patient friendly; doesn't communicate well and seems to be irritated if his ideas are questioned.

Seems to not want to discuss issues with patient. Very long wait times to see him even when appts are scheduled early.

Do not waste your time with this specialist. I lost (2) years of my life because of his apathy and lack of knowledge. He is also the most arrogant physician I have ever met.

Would not go back to him. He did not even tell me what I had. I had to find out fot myself. What a waste of money and time. Seeing another MD that is very helpful and willing to talk to me an address my health issues. Dr. Thampy did not address my health issues or talk to me about them.

I decided after today I am wasting my time and money going to Dr. Thampy. He did bloodwork and a thyroid ultrasound. He said I have nodules on my thyroid and, regardless of having so many symptoms and problems associated with hypothyroidism, he will not treat. Just tells me to take vitamins! Obviously the year's worth of vitamins he keeps prescribing are not working. Meanwhile the problems associated with the thyroid are running rampant. So, if you don't mind waiting an hour plus beyond your appointment time every visit and you like taking high quantities of vitamins, I'd say run, don't walk to another doctor.

Dr. Thampy is the best doctor I have ever seen. I first met him in the hospital in September 2011. I had pancreatitis and he has taken over my pancreatitis and diabetes treatment. Regarding the complaints on this site (punctuality, bedside manner, and checking feet), Dr. Thampy's pre visit paperwork says your visit will be 2-3 hours (he got me out in just over 2). The exam room has a placard that says to remove your shoes upon entering the exam room and my feet were checked by his nurse. It also states that you are not to discuss other conditions and internet articles with the doctor and staff. He expects his patients to come prepared,follow his professional advice and I came ready with questions, ready to listen and to do what what I was told and I was treated very well by both the doctor and staff. I would recommend him to anyone with diabetes
