Excellent excellent Doctor. The last three months have been scary and filled with constant worry that I had thyroid cancer. Dr. Payne treated me and my case with such humility, honesty and excellent care. The medical field should send ALL residents to mimic his bedside manners. He made me feel cared for , answered all my questions, made himself available to me. He deserves all the praise there is. Dr. Payne you are a living angel. Thank you for taking care of me.
After reflecting on a very difficult year, I need to thank Dr. Richard Payne for his skillful work on my thyroid. The first few surgeons that I interviewed were qualified. I felt at ease after meeting Dr.Payne though, knowing immediately that he was the suitable thyroid specialist for my thyroid cancer. He knew every test available and advised me on the correct ones to help me make decisions and understand exactly what was going on before having thyroid cancer surgery. I have recovered both physically and emotionally from my ordeal. If you require thyroid surgery and want to be treated conscientiously leaving no stone unturned, Dr.Payne is the right surgeon for you. Happy New Year Dr.Payne. I would not have made it through this year without you.
Incredible surgeon. From day #1. Professional, compassionate, competent, a real expert in thyroid cancer surgery. Extraordinary doctor. Impressive in all facets of my care. What else can I say????? I APPRECIATE everything that you have done for me Dr. P. I OWE YOU my health.
I am healthy and have never been to a doctor. I am in excelent shape, I do not smoke, and I am a healthy eater. So when I felt a bump on my neck I thought it was nothing. I surfed the internet to get more information. It did not take long for me to realize that the bump was probably coming from my THYROID GLAND. This is when I started to get scared and realized that I needed to see a doctor. A friend of mine who is a physician arranged for me to see Dr. Payne. Dr. Payne was honest and to the point. He did an ultrasound and took a biopsy on the same day that I saw him. I did not have to wait (I liked that, since I wanted to know what that bump was). He explained everything clearly. I was fearful but reassured at the same time (this is hard to explain, but I was). He removed my thyroid gland at the hospital because I had thyroid cancer. I feel great. The scar is small and my voice is perfect. I feel fortunate to have found Dr. Payne. He really took care of me. When I was worried I would E-mail him. He was so accessible all the time (I don't know how). He is an incredible surgeon and human being.
Un medecin spécialiste empathique, souriant, qui sait expliquer les diagnostics clairement, il,fait équipe avec son patient. Extrêmement compétent et consciencieux. Il m'a lui même téléphone pour me donner une bonne nouvelle sur les résultats d'un test...merci! Un Dr formidable!
Le docteur Payne est à la fois un chirurgien brillant et humain. Il y a quelques mois j'ai été diagnostiqué avec un cancer agressif de la thyroïde. À cela s'ajoutait le risque d'abîmer ma corde vocale puisque l'un des nodules en était proche. Le docteur Payne a réussi à enlever les nodules cancéreux sans affecter la corde vocale. Par ailleurs, sa personnalité, son professionnalisme et son engagement dans la relation médecin patient m'ont aidé à traverser un moment difficile. Merci encore docteur Payne pour tout.
