Ratings for Dr. Norman Thie
I have visited Dr Thie's, office several times. He is an expert in his field and looked at his curriculum vitae on his website and is a researcher and has published numerous papers, has given countless seminars. He is a professor at the U of A. He is kind and his career and office is focused on helping people. His staff are courteous/sincere and treatment is directed at a diagnosis. He answered all my questions regarding my jaw and facial pain. He discusses thoroughly what I need and don't need. I travel hours to only see him. CAREFUL on what you read on this website to judge a professional office and doctor. Unfortunately as they say you cant please everyone.
Dr Thie has a wonderful welcome to the office each visit from front reception, into clinic area, providing a comfortable and private surrounding to discuss my concerns, examination, diagnosis. The treatment staff in advance discuss coordinating and outlining my care within the office. His clinical staff are awesome on follow-up visits and enjoy their promptness and courtesy with me in all respects. Sincerely.
This was my first apt at this clinic, out of the three clinics I've gone to for my tmj issues this one by far is the best so far staff was very helpful. The doctor had great bed side manner this is a huge plus and is huge to me .. Looking Forward to dealing with this clinic .
Seemed to lose all interest in me as a patient when I told him that my dentist had charged me for the splint. I'm imagining that's what his surly attitude and asking "so you paid your dentist for it?" twice were about.
i have visited Dr Thie's, office several times. His staff have been courteous and polite each time I've been there.He answered all my questions regarding TMJ and has put together a plan for the next few months. i already have found relief . i see now why my Doctor referred me to him!
Very unprofessional. 5 minutes for $300. Didn't answer any of my questions and was more concerned with joking around with the ladies at the front desk during my appointment than addressing my concerns.
My sons were referred to this doctor by our Orthodontic specialist for TMJ assessment and treatment. Our experience could not be worse. We were overcharged for a dental attention that was quite mediocre. After a very expensive two assessment visits and an incredible expensive MRI, the charge for the TMJ splint and follow up visits was $1500. The follow up consisted only on a 2 minutes visit where Dr. Thie barely looked at my son's mouth and asked him to book the next appointment. After only two visits the so called Dr. Thie got mad because my son got his braces and in a very rude way turned his back to him and just said "see you in 2 years, as you did not supposed to have braces until you finish your TMJ treatment". How do you know what treatment goes first if you are not a dentist? He suppose to give you that kind of advice. When my Orthodontic specialist called his office to ask for the MRI results she was told they were not releasing any information. To this day we have been at his office three times to get an explanation and were never able to speak to Dr. Thie as the front desk personnel always says he is not available. We have called several times and we have been promised that somebody will call us back but that never happens. I will not recommend my family or friends to see this doctor, and my Orthodontist regrets the day she referred us to him.
