The reason why I gave this practice a two-star rating is that the last time that I attempted to be treated by him is they inconsideration and late policy intolerance. Despite having called them nearly 90 minutes beforehand (from Burleson, TX)to notify them that I would be late; they waited until I was 5 minutes from their practice to cancel the appointment last minute. I fully understand that they were adhering to a late policy, but had they known that they would cancel on me last minute, they should have told me immediately following my notifying them before leaving my house. This meant that despite having driven 71.7 miles, they, again, waited until I was less than five minutes away to cancel on me. Therefore, they successfully wasted my time to where I had known that they would cancel on me, I wouldn't have even left my house. This is unacceptable, inconsiderate, and unprofessional. In other words, if you choose to pick this practice, bear in mind that they will cancel last minute if you're even seven minutes late. (Would not recommend) However, the first time that I met him was a pleasurable experience. Too bad this sullied my opinion of him.

He spent good enough time with me to explain my condition to me and understand my concerns. He went through the CT scan results with me and showed me the problem areas on the scan. He explained the next steps andrequested to contact him if I had any questions or concerns. I'd definitely recommend Dr. Thrasher to others.

He really took the time to listen and hear all the things going on with me. Then he was right on point in helping diagnose what is going on with me. This is a problem I have had for over adecade that began to reoccur, and no one previously has ever known what is really going on. He reassured me, gave me great information, answered all my questions, and helped me with a great care plan. I felt so relieved.

Webster's Dictionary doesn't have enough awesome words to describe Dr. Thrasher. He did a thorough exam, explained everything about my condition, displayed sincere, genuine concern and interest and NEVER one time did he look at his watch!I felt like a real patient, not just a number on a time frame. My husband and I left with reassurance that Dr. Thrasher would help improve my quality of life and continue to help me as time goes on. What a tremendous asset. He by far, is definitely the very best God has made. I will be referring many people to him. Sincerely, Linda Clay, Denison, TX
