He was super tentative and supportive and really seemed to harness my problems and trying squashing them. I left with a prescription that I’m confident will make a positive change in my attitude/behavior and couldn’t be happier with my appointment :)
Means well and it is clear he is knowledgeable at his craft but his is way way way to old to still be doing this. He's essentiall just like any other scenile old man, but happens to somehow still retain his medical license. Good for him for workng hard till the day he does, but certianly wouldn't reccomend him to anyone truly needing help.
David Thornton is, without a doubt, one of the best medical professionals I have received treatment from thus far. What really impresses me about him is how he has proven, time and again, to be even more knowledgeable than many of the doctors I've seen in the same field of medicine as him. Beyond his expertise, he has wonderful bedside manner. It is rare to find someone in the field of medicine who cares about his patients as much as David does. He is a delight to interact with and always listens attentively to what I have to say and gives careful thought about his treatment plan for me. Needless to say, I highly recommend David Thornton and am so grateful to be under his care.
Dr Gundersen seems to be a caring doctor who is responsive to a patients needs and preferences. When interacting with previous physicians in this field I have been routinely encouraged to re-try medications that I have had a dangerous reaction too. Dr Gundersen took my concerns into consideration when choosing medications to try and due to that we were able to find a great balance of benefit/side-effect. That being said, this office, it's policies and behavior towards patients is at best unacceptable and at worst predatory. From a massive fee for being more than a few minutes late to check-in (required >10 minutes prior to appointment start time) for your appointment, to cancellations/rescheduling without apology or explanation (or notification I might add), to a rather large fee they charge you if you'd like have your prescriptions refilled - a full 5 second process. Bizarre, hostile, and unethical are all words I'd use to describe my interactions with the office staff. These people are actually the worst and I will not be returning to their office, despite my good experience with the Dr himself.
She is a very nice woman. Very skilled. But I thought her ideas a bit archaic an behind the times for me. I am progressive, feminist and independent. Her basic beliefs were out of sync with my own.
