the doctor even took the time to print from the internet the thumb wrap he wanted me to get. By doing this I can purchase the item for less than my insurance would be billed for. That is a plus.

Dr.Thoder did a right hand carpal tunnel release surgery on me in 2001. I fell and injured my left hand and wrist and needed his help with that injury. The staff squeezed me into the schedule and I was helped during my visit. i will return for follow up near the end of March.
