Best Physician ever

I became a patient of Dr Thrower's in 2001 shortly after my Dx with MS. He and his team have seen me through all stages of getting diagnosed. I was angry and took it out on them, yet he still listened and gave comforting words to help. He is the most knowledgeable guys I have ever met yet. Always got the right care at the right time. Anything new comes out he always kept me informed. Any question I had he always had an answer.

Excellent Physician

I have been Dr. Thrower's patient for over a decade. He takes the time to listen to his patients and strives to treat the whole patient, not just the MRI. I would highly recommend Dr. Thrower and the Shepard team to anyone with Multiple Sclerosis.
