Love my results!

I am much more confident now When I went to see Dr. Thayer, I was having so many problems trying to fit in clothes and bras. I had one breast that was so much bigger than the other. I felt terrible about it. She spent the time to explain everything to me and my surgery was wonderful. I can't tell you how much this has changed my life. I never thought I could look this good. I'm so happy!

A True Medical Professional

Dr. Thayer is direct, professional and talented. She went above and beyond when taking care to ensure I was satisfied with the results I got from my treatment. She has a "no frills" demeanor but in a very professional way, do not be put off by it, her talent and attention to what I was looking for exceeded any expectations I could have had. Not only is this a beautiful office with a talented surgeon but they run a very ethical and customer service based business.

breast cancer survivor

dr Thayer was the best choice for me for my reconstructive surgery .I now live in south Texas and thought I was having issues with implant but when I saw dr Robert Fernandez he said her surgical skills were amount the best he has ever seen!! He gave her accoulades..she also used the same brand of implant his practice uses. I give dr Thayer a big THANK YOU for helping me understand and educate me on the road to normalcy after my diagnosis

Five Stars

Dr. Thayer recently performed my breast cancer reconstruction. From the initial consultation, in which she spent 45 minutes discussing my options, to the care after surgery, she has been wonderful. She is very detail oriented and I can tell she really cares about her patients. Her office staff is top-notch as well. I would recommend her to all my friends and family.
