ignorant doctor

My 1 yr old son broke his arm and had to see Dr. Theiss after ED visit. Dr. Theiss didn't even look at my son's hand or check for circulation since he had cast on. He just went to the computer to dictate and prescribed another X-ray. I cancelled my next visit since he is ignorant for his patient. Do not recommend him.

Doc is great. He is through and caring. I broke both feet and had emergency work done. When the original doctor wouldn't work on them anymore (remove hardware) because of insurance, Doc stepped up and took care of me. I have used him for shoulder pain as well and got excellent results.

Bad Doctor

Dr Theiss misdiagnosed sciatic nerve problem as Plantar Fasciaitis and sent me to a foot doctor who robbed me of $400. for custom insoles. During my appointments he was on the phone most of the tome trying to organize his department doctors. He did not listen to my symptoms and dismissed important clues that I gave him. In the end I had osteoporosis and broke my hip and also had sciatic nerve problems thanks to other doctors for diagnosing that.

This doctor is very honest, and realistic in what to expect from the beginning of treatment until the end, He has seen everyone in my family for years, and I wouldn't think to see another orthopedic doctor in this area.
