Wonderful surgeon

Dr. Thayer did such an amazing job on my double mastectomy that the plastic surgeon was able to do reconstruction immediately. I have no regrets about choosing Dr. Thayer and would highly recommend her to anyone (and already have).

Top notch surgeon!

Dr. Thayer made me feel like I was the only patient she had. Her bedside manner was superior. She took the time to explain my surgery and made sure I completely understood I was very fortunate to be her patient and was very sorry to hear she was leaving Boston

Loved her personality, openess, honesty and humor. Made me feel extremely comfortable and totally informed me as to my situation. I was diagnosed elsewhere and I have not had any follow-up visits yet .

Highly recommended.

I was referred to Dr. Thayer by another surgeon at MGH, whom I have an extensive history with and trust her opinion. I had a large abdominal hernia, which was complicated by extensive adhesions from prior surgeries. Dr. Thayer was calm and confident, and took her time with me explaining how she would do the surgery and what I could expect during the recovery period. Two other surgeons at different hospitals told me the surgery could not be done laparoscopically, but Dr. Thayer said she would do her best to avoid a large incision. She was able to complete it laparoscopically, with the surgery taking 4+ hours. I know many doctors would convert to an open incision rather than spend that much time, but Dr. Thayer was persistent. I was out of the hospital the next morning and back to work in 2 weeks. I found her staff pleasant and easy to get a hold of. I know Dr. Thayer is considered a genius with pancreatic cancer surgery, but she's also just as talented in other types of general surgery.

Great MD but her assistant is horrific

What a great,smart and kind physician! And what a dreadful assistant Dr Thayer has! I really do not think she should be representing this womans practice. Rude,annoyed with the patients and condescending . She made me feel like a nuisance and clearly showed me that she hates her job!
