    In this day of often minimalistic, impersonal care, Dr. Thoder is a gem: he has always treated me with true kindness and courtesy; he takes ample time answering my questions, and explaining necessary procedures thoroughly; he truly connects with me visually and verbally, and has a wonderful staff - both in the office and in the surgery wing. I consider myself lucky to have him as my hand surgeon!
