A bonus we received was her observance of and treatment for an excessive saliva condition for which we did not visit the neurology center. She observed the condition, suggested a particular treatment, and thoroughly discussed possible benefits, and side effects of the treatment. We elected to have the treatment and Dr. Thulin was able to accomplish the procedure in the same afternoon. Thank you.

Dr. Thulin is worth the wait. She is willing to listen and try to address my concerns. I was supposed to get botox but she felt I was not ready which upset me.

We felt like care provider was in a hurry and didn't have time to listen to both client and spouse.

April 26, 2012

Dr Thulin was much more informative this time. Sometimes she doesn't explain things very well or go into detail about my particular symptoms. Like what symptoms I am having and how we can get them to subside. I wasn't even aware of what symptoms the Parkinsons was causing until they started to go away. I thought the pain in my legs and stiffness was caused by worn out knee. I would have liked her to explain to me that the symptoms I was having was caused by PD. She was much friendlier

January 05, 2012

Dr. Thulin makes me feel like I am of special interest to her and that my problem is unique and she s trying to fine out the reason so she can solve the problem.

January 04, 2012

I never felt rushed.
