GOODUofU Patient September 16, 2016
This is the first time ever that a Dr. has included me in the decision over the fate of my own body. That makes him so much more relatable and gave me confidence that we were working as a real team. So great!UofU Patient August 22, 2016
Bad. It seemed to me that Doctor Thielking and the medical resident, Veertha (sp?) have very poor communication. Doctor Thielking did not seem to be at all concerned about my cancer difficulties and referred to them as "unpleasant." Unpleasant is when the dog has an accident on the floor. Cancer is much, much, much worse especially all the side effects. 1. Poor. I started to offer my hand to shake but he did not offer to shake my hand. 3. None. 8. Less than 20-25 minutesUofU Patient April 23, 2016
I have never had a bad experience at Huntsman, no matter what clinic I am in. I have never felt pushed or waited too long. The doctors have always made me feel that I was the center of attention and I had their full attention. They have always spent adequate time with me as well.UofU Patient April 20, 2016
Dr. Theilking showed respect and concern for my situation and seemed to treat in a way that was individual to me. I felt listened to and encouraged.UofU Patient March 14, 2016

Dr. Thielking is an excellent doctor! He spends time with me, is very easy to talk with, and shows a great deal of understanding of me, medications, my situation etc. I could not ask for a better doctor.UofU Patient October 09, 2014
Dr. Thielking never rushes you in the appointment but as things come up is very helpful in discussing what needs to be addressed and recommending the next plan of action. He has been extremely helpful in resolving my medications and addressing some issues that have been difficult for me to handle.UofU Patient September 03, 2014
I really like the consultation room. It is a lot better than the clinic rooms where it is a small space and sterile environment. I was a lot more comfortable talking to Dr Thielking in the consultation room.UofU Patient July 31, 2014
Dr. Theilking took extra time evaluating my concerns. I really never felt rushed. I know my appointment probably made his next appt. delayed but a really appreciated the extra care and discussion...really professional.UofU Patient July 20, 2014
The Dr. decided against aggressive treatment and wanted to "track" the progression of the cancer with monthly blood tests that were to begin that day. They did not.UofU Patient July 09, 2014

He got Huntsman Cancer Hospital to agree to replace my hearing aid that their nurse accidently threw out last Dec.UofU Patient January 21, 2013
Huntsman has the best physicians in the world. Dr. Thielking has been there for me through thick and thin. I had a real crisis when I saw him last. I was inexplainably upset. I was devastated and he helped me and there was much, much follow up. Others called me after I left because I was so distraught. I have never been treated so well and I truly had a "breakdown" in the office and I was treated with dignity, understanding and compassion by Dr. Thielking and his staff.UofU Patient December 17, 2012
Dr Thielking was wonderful. I am very thankful to him for meeting with my mother and providing her with such good care.UofU Patient October 17, 2012
This was my first visit with this particular care-provider and he was able to very courteously alleviate many of the concerns I had surrounding this visit. I found him to be kind and understanding, and willing to work with me to determine a care plan that would be acceptable for both of us. Thank you.UofU Patient February 29, 2012
