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.

Dr Thielking was wonderful. I am very thankful to him for meeting with my mother and providing her with such good care.

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.
