have a ton of confidence in her expertise. not clear what diagnosis or treatment is but that's because not sure what it is yet. did not feel like she gave enough weight to some of what we or other doctors had said. very confident in what she knows (and probably with reason). what we know matters too and while she listened I could see her dismissing it.

It's a hard procedure. Some visits the muscle that usualy gets Botox don't show the need for Botox. We have to hunt for the muscles that are needing it. We have to work as a team, sometime I have to guide to the troubled area hopeing it's the right place & will do what it is ment to do.

Dr. Thulin is the best neurologist I've seen in YEARS. I'd never go to anyone else. She knows what she's doing, how to manage my physical needs, and how to help me each time I come.

February 21, 2016
Dr. Thulin does her best to provide excellent patient care, though it's obvious she is handling far too many patients.

February 13, 2016
I came with a list of questions and concerns which were not addressed. I felt they were brushed aside without any explanation or consideration. I felt like her diagonalises and recommendation of seeing a psychiatrist was a poor excuse for not being able to say that she didn't know what is wrong with me.

I feel like my time is important too. After waiting for over 1 hour for the dr. to finally see me, I felt she was very hurried and it seems to be the norm for these appointments.

December 17, 2015
Dr Thulin always takes time with us and we appreciate it very much. She seems to be the very top of things about Parkinson's which gives us confidence Max is receiving the care he needs.

I was totally engaged in the exam.

December 09, 2015
first of visit okay but felt like not enough time was allotted when followup care and instructions were being given, doctor was in a hurry and left out some vital information

We would refer others for certain.

November 02, 2015
the whole experience was excellent.

October 03, 2015
My increase of symptoms seems so complicated, so I think Dr. Thulin gets to the main cause of the problem well. I feel frustrated when trying a new approach with the medications as I know that I will need to check in with her if the first approach doesn't work and my best option to do that is My Chart. That is a good tool, but I would like to talk to her more often if that were possible. A few days of suffering while trying a new drug regimen can seem like a very long time.

September 14, 2015
Dr. Thulin continues to be a very caring and approachable provider. She is one in a million as far as we are concerned.

Dr. Thelin was very caring yet super professional

Hippie Paisley Bag Hobo Large Hot Crossbody BTP Cotton Pink Thai Print Pl18 Sling Purse Messenger July 30, 2015
The doctor was very good and thorough, she did come in kind of skeptical about my age and having this condition, however through the course of the exam it did lessen up as she determined that I did have this. And was very kind and explained everything to me. But at the end of the appointment she mentioned that she was running late and that was the end of the appointment, kind of abrupt.

July 30, 2015
Dr. is very knowledgeable and inspires confidence. She speaks clearly and explains things very well.

She doesn't rush you out. She has been late before but not to much. I am okay with that because she is giving a good exam to a patient and she will do the same for me.

Good experience. this is the third or fourth neurologist I have seen since being diagnosed with PD. Dr thulin is miles ahead of all the rest. I was impressed with my visit

September 30, 2013
Dr. Thulin is very thorough and caring, which we greatly appreciate. 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.

i don't think i could have a better doctor or staff.

April 08, 2013
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. But, I realize she knows a lot more about CD than I do and what is best for me. She had to rearrange her sched. so she can see me again in two weeks.

March 11, 2013
Always includes me in decisions on my own health care and what we can do...talks to other doctors with concerns and questions

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

March 28, 2012
Considering the problems I was having during the appointmnent--I was very pleased with the visit.

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.
