First off, let me say that I never had Dr. Thaler as a primary care physician, instead I had Dr. Thaler as a teacher. He taught a class called Healing, Harming, and Humanism at a local college. He is a terrific teacher and is very knowledgeable when it comes to patient-doctor relationships. He knows how to listen and seems great at diagnosing people's problems. If he's as good a doctor as he is a teacher, then I greatly recommend Dr. Thaler as a physician.
