Dr. Thuku and his staff are very friendly and professional. They care about their patients. Dr. Thuku is thorough when he does his exams and being a patient of his for a few years; has helped my pain issues immensely without the use of medications. I would recommend him to anyone having the same issues as I do. I also want to note the nurses are friendly and professional and communicate well. I had an insurance issue recently and they worked hard to communicate with me effectively and go above and beyond to help me with the issues I had with my insurance company. Dr. Thuku and his entire staff are an asset to McFarland Clinic.

Hands down the best experience I've had with Dr. Thuku and his team. I feel heard and like my concerns are valid. They didn't waste time and took me at my word. They have fun while being efficient which is not as common as you'd think. I already feel like I'm on the road to a solution, and that's a relief in itself. Thank you!

Dr. Thuku, along with his entire staff, have the compassion and kindest that is very hard to find these days. From the front desk receptionist, Hannah, to Susan his nurse, as well as other nurses I have seen at his new location, they have all kept me notified in advance if there were any changes from appointments to insurance issues and responding in a timely manner to any questions or concerns I had about my condition. Dr.Thuku has been a true blessing. His professional, yet caring approach, sets a very healthy and positive atmosphere throughout his entire office.
