"Great preceptor with experience teaching and exposes students to a wide array of issues."
"I was allowed to see patients and completely work with them up on my own and make my own decisions about how to appropriately manage their care before the attending came in."
"Dr. Thrift was also very patient and generous with his knowledge - both in the science and art in caring for their populations of patients. He really opened my eyes about the amount of activities you can be involved in when you are a primary care doc."
