Dr. Thomas is by far the best surgeon I have ever had. He explained my upcoming procedure very well I am at ease. He also explained my xrays, and explained post care. I highly recommend him to friends and family that would have to have surgery

Had a pilonidal cyst. I went in for a surgery consultation. We concluded that the care requirements would keep me out of work for too long, so we decided to just drain it for now. I have had this done in the past with Army "doctors". It was extremely painful. THIS TIME, I felt almost nothing. Extremely satisfied.

I was surprised and shocked when Dr Thomas wanted to schedule a major surgery before seeing the results of the radiation and chemo treatments I had. Those test results were explained to me as totally inconclusive until six weeks after the treatments ended. I was told in the beginning of my treatment that surgery MIGHT be necessary, and it would probably be a much simpler procedure than is now being discussed. It's all very confusing and unsettling.

Dr. Thomas review my records before he came in to the room and that is not always the case . He was knowledgeable and took all of my medical issues in to consideration before planning a treatment . Dr. Thomas was wonderful . Some of y'all younger surgeons could and should take notes , I understand they usually deal with people when there sleeping but bed side manners matter and being knowledgeable about the person past medical history . If you look at my records you'll see I've seen my fair share and spend much more time at or in the hospital/clinic than I want to . Dr Thomas has my respect and I'd trust what he tells me .
