Dr. Thomas' Care Philosophy

I am a graduate of Central High School here in Kansas City, and I attended Howard University in Washington, D.C. and Meharry Medical College in Nashville, Tennessee. I am a native of Kansas City, Mo and completed my residency in Internal Medicine at UMKC School of Medicine which utilized Truman Medical Center and Research Medical Center for my medical and Nephrology training. Although I don’t actively teach at UMKC or TMC any longer, I am still an Assistant Clinical Professor of Medicine there. I have been in nephrology practice since 1982 and I am the senior partner in my 8 physician practice. I am also the Medical Director for one of 10 area dialysis units my group oversees as well as our Home Dialysis Services. I follow my patients very closely and I am more than concerned about the social issues that might affect their health and wellness. I make myself available to my patients and even return calls in the evening when necessary. I routinely attend continuing medical education seminars to keep updated on the latest breakthroughs in my field. I have a special interest in organ transplantation, and educating the community regarding organ transplantation myths. I have participated in many educational sessions for the minority community regarding chronic kidney disease and encourage live donor transplants.

A specialty is the branch of medicine in which a doctor has completed advanced clinical training and education. Most doctors are board certified in their specialty. To receive the best healthcare for your needs, consider choosing a doctor who specializes in your particular medical condition. A specialist will concentrate on your specific needs and will be familiar with the best methods of treatment. 

Examples of specialists are a pediatrician who focuses on the physical, emotional, and social health of children from birth to young adulthood; or a cardiologist who specializes in diseases and conditions of the heart and blood vessels. 

A doctor may have more than one specialty, along with one or more subspecialties. For instance, a doctor could specialize in internal medicine and have a subspecialty in infectious disease. A subspecialty is a concentration within a specialty. 

Your primary care doctor (who is often a specialist in family medicine or internal medicine) can help you choose the right type of specialist. In fact, some health insurance plans require a referral from your primary care doctor before you visit a specialist.

Dr. Thomas' License & Board Certification

  • Board Certified in Internal Medicine
  • Licensed in Kansas
  • Licensed in Missouri

Why Is Board Certification Important?

Board certification requires extensive training and a rigorous review of a doctor’s knowledge, experience and skill in a medical specialty. Board certification also means that a doctor is actively improving his or her practice of medicine through continuing education. A board-certified doctor is more likely than a non-board-certified doctor to have the most current skills and knowledge about how to treat your medical condition.

Board certification also means that a doctor is actively improving his or her practice of medicine through continuing education. A board-certified doctor is more likely than a non-board-certified doctor to have the most current skills and knowledge about how to treat your medical condition. 

A doctor who is board certified has taken an important step beyond getting a required state medical license to practice. Some doctors choose not to apply for board certification. A doctor who is not board certified may be an excellent doctor who is fully licensed to practice medicine in his or her state. 

If you are considering a doctor who is not board certified, consider asking the doctor why he or she is not certified. This information might provide you important background information to help you decide whether or not to see that doctor.
