Dr. Thomas' bio

This content was provided by Dr. Thomas "I am a Hoosier and was born and raised in Hamilton, Indiana. Growing up I always dreamed of living in the Southwest US. Through my travels, I have come to learn that northern Indiana suits me well and is home. I enthusiastically returned to Indiana in 2007. It is hard for me to imagine any other career than medicine. My interests are varied and medicine allows me to be a care provider, teacher and scientist. It has afforded me a good and fulfilling life which I invest back into my two girls. I have been science oriented since I was very young. My uncle is a Family Practitioner in Wickenburg Arizona and I remember admiring his role in his small desert town. I didn't have exposure to the various specialties in medicine until my clinical years of medical school. Truthfully there were many different fields of medicine that interested me. Urology seemed to fit best as it was a nice balance of surgery and clinic. I also felt urologists tended to be funny and easier to engage. As I learned more about myself I realized that I can connect easily with others and talk about anything with anyone especially sensitive topics. I learned during residency that urologic patients tended to have treatable diseases and patients were very grateful. It was during those long days and nights of calls that I fully appreciated Mark Twain's quote. "A kind comment can power me for a week." After residency, I was an Assistant Professor at University of Tennessee. I enjoyed teaching resident urologists. It was difficult for me professionally to leave an academic position. After moving back to Indiana, I actively sought to be volunteer faculty at Indiana University School of Medicine. Through this position, I train Family Practice residents and teach medical schools students. I hope that at least some of these future providers stay in our community. I have a varied private practice. I estimate 2/3 of my patients are male and 1/3 are female. 3/4 are over 50. I see some pediatric patients. I have been fortunate to care for our Veterans for nearly 20 years now. I love the sign outside our local VA Medical Centers that reads "The Price of Freedom Can Be Seen Here" and take those words to heart. My philosophy with doctor-patient interaction is straight forward. I favor shared medical decisions and encourage two wat communication. I suspect most patients would describe me as a likable guy that can engage in plain conversation about any urologic issue. My interests include traveling with my 2 girls and my dog. The 4 of us have a lot of fun together. I am hopeful my girls stay inspired with education and I suspect that medicine may be something they explore in the future. "
