    Dr. Thomas is a very personable physician who takes time to listen to your concerns and provide you the best care possible. He not only hear you but see you as a person first and treat you with the respect and concern one would expect from his Doctor. I was at my wits end after having suffered with my eye condition for almost 2 years with no resolve in sight. He took time to explain to me about my condition and what was needed at the time to reign in the monster that had taken over my life. He attentively put my fears to rest and I was empowered to better understand what was needed to keep the monster at bay and what to do if it reared its' ugly head again. Dr. Thomas was recommended to me by another physician for his expertise in further resolving my medical condition. Both he and the Staff at TN Retina are absolutely superb. As a testament to his expertise and concern for his patients, I drive from Memphis to Nashville (300 mi.) for his continued medical care when needed.
