Accepting new patients

I enjoy the challenges of restoring people to health through my practice. The work I did in biochemistry opened up new approaches for treating complex problems and made me a more detailed clinician.

Not only do you get an honest Doctor that knows what he is doing, Dr. Thomas has a P.A. (Maggie) who is also A+. And Charlene A+ They work as a team to give you the best treatment possible. I am referring friends and family to Dr. Thomas.

Great doctor. He takes your pain seriously and is very honest about what can be done. I appreciate him being straightforward and listening to me. I never felt rushed and he seemed genuinely concerned about my well-being. Also, he had a very positive attitude, even when I was grumpy. I would recommend him to anyone and I would bring my mother and my children to see him.

He is amazing! His bedside manner is always so pleasant! He is also very skilled in what he does. I would send all of my friends and family to him!

I had great concern that my injury might leave me unable to fully do my job or the extracurricular things I love doing, i.e. Jiu Jitsu, exercise, metal forging, etc. Not only was I blown away at the speed of recovery, but I can't say enough about how happy I am with the final result. As an athlete, I fully recommend Dr Thomas to anybody wanting, not only wanting to be able to return to work, but to have the best chance at regaining the full function to perform high-level athletics/vigorous tasks
in ROY WA |
I HAVE EVERY FAITH IN DR. THOMAS, HE IS KIND, COMPASSIONATE, HE REALLY DOES CARE ABOUT EACH PATIENT. HIS EXPERTISE IS BEYOND WHAT I HAVE EVER EXPERIENCED IN ANY OTHER DR. HE HAS PERFORMED HAND SURGERY'S ON ME WITH ONE COMING UP IN THE NEAR FUTURE. I DO HAVE A COMPARISON FOR A GANGLION CYST REMOVAL. THE ONE BY DR THOMAS IS TOTALLY GONE WITH NEARLY INVISIBLE SCAR, THE OTHER IS VERY VISIBLE AND STILL HAS ROOTS OF THE CYST, SO THE TOP OF MY HAND IS LUMPY. HE ALSO HAS A GREAT SENSE OF HUMOR.
in Anderson Island, WA |
First, he was not available for a ridiculous length of time. Then he was suppose to schedule carpal tunnel surgery for me a month ago. Never heard back from him or Staff.
