Dr. Thomas has a very good bedside manner. I had to have an operation on my eye and when the operation was to be done he came in I felt very confident of him and of the anesthesiologist. In the office he is very kind and listens to you and he also gives all information needed and answers all my questions. I really enjoyed Dr. ThomasAs an eye specialist. I recommend him highly!

He is an amazing doctor and the rare exception of many. He truly cares about his patients as well as his staff dose. I've been a patient in BWSK for a long time and I'm happy with him taking over my care however I really miss one of the girls who has been coming there for a long time. Ashley she always goes above and beyond and she is truly missed in the GA offices. She truly cares for each and every patient and is extremely intelligent. She is a huge loss to the team he first started with
