Dr Thomas is one of the best. He "rescued" me from another neurologist that was wanting to fuse the wrong disk causing the insurance to deny the procedure! He performed a disk fusion on me nearly three years ago to relieve severe pain in my neck and left arm. He is very thorough, knowledgeable and walks you through the process and answers any question that you may have and does not make you feel rushed at all. The surgery was a success and I would not hesitate to call on him again.

Dr Thomas is very cautious and his level of patient care is second to none I was blessed to be referred to him. His nurse practitioner, Kali, is awesome. All of his staff are nice and courteous. If you have a problem or concern he's more than happy to see you or talk to you even if the office is closed. I will recommend him to everyone needing his specialty.

Dr. Thomas performed back surgery on my wife 13 February 2017. She had been in horrible, horrible pain for two months prior to surgery. Dr. Thomas did a fantastic job of fixing the problem. We can't say enough positive things about him. Not only is Dr. Thomas a great surgeon, he is compassionate and last but not least a true Christian. He prays for guidance with the patient prior to beginning surgery. In our opinion he is a 10+++++++++++!! C A Phillips Wife Orvilline Leigh Phillips

He was very informative about the surgery. He had the best bed side manner of any Dr. I have ever seen and I have seen a bunch. Before I went to surgery he ask to prayed with me, which made me feel good.

Dr. Thomas performed L5 - S1 fusion Aug. 2013. 18 months post-op I had develped severe scoliosis; lost 3" in ht.,, bowel/bladder incontinence, constant pain, difficulty ambulating.. I was fully compliant with post-op regimen; never missed an appt., completed PT, exercised. Dr. Thomas never expressed concern re surgical outcome. When I pressed him about intervention he would only say "[I don't] do that kind of surgery." He offered no plan of care despite rapidly escalating deterioration

In a scale of 0 to 10, I will give a recommendation of 11. He is a fantastic doctor. His overall attitude is refreshing . He cares about his patients well being and this is seen from every person on his staff to his personalized way of dealing with patients. He is a Christian man, whose patients feel taken care of. I will recommend him without any reservations!

Dr. Thomas is a very good surgeon. He is careful, caring and through. I am very pleased with the results of my spinal fusion.
