When I was first recommended to Dr. Thomashow, I had seen 3 doctors who just shook their heads negatively. I have COPD. After meeting with Dr. T he put me on oxygen immediately and told me that he was going to help me. It is now 6 years later and thanks to Dr. T I have been off oxygen for the last 5 years and leading a normal life. He has fabulous bedside manner! He is encouraging and the best doctor I have ever known
