Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Thomas "Patients deserve quality, compassionate and thorough care. I am a Mayo Clinic-trained physician and I am thrilled to offer my expertise to the San Diego and Chula Vista area.? I was inspired to become a physician because my father was chronically ill when I was a child and I always admired his doctors. I wanted to help other families the way they helped mine.? In my spare time, I enjoy spending time and playing with my twin children. I am also an avid sports fan."

in Chula Vista, CA
Saved my life many times. Even when I wasn't listening to him and continued to drink and not take the medication he never gave up on me. He's even gotten me into ucsd medical center. I will always owe him.

Smooth process for me.....got scoped and checked out. He also listened to me regarding my condition and I soon had relief for my IBS.

The office is like a factory for patients. They have so many people, patients and staff, running around, they seem more concerned about generating profits than taking care of people and taking the time to accurately diagnose and understand their patients. I met with Dr. Thomas for about 5 minutes...more

After waiting more than an hour past my appointment time, in a tiny, cramped office that was overflowing with patients, I was told that I would not be seen that day and they would gladly reschedule me.
