Dr. Tomaras took more time than the other doctors in this office. Out of the few I've seen at Polaris, he is the one I would see again, just not at the Polaris location. The other providers' energy is very negative, and only clouds Dr. Tomaras' presence.

Dr. Tomaras literally saved my life. I had been in excruciating pain for over 6 mos. Referred by a friend, When we called, they made the appointment within the week. The following week we scheduled surgery. Being self employed I could not be out for an extended period of time so out-patient surgery was do-able. Awakening from surgery was the 1st time I have ever had a surgery that the the pain being totally gone. Thank you, Dr. Tomaras & your great staff for giving me the best Christmas ever!
