in Conyers, GA |
Dr. Tomares removed 3 discs and fused 5 discs. (Excuse my laymen language.). It's been 3 weeks. I am doing so well. I suffered for over a year (before I went to Dr T) with herniated and bulging discs. My sciatica rendered me house bound. I fully believe once I'm fully recovered from surgery, I will have life back! We tried less-invasive procedures first, but fusion was the only option for me. Dr. Tomares, John, Donna and Carrie are a top-notch team. Very assessable!

Dr. Tomaras is a great surgeon with a gentle, easy going manner. He explains the details associated with your care plan well. His assistant John is compassionate and hands. The office staff is pleasant. However, calls are not returned quickly; on occasion, I had to place multiple calls with voice mail to get a call back by the third day after initial call. Would have returned to Dr. Tomares for more surgery, but he doesn't take Tricare. Sorry but the military secures your freedom to work.

Very Down to earth, Very well informed, Great personality, and listens to his patients. Would Def. Recommend !!
in Atlanta, GA |
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.
in Cartersville, GA |
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!
