      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!

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
