I recently experienced a heart attack and was told I had 90% blockage and needed bypass surgery. Dr. Donald Thomas performed the Triple bypass. I have complete confidence in recommending Dr. Donald Thomas MD as the surgeon to use for open Heart surgery. His staff is also to be complimented. They all have a wonderful bedside manner, very friendly, very ex-planetary as to what was needed, the risks, the procedures, precautions to take after the operation. I feel I'm blessed that they were available for me. Thank you!!

He explained himself fully and assured me the surgery would go well and reassured me not to worry. He was extremely confident and was very pleasant to talk with. He answered all my questions pre-surgery and on my follow-up visit, he was extremely thorough in my examination and answered all of my question. He talked to me; not down to me and made sure I understood what the next steps in my recovery process were.

Absolutely top notch care. Performed bypass surgery that was very successful and I experienced a very rapid recovery, getting home five days after. Took the time to explain everything that was going to happen in detail and even had a PowerPoint presentation on his phone to walk me through every step. Very honest on the pros and cons.

Dr. Thomas was extraordinary! He was more than I could have ever asked for in a doctor. He was attentive, explained things thoroughly and in a manner which was easily grasped. Dr. Thomas helped me to make informed decisions based on my particular heart problems. I was never made to feel like I had been belittled or patronized. Dr. Thomas made certain that all my questions, concerns, and fears had been thoroughly addressed in our time together. The surgery went perfect and I'm very happy!

As I requested, Dr. Thomas was very straightforward and easy to understand when explaining my issues and the solutions. He takes the time to LISTEN and gives direct answers to direct questions. My surgery went without a hitch and is healing nicely. Scar will be minimal. Thanks doc!!

Dr. Thomas replaced my Aortic valve in 2015. The experience was the most positive I could have imagined under the circumstances. Dr. Thomas was communicative, open about the procedure and he promotes the most advanced techniques available. I am going back to him when my pig valve needs replacement in 10+ years!!

Dr. Thomas is a personal friend and as such has recently given me support through a health scare that involved 4 blood clots in my lungs. He was generous with his knowledge and kind and caring in helping my husband and me during my recovery and getting through the emergency room procedures. I have also seen these caring tendencies in all aspects of our friendship. I would not hesitate to ask for Dr. Thomas to be my doctor in any emergency or planned surgery.
