My 41 yr old husband was diagnosed with a type of lymphoma. Dr. Thomas, was amazing to us. He walked us through everything. Hugged me and reassured me our family would get through this trying time. I feel confident with him and his staff. God placed him in our life for a reason and we are grateful Dr.Thomas is ready to fight along Beside us!

Used to be very good, but declined since joining Candler. Have experienced medication errors, billing errors, lack of continuity of care. Poor communication....nurses never give clear explanations or provide through respones to questions. Used to see doctor then got shifted to nurse practitioner without any discussion with patient/family as to why the change was made. Doctor has not seen patient for 2 years. Lost confidence in how this practice is run. Looking for a different doctor.

Dr. Thomas is professional yet very personable and gives you lots of eye contact as he thoughtfully explains your medical situation. I was there with my 95 year old dad and Dr. Thomas treated dad with respect and spoke to him loud enough that dad could hear him. He can give bad news without mincing words and will always give his expert opinion. His nurse and the front desk personnel were all great. I would highly recommend this office.

Gary Thomas and his phenomenal staff are totally dedicated to making a life changing cancer diagnosis as pain and stress free as possible. I consider myself extremely fortunate to have been referred by Duke Cancer Center to Dr Thomas as offering the best possible outcome in my cancer treatment Dr Thomas was with me every step of the way and even contacting me late at night or on weekends when necessary. His dedication and service to cancer patients is remarkable and appreciated by so many
