Portland, OR |
He is a very knowledgeable doctor, willing to discuss hypothesis with patients, and would be honest with you about the possible bad results about the surgeries. I was one of his surgical patients, he did a phenomenal job.
in Portland, OR |
I've had a significant reduction in my ability to project my voice over the past year. I was concerned that it was portent of something serious as it came from out of the blue. My primary physician suggested Dr Thomas and I was quite impressed with his knowledge and willingness to show me how he came to his diagnosis. A very positive experience and I would recommend him highly to any of my friends and family.
