Patient Comments (6)
in Arkadelphia, AR |
I found Dr. Thomas to be polite, professional, knowledgeable, and willing to take the time to listen to my concerns. After a general discussion of the nervous system and the scope of his practice he performed a thorough examination and offered his diagnosis with several possible courses of treatment. It was decided that a conservative approach would be attempted first with more aggressive measures to be considered if this was not successful. To date the treatment has been successful.

Doctor can't spell so what else can't he do? I wouldn't recommend this doctor to an enemy I hate, much less someone who needs legitimate neurologic care. If zero stars was an option that's what I'd choose. Go elsewhere for your neurologist needs.

He's a very nice man and I really hoped and thought he would be the one to help me. I've had some symptoms for twenty years. I filled out pages of info. I hadn't finished all the paperwork when the nurse called me back. When he came in he picked up the papers and didn't even read them. A lot of this started in my late 30's and early forties. My legs hurt most of the time. He said I was getting older. It was then I gave up then on finding out what was wrong with me.

Dr. Thomas and his staff are extremely caring and patient with their patients. He takes the time the patient feels is necessary to treat the patient. He explains his diagnosis in terms the patient can understand and talks to them on their level.

At my first appointment, Dr. Thomas spent over an hour taking my history and listening to my concerns. He seemed genuinely interested in helping me address my health issues.
