in Panama city beach, FL |
Great surgeon excellent staff. They go above and beyond the call of duty. Really nice people. I had to go to 3 other sugerons that refused to do my sugery and endure months of pain until I was finally referred to Dr Thomas. Dr. Thomas had no problem doing my surgery and booked an operating room right away. Now my stomach feels better and I look better because Dr. Thomas stepped up did my sugery.
