We see Dr. Thomas at the Healthmark Clinic in Defuniak. He deserves 100 stars, not a mere 5. The sign in process at the clinic is fairly easy and fast. We have never had a long wait. When you get back to the exam rooms, you are treated with the upmost respect. Dr. Thomas genuinely cares and takes his time with every patient. He listens and interacts with you on a personal level. He is quick to devise a plan of action to take care of whatever medical issue you may be having. His surgery skills are unmatched and a tremendous asset to Defuniak Springs and surrounding areas. Healthmark Regional is blessed to have Dr. Thomas on staff.

If I could give a zero I would. He made several extreme errors and almost cost my husband his life.

This doctor almost killed me. I went in for resection of my stomach and removing polyp When I was under anesthesia for 19 hours and got septic shock. I was in ICU for a month and Health South for another month. Do not let him touch you.

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.
