What People Say About Dr. John Thomas III, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

I have a long history of ear issues and surgeries. In my first appointment with him, the doctor spent a total of 2 minutes with me. His exam was the least comprehensive I've ever experienced. He did nothing for me except to instruct me to use ear wax drops daily, which I tried to explain to him I have been repeatedly instructed not to use by other ENT specialists. I have initiated a complaint through my insurance. He should not be practicing.

I went to this doctor aweek ago and received a course of prednisone for an ear problem and was told to use my regular anti-inflammatory eardrops -I go back there 1 week later now with throbbing pain and he told me that there was nothing more that could be done and sent me away -I then booked an appointment with my primary care doctor same day 4 hrs later- learned that I had a raging ear infection!Given ciprofloxacin and eardrops Ciprodex otic -this man is incompetent-never go to him!!
