Patient Comments (4)
in Forest Hills, NY |
Dr. Thomas was extremely accommodating. My son shattered a knuckle and Dr. Thomas squeezed him in, both to see him in his office and then perform surgery. He took x-rays in his office, which facilitated the appointment, and explained the difficulties my son faced and what he hoped to accomplish in the surgery. We are most grateful to him.

A true Professional ~ he explains everything to you in complete detail, and does not rush you through. He will try other methods first to avoid surgery when possible, which is why I have such respect for him as a Doctor. I have used him for numerous problems with my fingers/joints/wrist & I have no complaints. One day I unexpectedly broke my finger at the joint, we scheduled surgery and he did an awesome job. Great Staff also!

Dr Thomas is great! I have been a PT of his for many years BUT getting an appointment is not easy and be prepared to wait a long time if seeing him at the Astoria location (never been to the NYC location) Besides the wait and the calling and calling to get an appointment I have no complaints. I trust my hands to no one else
