I’ve been going to Dr Thomas since I moved to Georgia in 1999 . I fully trust his decisions about my health and his opinions on how to treat my health. He’s very easy to talk to and he explains things in a way I can understand. Dr Thomas doesn’t play around if he feels you need to see a specialist he will tell you & get you that dr. He’s the best! Thank you Dr. Thomas for all you do to keep my health in check.

I am 48 years old and I have seen probably 15-20 Drs. Because of my health issues in the past 28 years. Dr. Joseph is in my top three of 10 star doctors. No kidding. If you see him and don’t feel the same your next dr should be a psychiatrist.

My husband and I both use Dr. Thomas. We both find him thorough and truly concerned about our health needs. I don't feel like i am at a patient mill as i did with Valdosta family medicine. Thank you Dr. Thomas for your professionalism and time to explain everything so we can understand.

Dr. Thomas was our (my husband's as well as mine) primary care physician for 6 going on 7 years & we always considered him to be a fine doctor, very smart, very concerned for his patients.We also considered him a friend. All of a sudden one day we checked our mail & we got a couple of registered, signed for receipt of letters from Dr. Thomas firing us from being his patients. The letters really didn't explain why but we're sure he had his reasons. We still think of him as a friend & a great Dr.
