I have gone to Dr Thomas in the past and just recently for a torn ligament. He ordered an MRI which revealed another issue. Just to be thorough, given my medical history, he ordered another test which would rule out any immediate/long-term problems. He is is what all doctors should aspire to be, professional, courteous and patient focused. Thanks again Doc.

I recently underwent a Total Hip Replacement with Dr Thomas. I could not have been happier with my experience and result. From his caring and open bedside manner to his surgical expertise he was awesome through the whole process. I feel like a new man. I would gladly reccomend him to any of my friends and family.I dont think I could feel any better than I do right now

I had a ACL reconstruction back in 2008 by Dr Thomas.... It was workers comp and he never once tried to put me off on a lesser doctor because of my payer source.... He was very upfront with everything, and extremely easy to just talk with to calm nerves I never recommend anyone but him.

Dr. Thomas did my right tkr in Dec 2016. Recovery was exactly as he described. I was well prepared for each step and my knee is perfect. He is a highly skilled surgeon and an incredibly caring physician. My son is touring colleges right now, which is why I desperately needed this replacement. Last year, I couldn't have done them. Yesterday was the first one since surgery and I was able to do the whole tour with NO PAIN! I recommend Dr. Thomas to anyone experiencing joint pain. He is the best!

Failed to prescribe a common arthritis medication following knee surgery, despite multiple visits and complaints of ongoing pain for MONTHS following surgery. I went to another doctor who prescribed low-dosage meloxicam, and I was pain-free within three days. I lost months of my life to persistent pain and Dr. Thomas's lack of basic care.

Family of 6 going to Dr Thomas for over 15 years. He is simply the best. Very friendly, extremely knowledgable, and conveys it well. can't say enough about him. Early on I forgot dr Thomas name and guessed wrong one and I had one bad Dr there and he is long gone. Other specialty doctors there that Dr Thomas recommends are great. I trust him and his advice. All four of my kids and I see him.
