Having had DBS surgery at UVA, I attend the clinics Dr. Thomas holds for ongoing evaluation of the procedure. I feel so fortunate to be able to see her; she never rushes, spends ample time answering your questions and always gives a thorough neurological examination. She is the perfect blend of genuinely friendly and concerned plus professional. Because a representative of the maker of the device used is also present, I feel everything is extremely well covered at my appointments.
