    Dr. Thomas treated my mother for ovarian cancer. Dr. Thomas is very kind and patient and thorough in answering questions my mother or family had. The new facility as of Jan 2017 is amazing. I strongly recommend Dr. Thomas.

    I have been seeing Dr. Thomas for the past two and half years. He expertly treated my CML condition. Within a month my white cell counts came to a normal level and within two years no abnormal chromosomes could be detected. He is a kind and reassuring physician who always patiently answered all my concerns and puts me at ease. He has an outstanding skill drawing blood samples. My veins are very thin and presents great difficulties for most doctors and nurses, but not for Dr. Thomas.
