What People Say About Dr. Maxwell Thomas, MD

Dr. Thomas takes the time to listen and recommend options for dealing with, in my case, swollen knee problems. When I had surgery for this, he again listened and felt comfortable enough not recommending PT because I am so active - surgery was very easy and comfortable with no pain meds. Best Ortho I've ever had!

I cannot thank him enough for the work he did on my shoulder (Replacement, left) I am not one that uses much pain killer and true to form he did such a good job on my shoulder that I only used the pain killer twice after the surgery. After that I had to take a couple of tylenol the second day after surgery.. I would highly recommend Dr. Thomas to all my friends and associates.

I had my left hip replacement with Dr. Thomas, who used the anterior approach, just about a month ago. My recovery was night & day from my right hip (done at another practice, posterior/lateral approach) a year ago. After this surgery, it was so much easier to strengthen & regain my flexibility. My "feeling back to normal" took about 3 weeks, compared to 2 1/2 months. Dr. Thomas and his team are the best!!

I am very happy I was under Dr. Thomas' care. He replaced a total right shoulder for me that was giving me many problems. His bedside manners are unmatchable. He is willing to spend time with you pre-and post-op with very clear explanations. Thank you Dr. Max and staff!

This Doctor is the one you should go with. I have gotten a ton of compliments on the scar and I have a big knee. Things went off without a hitch and I couldn't be happier. I barely needed medication for the pain afterwards. You can stop looking, NOW. .

The surgery from Dr. Thomas turned out to be a success. My recovery was fast, ditching my walker 6 days after surgery. My range of motion is great and I can feel the entire top of my leg including the incision.

Dr Thomas Takes time to listen and is caring. The staff as well works very well with questions and billing issues. His assistant Laura also takes time for her patience. I would highly recommend Dr Thomas and the facility.

Dr Thomas was good at explaining my surgery and recovery. We spoke about updating the web page with more up to date procedures for hip replacement. I never felt rushed to get out of his office. And dr Thomas always made sure we had all our questions answered.

I HAVE BEEN A PATIENT OF DR THOMAS SINCE 2015. I HAD MY RIGHT HIP REPLACED IN 2015 AND I RETURNED TO WORK AFTER 7 WEEKS ! I AM A NURSE,SO YOU CAN IMAGINE WHAT A THRILL IT WAS TO BE ABLE TO PROVIDE CARE AGAIN WITHOUT PAIN. HE USED A NEWER APPROACH,ANTERIOR TOTAL HIP FOR MY JOINT REPLACEMENT. I AM STILL DOING VERY WELL. I WILL NEED A TOTAL KNEE REPLACEMENT IN THE FUTURE AND WILL WITHOUT HESITATION HAVE DR THOMAS PERFORM MY SURGERY. HIS TEAM ARE WONDERFUL,CARING AND KIND.
