Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Thomas "Each individual patient is unique in their concerns and the needs they bring with a surgical problem.  Communication of surgery needs and its process is vital to my practice and the healthcare of my patients.   My desire is for all of my patients to be comfortable with me and my staff, to feel free to ask questions regarding their care before, during and after surgery.  My responsibility is to provide them with understandable answers to those questions.  As my patients understand the process then healing can begin.Along with communication, providing high quality care for each patient is my goal.  My years of experience and ongoing education ensure that my patients are receiving sound judgment and appropriated treatment."
