Big Lake, AK |
Dr. Thomas recently removed my diseased thyroid. She spent about 90 minutes with me at my pre-surgery appointment, explaining what the procedure would entail, the risks involved, what I could expect after surgery, and answered my questions. Both she and her office staff were very friendly and helpful. When I had questions or concerns, phone calls were returned quickly. Surgery went well and follow up has been thorough. Scheduling of appointments has been flexible and accommodating.

Dr. Thomas performed a cholecystectomy on me a few weeks ago. She and her staff are very professional and answered all my questions before and after surgery. She did a great job and I had very little pain after surgery. A few days ago, I called her office with a question about an hour before they opened and her answering service took down the message. A few minutes later Dr. Thomas called me back with the answer! I had a great experience with Dr. Thomas and highly recommend her!

Dr. Thomas removed my gallbladder. She is fabulous. VERY knowledgeable. She spent a good long time with me at the first appt. She gave me all kinds of info and then she did a great job of taking out the gall bladder. I had great confidence in her and I highly recommend her.
