      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.

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
