What People Say About Dr. Najeeb Thomas, MD

He saved my left leg and reduced my pain level to almost none. One orthopedics and 5 neurosurgeons diagnosed me with a tumor and told me I should live with it as long as possible as might be paralyzed if try to go in there. He diagnosed me with a herniated disc far lateral as radiologist kept reading it as a mass. He operated and I was 90% better in a month. I would not be walking at all if he had not done this for me. He is the best diagnostician I have ever seen.

Dr. Thomas and his staff are true professionals. His work on my back solved my many years of back issues immediately. I could not be happier with my care.

I would recommend Dr.Thomas to anyone. Dr. Thomas put me on my feet and gave me my life back. He did a spinal fusion of L4 & L5,removed a disc and replaced it with a cadaver disc. Recovery was rapid and. in 2 weeks I was walking without a walker. At 6 weeks I was driving. I can now go about my life again. Thank you Dr. Thomas. You are the best. Charlen Womack
