Dr. Paul Thomas is the greatest of doctors all around. Had my Knee Replacement and Rotator Cuff repaired by him. Don't go to any other Doctor. Has a wonderful bedside manner.

Dr. Thomas is always caring and courteous. He's funny, never inappropriate. He has performed procedures on both my wife and I and neither of us could be happier with his expertise and professionalism. He is first referral status when friends and family ask for advise.

I've never felt so cared about as a patient until having Dr. Thomas as my shoulder surgeon. He listened and didn't just dismiss my complaints of stiffness and because of that we found that I have an accelerated healing process. Thank you Dr Thomas, and I would recommend him a million times.

On first appointment was an hour behind with no notification unless you asked. Dr. scheduled MRI but after 3 cancelled appointments by doctor, I found someone else who had time to see me. Poor patient care.
