Yesterday, I went in with knee pain. Dr Thomas gave me a cortisone shot, and today, I am virtually pain free. Dr Thomas explained everything to me and took the time to make sure I understood. And his staff was absolutely wonderful to make sure that I was comfortable. I would recommend him 100%.

Health Care service is a very hard thing to deliver. There are endless regulations, payment restrictions, liability concerns and staff shortages that make it unlike any other service we utilize. My recent experience at Dr. Thomas’s office was flawless and on par with the high end hospitality industry. Things moved quickly, professionally and everyone smiled and treated me as a person not a patient. And of course there is nobody more professional and caring than Dr. Thomas. I highly recommend!
