What People Say About Dr. Paul Thomas, MD

I’ve been a patient of Dr. Thomas’s for more than 10 years. He listens to me by sitting down and talking to me. He didn’t hesitate to make an aggressive decision to get an MRI on my lumbar back in July of 2014 after I’d started having acute pain for the very first time ever in my back. He knew my pain was real and hasn’t ever suggested we just wait and see how it goes. The MRI revealed a 7 mm lesion on L1 L2. He didn’t suggest we wait and see... He knows what to do for me because he CARES ABOUT ME. He just did surgery on my knees to repair bilateral meniscus tears and I was waiting in my room to go into surgery but I knew I wouldn’t go back before Dr.Thomas would come in to PRAY WITH ME. He always asks God to do the work through him. That’s why I wouldn’t trust anyone else but Dr.Thomas for my doctor. He is truly a special person who happens to be my friend and my doctor, too.

I've been there many times, and always encouraged. Decisions are quick, with explanations and advice that work, as long as you follow it. On rare times when I neglected the advice, I returned, shamefaced, to get the follow up, which was simply DO IT! I did, and it was cured. If you have problems related to the bone/joint area, my advice is go there! Thry can fix it.
