What People Say About Dr. Peter Thomas, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

Dr. Thomas is an excellent doctor. He treated me in 2017, so I knew just who to see for my current condition. Dr. Thomas takes the needed time to listen and ask questions. After a series of diagnostic exercises, he outlined additional tests which are needed to confirm his diagnosis. Depending on those results he will recommend the next steps. He is extremely knowledgeable, yet communicates in a clear manner. I am confident my condition will be cured under his care. Furthermore, everyone in the Walker Rd office was professional, efficient and friendly. Great practice!

Dr. Thomas's administrative and medical staff are very professional and friendly, just like he is. The whole office is very efficient and easy to work with. Dr. Thomas is also very knowledgeable, to the point physician that balances openness with affable "bedside" manner.

The staff was awesome and Vernell at the reception was so nice and helpful and caring. She was sympathetic to my pain and went over and above to help. Dr. Peter Thomas was wonderful and very approachable and humble. So hard to find in a Doctor these days. I had surgery and again everyone at the surgery center was nice, friendly and professional. Thank you OrthoVirginia for having such a great staff

Before your appointment with Dr. Thomas you can do the forms/ paperwork online ——it was a big help. The day of the appointment I just check in and I was ready to go. Waiting time was reasonable (about 15 mins.) Everybody was very professional an friendly. Dr. Thomas explain to me what was wrong with my wrist very clearly and also told me my treatment options.

I had a very serious arm and elbow injury, resulting in several surgeries. I feel very fortunate to have Dr. Thomas as my surgeon and wouldn’t choose anyone else to oversee my care. He is very thorough, knowledgeable, kind, caring and respectful. He ensures that you understand the procedure and recovery and answers as many questions you may have. I feel very confident that I am receiving the best care and highly recommend Dr. Thomas. Actually, I have already recommended family to him!

I can not thank Dr. Thomas enough for his expertise in my hand/wrist surgery. I recent had a tendonitis and trigger thumb release in July. Since the surgery I have had very minimum pain and discomfort. I would highly recommend Dr. Thomas to anyone who is looking to choose a surgeon for hand/wrist surgery. Needless to say, I am scheduled to have my other wrist done for the same problem. Outstanding outcome and extremely pleased! D. White
