Dr Thomas is incredible! I have been seeing him for years and he has always been spot on with diagnosis, He gives you plenty of his time, asks if you have questions and explains everything in layman's terms. Can't say enough good things about him. I highly recommend him.

When speaking to Dr. Thomas, his focus on your condition. He explains everything. Asks if you have any questions and even has a sense of humor. Great Experience.
Glen Ellyn, IL |
After four painful wrist flare ups in the last five months, and many over the last two years, that required me wearing a brace for days to relieve pain, my pcp recommended I see a specialist. I hoped to gain preventative therapies, stretches, exercises and tips for how to handle flare ups. Instead he said I presented Normal since I was not having a flare up, and if I'd like to strengthen my wrists I should hire a trainer. He also stated Human existence is not a pain free existence..
