in Stillwater, OK |
Dr. Thomas and his staff performed surgery on me for scoliosis and spinal stenosis 8-1/2 months ago. Today I had final follow-up and the surgery was declared successful after carefully monitoring the grafts these months. I haven't had any of the pain experienced before the surgery since the day after when I was able to get out of bed.

My mother's first appointment with Dr. Thomas seems to have taken a grand total of 10 minutes, with no actual physical examination. She has had a lumbar spinal fusion surgery several years ago and did not receive any relief from it at all. Dr. Thomas WAS NOT the Dr. that performed the surgery. My Mother's second appointment, we did not even see the Dr. only his PA. The staff informed me after the appointment was over that the Dr. was never in the office on the specific day of the week.

Dr. Thomas is an excellent doctor. Takes his time to explain what will happen. Was there every day after surgery even on day of discharge. I would highly recommend him to my family and friends.
