Dr. Thomas has an amazing bedside manner that is such to put any patient at ease. Dr. Thomas explained my septum/sinus issues in a way that was clear and easy to understand. Dr. T. was exemplary throughout my surgery, pre and post procedure. Any patient is lucky to have him as their doctor for their medical care. Highly recommended by a patient who has troubles finding good doctors, especially ones that care. You are not just a number or a fee. cares about the work he does. How Refreshing!

Dr. Thomas is very compassionate, kind and thorough physician. He has helped me with chronic ear infections, hearing loss and sleep apnea. He removed my tonsils and fixed my deviated septum this summer. He made sure I all the information for pre and post recovery along with very adequate pain management. He has treated my nephew and mother for acute conditions and both are doing excellent. You know a doctor is highly respected when every surgical nurse compliments and praises him to patients!

I was referred to Dr. Thomas by a friend. I have always found his team, both front desk and clinical, to be very friendly and accommodating. Dr. Thomas has provided me with excellent care. He always takes the time to listen to me and answer all of my questions. He helped to accurately diagnose and treat my condition and I would highly recommend him to anyone!

Dr. Thomas is very thorough and explains things very well.

Excellent physician. Spent a lot of time answering questions and very compassionate.
in Chicago, IL |
After 5 minutes he suggested surgery for a nasal septum deviation and tonsil removal, without providing details on the the consequences and the risks of this surgery. I went to another doctor, with years of experience, and after a deep examination he suggested to do not take any surgery, no deviation of the septum. I solved my issue simply with nasal spray.
in Countryside, IL |
My son has been a patient of Dr. Thomas since birth. My son has had ear tube, adenoid and tonsil surgery all performed by Dr. Thomas. I can not say enough about Dr. Thomas as he has always made my son feel most important when it has come to any surgery or office visit. Dr. Thomas has a wonderful demeanor!! I would not take or trust my son to any other doctor.
I broke my nose pretty bad Dr Thomas fixed it real good.thank you so much?
