      I really like the professionalism that Dr. Thomas show. He really cared about my pain and is taking steps to fix the problem. I had another doctor that did my total knee replacement and he has retired since the surgery. His replacement doctor did not care about my pain and stated he could not help me. Dr. Thomas' PA was so very nice. I can't wait to go back for my second visit.
      in Highlands Ranch, CO |
      Dr. Thomas is great. He pieced together my collarbone when I broke it in a couple places and removed the plates when I was ready. Even with the two surgeries, I have a decent looking mark where the incisions are. It looks great-considering. Very professional and funny. He does a great job as does his staff. I would recommend Dr. Thomas to anyone.

      Dr Thomas is the best. Staff, Could be better. Panorama definitely the worst. Unfortunately now all you ever get to see is his PA who just goes through the motions. You can't ever get hold of anybody the same day. It's like calling an attorney's office. Frustrating-no longer worth it if I can't ever get to him
      in Denver, CO |
      Dr. Thomas was very aware that I had extreme anxiety around having hip surgery, due to my past 2 experiences. He took this into account when scheduling my total hip replacement and was very patient with me.

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
