Dr. Thomas is a very patient and kind doctor. He has a good sense of humor and nice bedside manner. Dr. Thomas took the time to answer all my questions and concerns. His staff is very friendly and the atmosphere is calm.

After waiting for the gentleman over one and half hours to appear to me personally, I am not sure I have had a legitimate exam of my eyes. This space is too small to tell what happened in my experience because when I wrote it out in detail, I was not abled to continue. However, the reason I am looking up Dr. Thomas, I question the medical exam of my eyes that I had today and wonder if I can believe the results given me. He spent about 10 min with me totally.

2 hours behind is ridiculous! Then he kept leaving the room to see other patients during my visit. He leaves the door open while discussing your PRIVATE health information for everyone sitting in the hallway to hear!! Horrible!!

He did my cataract surgery several years ago and he was very nice, professional and I still see great. I see him yearly for eye check ups and he always answers my questions and give me a complete eye exam.mi am also diabetic so that's important to me.
