Dr Thomas is awesome and knows his job! Really help me alot with my vision issues. Also went above and beyond with providing me documentation/medical records I needed for an insurance claim that I have been working on for months. He did not sugar coat my diagnoses, which I appreciate I wanted to know exactly what I'm facing. Looking forward to the YAG next month. Thanks Dr. Thomas

My visit with Dr Thomas was easy to make and they were quick to get me seen once I arrived for my appointment. Dr Thomas seems very knowledgeable and took his time to carefully complete the exam. I'm having a difficult time withe the charges when you pay premium prices and don't even get your prescription unless you pay an additional fee. This should be included in the exam as other Dr's do. So in short I paid out of pocket alot of money and left without a prescription. Probably won't return. Rate Dr. 9 fees 2.

I think Dr Thomas is a great physician. But. I had an appointment with him last week (during a period in which Covid-19 is spiking again in Bexar County.) and he wasn’t wearing a mask. This worries me. Normally I’d give him 5 stars — but I rated just 1 star because of no mask. Am going to look for a different practice.

The Dr is probably fine, but the wait is way too long. They have people waiting everywhere. You go from waiting in waiting room, one quick test, to waiting an another waiting room, to then waiting in exam room. I was there two hours for maybe a five minute conversation with the doctor.

De Thomas is great. Very knowledgeable good ophthalmologist and eye surgeon. However his office overbooks and waiting room is crowded. They told me I needed a driver but would not allow my husband to sit in waiting room. He has to wait in the car in 90 degree heat. I was livid. Therefore I will not be back.

I was a new patient who had experienced a somewhat scary issue with my right eye. All of the employees at the Alamo Ranch location were courteous and personable. Dr. Thomas performed a very thorough evaluation of my eyes and explained my condition in layman’s terms. He ultimately set my concerns at ease.
