I was referred to Dr. Thomas by an ENT doctor after a biopsy results came back positive for cancer. He put my concerns to rest very quickly. Pre-Op, Post-Op and surgery all went very well.

Dr. Thomas returned my breathing, I had 2 surgeries in my 20's and they damage my airways. I spent 20 years breathing through my mouth and Dr. Thomas revised the surgery successfully. My airways are open, I can breath again. Very happy with results and enjoyed working with Dr, Thomas. He was concerned and took the time to hear the problems I had and offer an answer. Thank you for improving my quality of life. Mario C

Dr Thomas removed all the lymph nodes in the right side of my neck due to metastic thyroid cancer. My initial visit to him was scheduled very quickly. At that visit he detailed exactly what he planned to do. He requested an additional test that found another mass that all the prior testing had missed. At every visit he made sure that any question that I or my wife had were answered before we left the office. The surgery went well. I had very little pain and am recovering nicely. I would definitely recommend Dr. Thomas to others. He is very knowledgeable, confident and thorough. His office staff are friendly and helpful.

Dr. Thomas is very professional and personable. He takes the time to explain what needs to be done and how he will do it. His confidence puts you at ease. He removed th submandular saliva gland form my neck because it had a huge stone in it. The surgery went great! No Pain! The follow up appointments were fantastic. I would reccomend him to anyone who needs throat or neck surgery. He is the BEST!

I actually went to see Dr. Thomas because he was referred by a doctor from the medical practice my spouse works at. Due to having difficulty while breathing. Dr. Thomas was actually the second opinion I was looking for as the prior doctor did not give me a straight solution. Dr. Thomas took the time and patience to explain what was really wrong with my nose. A CT scan was recommended for a more detailed look. After the scan, besides the deviated septum, I had to reset the inferior turbinate and also get rid of a bubble inside my left nostril (cannot recall the medical terminology used by the Dr.) Post follow up visit went well and all had healed the way it was supposed to. I can give Dr. Thomas a thumbs up and 5 stars for his dedication and professionalism. Thanks to him I am able to breath again without any complications.

I felt extremely comfortable with TT aka Dr Thomas I would do it all over again in a heartbeat. He made me feel like one of his family members and guided me through the entire process. He gives you the opportunity of explaining to him what is it that you think is going on and then he explains everything else and helps fill in the blanks. I’m beyond grateful to have had such a great Doctor. He’s so humble and helped me through. Thanks for everything again Dr T.

Going through a surgery is never easy, but doctor Thomas was very good at explaining everything to me. He took his time throughout all my visits to explaine every step, telling me what to expect and how he and the team will perform my surgery. I had to remove my thyroid and he did such an amazing job that when I tell people that my scar was less than a month old they didn’t believe. My recovery went smoothly even the nurse from his office called me few times before my follow up visit!
