He has helped me deal with my chronic pain illness, I have been going to him 7-8yrs. Once he gets to know you he will figure out what is the best way to my PAIN MANAGEMENT. If I have a problem I can make an appointment.

I have been going to the Gilead Pain Care for over 7 years. When I had my first appointment I was in unbelievable pain 24 hours a day, in every part of my body. Today because of the thoughtful, care from Dr. Thomas, I can function like a normal person. He changed my life 100%. The office staff always greets you with a smile and are very efficient in their work. It feels like family when I'm there. They're are always willing to listen to you. The P.A.s are very professional and courteous.

I have been seeing this doctor since 2004. He is a great doctor, I had back surgery in 2004 I have nerve damage in both legs sometimes the pain is unbelievable. I have been getting nerve burns and other shots to stop the pain. If you are in pain and nothing helps go see Dr. Thomas he is great.

I never write comments like this, but the care I have gotten from Dr. Thomas for several years now is so consistently outstanding that I just had to say something and hopefully help someone else needing an exceptional doctor with an unbelievable professional and office staff. Dr. Thomas has basically given me my life back. He has helped me function almost normally again, despite my severe degenerative arthritis. I recommend Dr. Thomas without hesitation and have done so even to family members.

I have been a patient of Dr. Thomas for a while now, I was referred by Dr. Kerkar who is also one of the best doctors ever!!! Dr. Thomas is a wonderful caring doctor. He has helped me for years with no meds!!!
in West Bloomfield, MI |
Dr. Thomas is very careful when it comes to narcotic prescriptions. I would say it is good to be cautious at a time when there is an epidemic of narcotic addiction. I want my doctor to be looking out for my long term well being not give me what I ask for without checking. I would recommend Dr. Thomas to anyone. He is a great doctor.

Rude and he treated like was a junkie.Now I can't walk without a walker. All he could talk about my meds and I should should left not if you are in my body Some days I try to go days without them. I don't want be to a junkie.i have lupus, fibromyalgia and insulin dependent.
Please read other comments of patients which differ from this one person's comment. Dr. Thomas is very careful with narcotic prescriptions and that is a good thing when there is an epidemic of narcotic addiction/overdose. Ultimately it is for the good of the patient. It is like getting screened at the airport so we can travel safely.

He's a great doctor who manages my pain,he was referred to me by Dr.Kerkar.I don't know what I would do without him,he has a great compassion for his patients and a good team that works with him.You can even joke with him and his laugh makes my day.I would'nt want anyone else taking care of me but him.Hope to have him for years to come.
