He was great at first.I have chronic abdominal pain no drs could diagnose or help me with.He put me on pain med & I was pain free for the 1st time in my adult life. However,when I went into the hospital for major surgery(bowel resection)for reasons I will never know,he decided to drastically REDUCE my dosage When I went to his office for 1 last script,(surgery did not help my pain)he treated me like some low-life drug addict,told me not not to come back,not to call,he wouldn’t accept my calls.

Dr. Thomas is a very skilled pain management physician. His expertise in the area of cortisol injections has afforded me 7 years pain free from a chronic herniated disc condition. He’s the only doctor I would trust to manage my care. And, I travel out of state to see him. Highly recommend Dr. Vinoo Thomas.

Had a terrible experience with this doctor...he merely mocked me at my apppointment for making multiple appointments in one day and did not help me at all with my problem. There are much better doctors in this city. Go to NYU or Cornell to have a better experience. I've never had a doctor make me feel so bad. He was condescending and rude to me for no real reason.

I recently moved to Manhattan from Queens and decided to switch to a local pain management doctor. Dr. Vinoo spent all of one minute with me and basically bum rushed me out of his office after putting me through hoops to obtain a referral and Dr. Reports which he never read. I am a retired NYPD detective with numerous surgeries from line of duty injuries, years of PT, multiple shots. He told me that NO ONE will take on an opioid patient. I want to be off pain meds, that's why I came to you.
