I was supposed to have my knees replaced this year, but due to my health, am unable to, so I have been seeing Dr. Thom for about a month. I am receiving the best care!! He is doing everything in his power to help me. I am walking better, my pain is less, and I am able to work more. Dr. Thom is just really thorough; he also treats me according to the physical aspects of my job, and his office has already given me a referral to physical therapy. I trust and respect him.

Dr. Thom treated my chronic pain using injections. I was skeptical about this at first because my previous physicians always treated me with pain pills. I felt numbness directly following the shots and then I experienced soreness for about a week before my pain was completely gone. I felt like the doctors I had seen in the past were trying to be my friend, but none of them actually cured my pain. Dr. Thom was very straightforward and provided an effective solution to a long term problem.

My experience with "Dr." Thom is as follows: My wife, who has served our country for the past decade, was referred to this guy due to multiple problems with her neck and back. She is so flat footed that they had to do surgery on both feet. This, in turn, throws her whole skeletal system off as every X-ray and MRI confirms. After being this mans patient for almost 2 months, shes in considerably more pain that when she started, but her Pain Management Dr. could care less as long as he gets his $.
