Specialties

Dr. Elson M Thomas has the following 2 specialties

  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

  • Nephrology

    A nephrologist is a physician who is specially trained to diagnose and treat conditions affecting the kidneys or renal system.
    A nephrologist will determine through urine analysis, blood test, X-ray, sonogram, or kidney biopsy how well the kidneys are functioning and will then prescribe a special diet and exercise program, medication or dialysis - a process by which a machine filters the blood when the kidney is no longer capable of doing so.

The clinic staff isn't the greatest but Dr Thomas seems like a well-trained doctor. I saw him for a second opinion for renal failure after having been told by my old kidney doctor that I need to start hemodialysis 1 month ago. Dr Thomas has common sense, education and is caring. He determined that I don't need dialysis, at least not yet. It has been 3 months since I first saw him so I guess his assessment was spot on!

Takes his time with you

I had seen 4 other doctors including a trip to the emergency room for pain in my headaches. The headaches had been going on for months. Other doctors had ordered many tests and scans but I never got an answer for my headache. After my visit with Dr Thomas, he not only diagnosed me correctly, he also was able to formulate a treatment plan! I would recommend him to any of my family members!
