Caring and straightforward

After seeing Dr Thomas I found out I have a serious eye condition that will not get better. He did a good job of explaining things to me. Even though he couldn't help me he was very caring and didn't hide things from me to make me feel better. Straightforward doctor.

Going the extra mile

I found out that I had a very serious eye problem (retinal detachment, I was referred to Dr. Thomas who was able to work me in the same day. The staff was great and very friendly. I had to have emergency surgery and was very worried but Dr. Thomas was able to put me at ease. Thankfully he was able to save my vision and everything worked out okay. I would highly recommend Dr. Thomas to anyone (and I do!).

Great Experience!

Great doctor and great staff. I was treated very well and everyone I was in contact with made me feel comfortable and that they were genuinely concerned for my well being. Not sure how it's possible to give anything less than 5 stars for this doctor!
