Back Surgery (John Goryance)

Unfortunately I was required to have back surgery, fortunately I was referred to Dr. Thomas. After four years of struggling with back issues, my condition deteriorated to the extent I had a difficult time walking. His office screening procedure was handled professionally, his staff is highly educated, professional and were very supportive. The pre-op procedure personnel were reassuring and efficient. Dr. Thomas was involved with all aspects of the my treatment and kept me informed. Follow-up was excellent and as of today I have NO ISSUES with my back. Dr. Thomas gave me my life back!!

Awesome!

For the past 3 years I have had no life. My back was broken in 3 places. My neck was the worst. I literally never left my house except to go to the doctor. Doctor Thomas gave me my life back. I am going out of the house and even had my hair done completely different. I feel like a new me, and wanted the outside to reflect the inside. I can never thank you enough Dr. Thomas and I will always say a special prayer for you.

Five Stars

Had to wait a little bit, but well worth it. I had a cyst pressing on my sciatic nerve at L-5. Pain was beyond a 10. Dr. Thomas performed minimally invasive surgery and now there is NO pain. Kind, understanding and an excellent surgeon.
