Dr. Richard J Thomas has the following 2 specialties

  • Diagnostic Radiology

    Radiologists help doctors get a closer look at what’s happening inside your body. If your primary care doctor wants to investigate your symptoms further, they may refer you to a radiologist to get an ultrasound or x-ray. Some radiologists specialize in mammography and breast imaging, which is who you see when you need a mammogram. A Radiologist can also determine if bones are broken or fractured after any kind of accident.
    Radiologists are trained to perform MRIs and CT scans, both of which are used to determine the presence of diseases or disorders and help your doctor properly diagnose you. They can detect anything from tumors, bleeding and infections to bone and muscle disorders.

  • Radiology

    The different types of medical imaging are X-ray, computed tomography (CT) scans, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), ultrasound, and nuclear medicine.
    Radiologists are experts in these different types of tests and can advise a primary care doctor on which test is most appropriate in a specific case.

Good experience

Recently went into hospital for a biopsy of a thyroid nodule. My doctor told me essentially nothing about the procedure or what was going to happen. Was quite scared once the technologist started explaining what the process was while she did my ultrasound. Dr Thomas was a super nice young guy that went out of his way to explain the procedure in normal terms and actually even made me laugh a few times. Procedure was quick and almost painless as he said, and I got good (negative) results from the biopsy too!
