What Dr. Thomas's Patients Are Saying...

★★★★★

Everyone was very professional and understanding. Dr. Paul Thomas is the best and I recommend him to anyone. He showed he cared and listened to questions I had! I work in surgery so I understand from a professional standpoint, the treatment I had from the front desk to the back!

Every aspect of the experience was smart, considerate and confidence-building. Dr. Thomas and his team are the model of what a specialty practice should be — attentive, good communicators and best-in-class caregivers. Multiple friends referred me to Dr. Thomas, and I would not hesitate to do the same.

Dr. Thomas was very tentative to what my issues I was having were, and compassionate while treating my elbow. I hope I won't need to return in the future, but if I do will not hesitate to schedule another visit with he and his team.

Saw Dr. Thomas for shoulder pain, second time I’ve seen him. He truly has your best interests at heart, as he doesn’t push procedures. I have severe arthritis in both shoulders and will eventually need replacements, Dr. Thomas recommended holding off until absolutely necessary. He came as a recommendation from someone in healthcare who told me “Hands down Dr. Thomas is the best person to be seen for shoulders."

Dr. Thomas has performed two surgeries on me, as well as one surgery on my husband. He is a fabulous doctor. Wonderful bedside manner. He and Jared Vaughn and their staff are the best. I wouldn’t go anywhere else.

We have been seeing him since 2002. He greets you like family, he prays with you before surgery, he knows our family and we always share about his boys and now about his grandkids. Dr. Thomas is through in his exams, discussing our options and wants the best outcome for the patient. He truly is family to us and we to him. His team of nurses are the same.

Dr. Thomas is wonderful! Such a kind and knowledgeable man who takes time with every patient. He listens, reassures and then makes a plan to get you better and improve your quality of life. Even though I’ve never seen it, I’m convinced that he has a Superman cape on under those scrubs.
