Dr. Thomas is a wonderful doctor who is to the point, direct and doesn't candy coat his words.
If you're there to try to screw the insurance companies or lawyers, etc. and not really someone who has true pain issues.. he will know and he won't candy coat it. He'll tell you straight out that you're full of it and won't play into it.
BUT.. if you're truly in pain and have issues to deal with he's very honest and helpful. He knows his stuff and while sometimes his bedside manner can be a big gruff he's never one to mix words to simply make you feel better. If you're tired of dealing with doctor's that won't just say it like it is.. this guy is for you.
He's a wonderful pain specialist and even has weekend office hours to accommodate you, including Sundays!
