Dr. Thomas has a very good bedside manner. I had to have an operation on my eye and when the operation was to be done he came in I felt very confident of him and of the anesthesiologist. In the office he is very kind and listens to you and he also gives all information needed and answers all my questions. I really enjoyed Dr. ThomasAs an eye specialist. I recommend him highly!
