Verified Patient Reviews
I arrived 15 mins early to fill out paperwork and was taken in right on my appt time. He seemed to be knowledgeable on my symptoms and diagnosed me and wrote my prescriptions within 30 mins. He discussed what he saw and how it’s common with my symptoms. He then set me up with a follow up appt to ensure I was getting better. Pretty simple, informative visit.
Professional, fast, effective
Was able to resolve my hearing issue promptly (ear canal blocked by wax).
he was a kind and nice man. he probably needs to retire.
Dr. Thomas was knowledgable about my problem.
Absolutely terrible. The doctor spent the shortest amount of time possible with me and ignored all of my questions. Furthermore, I have been in communication with the receptionist who has the RUDEST manner I have ever dealt worth. Worst doctor's office I have ever been to. Do not go.
Very professional and pleasant staff. Organized office and homey decor. Dr. Thomas is very good at what he does. He's quick to find problem and has u in and out. His work is procise. You don't feel rushed by him. He listens very well. Loved my visit!
The best Doctor ! Very professional Kind and with a faster answer to my problem with allergies help me a lot , life saver And the Recepcionist is always happy and tell you what you need to Follow with the Doctor prescription
Saw him twice in 8 days. Knows his stuff. In and out in 10 minutes.
Doctor spent less than 5 minutes and stepped out without even saying good bye. I understand age is not fun but hey if you feel like you too old for professional work - simply retire and let young do the job. My personal opinion if you look for simple opinion or prescription without procedure to be involved you can see this doc if you need deeper manipulation go see young doc whose hands do not shake. No offence but we all age! I agree with all other reviews regarding old school it was very old school!
Fast and effective. Very satisfied!
I was happy with Dr. Thomas's efficiency. He explained what he was doing to resolve my issue, how it would feel and checked in with me during the procedure to make sure I was doing okay. I will definitely return if I have any ear, nose or throat issues in the future.
Courteous, listens to your problems., shows concern about your well being.
Every 6 months or so, I deal with hearing loss caused by ear canal blockage due to excessive ear wax buildup. Dr. Thomas is always efficient, cordial and is able to use his medial equipment to resolve the problem. For people that deal with this issue, I'd definitely recommend him. The improvement in hearing is noticeable right away! -Mike
As always great My wife is happy with the visit and therefore i am happy. She was having alergy issues and hard time breathing its all good now. Thanks Doc we love you
I have a chronic ear problem and have seen many Dr.s. A usually painful procedure cleaning my ears was handled well and I left the office knowing I would return if any new symptoms occurred. Thumbs up!
Excellent!!! Most probably I'll be back.
He is a great physician and usually always available if one needs him. He office staff could not be nicer.
Good office visit. The front office is staff person is helpful. The doctor is cordial and provided effective treatment.
Very up front and to the point. I enjoyed coming here for my throat infection. I highley recommend this Doctor to anyone who needs his help. Thank you.
I appreciated that Dr. Thomas was able to diagnose my condition and offer treatment options with confidence. The front office staff was very nice and the wait was minimal. My only two less-than-perfect notes are: (1) There were no armless chairs in the waiting room, so fat patients are going to have to stand or be very uncomfortable and (2) Dr. Thomas was very knowledgeable and nice - but he didn't really make eye contact, which my partner noticed. It didn't bother me, but it may bother some people.
Very old school, but definitely knew what he was doing and did it quickly. If you need a gentle bedside manner, this is not the doctor for you. Works very quickly. Office staff is particularly friendly and helpful; definitely willing to spend the time the doctor does not. Will answer any lingering questions you may have. Also seems quite knowledgeable about insurance, medication, & online appointments (ZocDoc).
I did not care for my treatment and would not recommend this office. Sorry but I was not satisfied at all
It was great! He totally solved my problem!
This was my first time for my condition and at this office. Dr. Thomas was very easy, clear and nice. He diagnosed my problem, gave me a prescription, set a followup appointment and I was on my way in less than 30 minutes. The desk adminitrative assistant was warm, friendly and professional.
Very friendly, knowledgeable doctor. A little bit old school, but I can appreciate his down-to-business attitude over a more modern doctor who wants to upsell and perform unnecessary procedures. Would recommend.
Simple quick diagnosis.
I perforated my ear drum after an accident. He diagnosed me quit quickly which was good but he didn't explain very much to me my situation and what it involves, it seemed like he was in a hurry to let me go. His wife at the reception is the nicest, most helpful lady ever (actually she's the one that had to help me with my prescription..)
I like him.. He seemed very personable, knowledgable, and professional.. I would recommend him
Happy with everything. We felt comfortable how mr john handled our session
It is easy to get in to see him and he always sees me right away with no long wait in his waiting room.
Office is in a crowded area but they have a free parking lot. I made my appointment on ZocDoc on a Sunday night and then showed up the next morning and they were expecting me. Dr. Thomas saw me as soon as I finished the paperwork and the treatment he prescribed fixed my ear problem pretty quick.
I felt very comfortable with Dr. Thomas. I will see him again when needed
He explained what my condition was and how he was going to treat the problem (excellent). He also said I should be a lot better in two to three days and if not to call him directly. I have a return visit next week to make sure all is well and I’m sure it will be after seeing Dr. Thomas. Regards D.E.Price
I found Dr. Thomas kind and very knowledgeable. He explained all the symptoms and how he intended to treat them. Very glad I found him on the web. I also liked the idea that I could make an appointment online through ZocDoc.
He's a seemingly lovely man, but he is no longer doing any ENT surgery so he referred me elsewhere. If you have a complicated ENT history like mine, you may want to go and see another doctor.
Simply the best Md I've ever had the pleasure of being treated by.
Great Doctor complemented him on Zoc Doc d
He is the kind of doctor I love! He's older and has been around long enough to be completely at ease and explain things without condescension or big words. I wish I could find a primary physician like him. I highly recommend him. His office is convenient and there is parking. Very cool!
The whole experience was great. I had a case of swimmer's ear and the doctor cleared all the gunk out in minutes.
The dr. Was informative right to the problem. No waiting what so ever. Nice for the 1st time meeting. I like him.
Professional, courteous, straight to the examination, quick diagnosis, given prescription, out in 15 minutes. Would recommend. Just not much of a conversationalist, which is fine for most patients.
Fantastic. No long waits, answered all my questions, and was thorough in providing me a solution to my problem.
Knew right away what was wrong, meds Started working right away.
fast and very productive!!
Seemed knowledgeable and gave a course of action to follow. Will see if it is successful.
