The visit wit the doctor himself was less them 30 sec. He didn't really give me any information regarding my issues. All other staff was nice. Not sure if I will return. May seek another doctor/
I felt extremely at ease with the staff. I highly recommend.
It was great. He very polite great manners.
I understand that several exams had to be done. I was there for two hrs but it is ok. I really liked Marissa who treated me so nicely and was friendly. She is an excellent worker. I also liked the receptionists . I also like Dr Thomas and appreciate his care for me. Really nice and caring dr. I am very happy with everyone there. Thank you for great service.
Dr. Answered my questions & gave me the info I needed to reassure me of procedure. Very nice & professional.
He keeps me informed of what is going on with my eyes.
Dr. Thomas is one of those individuals who gets straight to the point and is purely professional. Don't expect someone who is going to ask you about your day. I, for one, don't need to spend unnecessary time with a doctor. He does provide you with the time you want to take to ask questions. So, I appreciate his approach and have no desire to change doctors.
Everything was great, front end were friendly and professional. The person who did my pervocial vision test was nice and explained to me about the test. Quick to see the Dr. Thomas. One thing that bothered me was the visit with the Dr was too quick for me. I am the type of person who needs explaining of what the Dr. found in my eyes. I appresciate the paper given me explaining the condition. I know the Dr was in a hurry and explaining to the two persons in there with him. But I am the patient. I need the Dr to take some time with me and explain to me about the condition of my eyes condition. I was told at the last visit. I have cataracts and the last time I was there, he would take care of this, yet I have to wait again. Why?
Everyone was very professional and there was some one always an individual personally taking us from site to site. We have never encountered this personal concept and we appreciated it.
He was thorough and nice. He makes me feel like he is taking care of my eyes and he listens to me when I have question or just have something to say. I would highly recommend Dr.Thomas
Staff was also Fab!

Had surgery today, went great. Nice doc.
He was very friendly and easy to talk to. Didn't mind answering questions.
He was great....very good experience overall. Easy to talk to and he answered questions. I will use Dr. Thomas again.
He seems to be a good ophthalmologist and very thorough. However, it was frustrated when he had no answer as to the source/reason for my eye pain, and told me to take ibuprofen/Tylenol (though I'd been taking them and have had no relief). I needed stronger pain medicine, and while I understand that they can be dangerous and one must not abuse them, he said he wouldn't prescribe me anything because it's too much paperwork for him. That is not a good reason to decide not to help me with the pain.
As a first time patient all employees had great customer service skills and very effient. I'm glad to be a patient of Dr. Thomas keep up the great job.
The staff at San Antonio Eye Center on 281 & Winding Way are courteous and skilled. They called me back to the exam room a few minutes before I was actually due, took measurements, then I waited about 5 minutes to see the doctor. He performed the minor surgery I needed and gave me plenty of information before, during, and after the procedure. He asked if I had any questions and responded to them informatively. I'll have a followup soon, but already know that the procedure was successful (it's 7:30 pm now and the procedure was about 3:00 pm). I like Dr. Thomas and recommended him to my husband, who was able to get an appointment within a week!
Excellent professional experience from Dr. Scott and his support staff. Will highly recommend him to my friends and family. Look forward to my next visit. Khin S.
I enjoyed Scott and he was a fun doctor that got the job done. I'd go back or recommend him anytime.
Wonderful Dr. visits,very professional
I highly recommend him to my friends and family
Explains everything well. Answers questions without any problem. Friendly and likeable.
He was good at explaining every step of my cataract surgery both before and during the procedure as well as follow-up later in the day. He was quick but thorough and made sure I didn't have any other questions. Personable, likeable, capable. I'll go back again when it's time for my other eye to need surgery.
As you walk in the office front desk very good customer service ..Dr. Thomas was patient and understanding, explaines very well... These is a place I would recommend and return too..
Dr Thomas explained everything about tests and answered all my questions. I did not feel rushed out of there.
Went very well
Dr. Thomas was wonderful! He always takes his time to explain everything that they did with explaintion that I can understand. But what I like the most is that he is never in a hurry. Thank you Dr. Thomas.
Staff was pleasant. Doctor was professional. Wait time however was too long.
He was like a friend who gave us good advice and made us understand the situation.
went in for a routine eye exam but was scheduled for a health exam. told I had to make another appt for that exam. i dont get why i had the appt already, they could not provide a reg. eye exam. never going to this place. be careful on how you schedule your appt. here. you would think with so many doctors there, one could do just an eye exam. a bunch of office idiots.
Once they started tests they were done in a timely manner
I use to see Dr Thomas many years ago I liked him then and still do. I have alot of respect for him. He knows his business. He knew exactly what my diagnosis was after being misdiagnosed by another doctor. I am very glad that he is back in town
The visit and all the staff were very helpful and kind despite being so busy. The only problem I had was trying to check in on line still had to do regular checkin. Thank you.
He's very friendly, courteous and speaks great Spanish!!
I liked him. Very courteous and professional. Also, Nicole was very pleasant and efficient. A keeper!
I was able to get in right away only called the day before and he is taking care of the issue with my surgery followup and my eye hurting and I will return in a few weeks for him to check.
I have enjoyed being a patient of Dr. Thomas and the San Antonio Eye Center Staff.
Dr. Thomas impressed me very greatly. At 84, I have seen a lot of doctors and I can honestly say, "He is one of the best I have ever met".
Very professional would recommend
The team was very professional. The doctor was great.
I was very happy to see Dr. Thomas again and to be his patient. He is very caring.
The process was easy from start to finish. The front office staff was courteous and friendly even though there was a full waiting room and a line to sign in. My appointment was at 2:30pm and I was called exactly at 2:30pm. The assistant who did all my exams was extremely nice and helpful. Dr. Thomas was thorough and professional. The entire visit was excellent. I was very surprised at how smoothly everything went. It's the first time I've ever left happy after seeing a doctor. I would recommend highly.
Answers questions, doesen't make you feel like he is rushed to see another patient.
My first visit with Dr. Thomas and I was very pleased
My visit was due to an eye infection which materialized the night before. Your scheduling staff made the extra effort to accommodate me. I also must acknowledge Dr. Thomas. He squeezed me between his schedule patients. He took time to not only evaluate my condition but to explain steps for me to take to cure my infection. In today's world where everything is hurry, hurry, Dr. Thomas is very much appreciated.
Dr Thomas answered all my questions. I was very satisfied with the appointment.
Very professional. Answered all my questions and has an open mind.
He was. Dry professional and asked my questions
Accuracy of treatment or diagnosis
DR THOMAS HAS A GOOD DR TO PATIENT MANNER AND WENT OVER ALL MY DIAGNOS'S AND TREATMENTS SO THAT MY WIFE I COULD UNTERSTAND EVERTHING. LOOK FORWARD WORKING WITH DR THOMAS ON HELPING ME ON MY EYE SIGHT.
Informative and professional .
Easy to converse with and explains well.
Dr Thomas is excellent and I would recommend him to anyone. He told me exactly how both surgeries were going to take place and that's how it has happened.
Very nice Doctor,would recommend him to anyone that needs to see an eye specialist.
I was very pleased! He took the time to explain things and that says a lot!!
Dr. Thomas was very knowledgeable & identified my problem right away. I have seen different doctorsfor years & it was a mystery to them what was causing my eye rash. Dr. Thomas diagnosed me & gave me medication to prevent future infection. It was a far drive for me to Ingram but very worth it.
I was there for a second opinion on need for cataract surgery, he answered all my questions and fully explained my situation. I decided to continue seeing Dr. Thomas on a regular basis.
Very nice people will recomend to my Family and Friends
My visit with Dr. Thomas was exceptional! The receptionists were friendly and efficient. I had a 5 min wait; Unheard of!! Dr. Thomas was professional and very informative when explaining my diagnosis. He provided excellent service with a smile. The office was clean which is great. I left completely satisfied!
Great doctor, took care of me quickly and had treatment the next day and day after, due to the of eye pressure. Very thankful for the quick response of the doctor!
He was well dressed very professional, explained what was going on with my eyes. Recommend him very highly, he was also very kind and to the point. Going back to see him in a few weeks for a follow up.Thanks Dr. Thomas Very satisfied
Very friendly and knowledgeable.
Very good and profeshinal good expirense
Willing to answer all questions of concern.
It was pleasant with one exception. My wife went to see the dr for problems on her left eye. After we saw the dr and he told us about the laser procedure this friday, he gave us a prescription to be picked up at our pharmacy. Before we left his indication was to put this drop in the left eye. When I picked up the medicine, it was written to apply to the right eye, I understand the urgency to see all patients but this is something that does not show professionalism.
Great detailed service!
Was most satisfied with this visit than previous visits with other doctor.
Dr. Thomas was great. He answered every question I had and I would recommend him to anyone that needs a ophthalmology appointment.
I found Dr. Thomas to have a suiting and calming Effect upon me? I was very worried about my eyesight and he was very professional and reassuring to me that I had nothing to worry about ? A very rare trait to be found in the medical profession of today thank you Doc.
He answered my questions about glaucoma and the tests procedures to follow in a concise and understandable manner.
