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 withthe 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?

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 hadno 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.

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 tosee 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!

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.

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.
