I always feel special every time I visit!

May 02, 2015

Good experience - just need to be prepared to stay a long time.

January 17, 2015

Dr. Thomason is wonderful. He was very encouraging and informative.

January 14, 2015

I felt the doctor and I connected and communicated very well

November 18, 2014

i would tell them he is slow but appears very caring. Sometimes overly concerned about issues that are not the main reason I was there.

October 24, 2014

Dr. Thomason is the best Doctor we have had

July 20, 2014

This doctor spoke in broad generalities rather than specifics. He did share a patient's story with us that was helpful. He left before I could get to my last two questions. The MRI and lab results were not available to this doctor prior to or during my appointment, so he said he would contact me about results and follow-up care. I waited a week with no calls, but got through to the liver transplant coordinator who filled me in on results and answered my last two questions.

June 19, 2014

Actual treatment is on hold, dependent on finding spot for me in trials currently underway.

May 12, 2014

Very good

March 31, 2014

felt a little rushed because he was delayed and then his phone was going off because we were taking awhile

March 03, 2014

Dr Thomason was very, very attentive. I don't think I've ever had a doctor invest that kind of time and concern with me before.

October 02, 2013

previously written on other page. sorry. I felt very confidant in dr Thomason knowledge and experience and sincere desire to help me
