Can't say enough good things about Dr. Thomason. He has treated many of my family members and we would recommend him most definetly. He goes above and beyond to take care of his patients and cares about the "people " who are the patients .

October 29, 2015

I didn't understand the time frame to make an appointment after test are done to be seen by him. Last doctor said we didn't need a viral load ever done again after treatment and he wants one done.

September 10, 2015

The absolute best

The best

Excellent

September 05, 2015

I received very good information about home care and an explanation was also given to my son. Dr. Thomason was very kind and gave a thorough report and explanation of home care as well. He spend adequate time with us to explain the procedure and his findings. It was a very calming and pleasant experience for me and I would high recommend this facility and this physician to others.

September 05, 2015

Everyone was very helpful & helped to make an uncomfortable situation into a positive experience.

September 05, 2015

I had an excellent experience and would highly recommend this facility to others as well as the wonderful staff with whom I had contact.

September 05, 2015

The waiting area was a very pleasant experience. Everyone was so very nice and kind and aware of my needs. They explained what the procedure would be like and were accommodating to my son who accompanied me. I was very satisfied with my surroundings and the people who attended me. The nurses were very helpful and compassionate.

August 31, 2015

So far so good

August 28, 2015

Dr. Thomason was outstanding, taking about 45 minutes to inquire about my health issues, requesting information from IHC, etc.. He couldn't have been better!

August 16, 2015

Dr Thomason was the best. I was very comfortable knowing he was performing my procedure.

August 14, 2015

I didn't see the Dr. afterwards. My coworkers picked me up. The nurses had called and my workers rushed me out quickly. The nurse gave me a printout that I read at home and the hospital checked on me the following day.

August 11, 2015

Awesome!

August 11, 2015

Fantastic overall...especially the nurse and doctor.

August 09, 2015

The Doctor, very professional and pleasant, my visits are good experiences.

July 11, 2015

Good

July 10, 2015

I always feel special every time I visit!

July 09, 2015

The physician is an excellent physician cares about patient

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

August 11, 2013

good
