As a disabled Vietnam Vet, I can say the 8 years I`ve been treated by Dr. Thomas have been far and above the 40 years of pain treatment and service of ANY V.A. hospital I`ve ever been in,,, & I`ve been in (MANY) V.A. Zoos —- Va Hosps. are fine for getting low quality meds AND if you are willing to wait 5-6 hrs. and jump through all the hoops,,, (plus 1 year waiting lists for knee replacements) – but to tell the truth,, I`am TOO WAY OLD for that crap. — Dr. Thomas is AAA # 1 in my opinion —- 5 Stars —-
