Dr Thomas treated my mother who was a paraplegic with numerous health issues, diabetes, stroke, HBP. He is a very bright physician with compassion and I would highly recommend him.
The office is old, I was surprised on first seeing it. Then, the receptionist was a little off-putting. The doctor made up for it by being knowledgeable and professional.
Highly recommend Los Olivos and the doctors in this complex. They are professional, courteous and compassionate.
