Well, it was a wonderful visit with Dr. Thomas that I was sad to hear that. He is retiring and going to enjoy life with his family. And I was one of his first patient. When he moved here. He has been wonderful. His whole staff is been wonderful ago, his nurses just a sweetheart, and I'm going to miss them both, and I tried to talk him into not leaving, but he kind of laughed and said, well, he had some grandkids that needed him know. He has been wonderful and I hope I can find someone, you can find someone just as good for me when I need to neurosurgeon or someone like him again.

The visit was as good as can be expected

There isn't anything thatyou could have done better. I had a very good experience.

The electronic MRI results had not been downloaded prior to my arrival and did not arrive while I was still there. It was a good thing that I brought the printed test results or Dr. Thomas would not have anything to look at to provide me with a diagnosis. This electronic transfer of files needs to be done before a patient arrives.

Everyone was nice and professional. Thank you!
April 07, 2021

April 05, 2021
It was a very pleasant experience. We were in and out in no time and we got great news from the doctor. Thank you so much
March 10, 2021
Everything was great.
March 01, 2021
The doctor should have explained more. I feel I was rushed into doing the procedure without time to process it.
February 24, 2021
Nothing. Thanks to the Dr and Staff!
February 24, 2021
Can't think of anything.
February 22, 2021
I, as for myself, I didn't, I think your staff needs any, they were very respectful and everything.
February 10, 2021
Yeah, I was taken back and left in the room for what I thought was a little excessive on the amount of time. Very pleased with the outcome but I wish I would of just stayed out in the waiting area a little longer if he was busy.
February 10, 2021
No issue. Great overall experience
February 08, 2021
Be referred to a hand surgeon in Pueblo instead of Colorado Springs. I live in Walsenburg and it's an hour south of Pueblo.
January 27, 2021
Move closer to my house,just kidding,service was superb
January 20, 2021
All the staff did really well. They even wheeled me down down in the wheelchair, the doctor was very respectful, very concerned and he did what he was supposed to do and I would recommend Dr. Thomas to anybody.
January 18, 2021
Nothing. I really appreciate the way I am treated by everyone in the office.
January 18, 2021
If I had been sent the paperwork electronically, I would gladly have completed it ahead of time. Then, the PA would not have had to ask me everything and input the info but just verified. Less contact time during COVID and possibly more accurate info.
January 18, 2021
Made sure they got my xrays beforehand my visit, or at least tell me to get them.
January 13, 2021
I had an injury, and I was able to see the doctor right away.
January 11, 2021
Not a thing. I remarked to my friend that it was the best experience I've ever had there.
December 28, 2020
Very satisfied. No other comments.
December 07, 2020
During COVID, we should be able to receive, complete, and bring with them as much paperwork as possible. This would eliminate staff and patients contact
December 07, 2020
Don't treat it like "cattle call" medicine. When a patient needs questions answered don't put forth a superior attitude. Some of us are more educated than appearances imply.
December 07, 2020
Very professional from the check-in through the health check and visit with Dr. Thomas. Dr. Thomas spent a significant amount of time doing a thorough check of my hip and then discussed several different options for a treatment path. He listened to my questions and responded to all of my concerns. Did not feel rushed and when I left I had all of the information I needed to make an informed decision.
December 02, 2020
all ok
December 02, 2020
I had a very good experience with the staff, Dr. Thomas and his assistants. I Appreciate them so much!!God bless everyone with a wonderful Christmas, despite the virus!!
November 30, 2020
Everything was great. Just don't call me back and have me take this stupid survey again. Thank you.
November 18, 2020
They made me feel comfortable in discussing my condition thoroughly
November 09, 2020
I was very pleased with the fact that you let my son-in-law come in with me, so he could meet the doctor because I was a little nervous and scared. And so I've just wanted to say thank you for that. I had a very good experience. He talked with me very nice and all the staff did too. Thank you.
November 09, 2020
Dr. Thomas was a very caring doctor. He explained everything to me and gave me options. I would recommend him for orthopedic problems.
November 02, 2020
Maybe have printed info on problem and care needed. It's hard to remember everything you are told when you have pain!
November 02, 2020
They failed. The office and the doctor failed to get the approval from my insurance company to get my knees approved by the insurance. And so I wasted all of my time by going there and not getting, not being able to get any service whatsoever. I place that blame on the office staff and or the doctor.
October 28, 2020
waiting time// my appointment was 9:45 and didn't go back until 10:05// course they could have been running late due to another patient problems.
October 19, 2020
Yes, the whole experience was very professional and very courteous the whole staff was ready to be there for you for whatever you needed, but my experience was great. You had a lot of waiting time you were right in there all of the people and staff were just great and so is the physician Dr. Thomas was very pleased with everything that was accomplished at that visit. Thank you.

Serve apple pie and ice cream while in the waiting room.
October 07, 2020
There wasn't anything that you could have done any better. It was all good.
October 05, 2020
I wasn't relieved about what happened.
September 30, 2020
Well I think everyone entering the building should be stopped at the front door for a temperature check. A couple was told no one could go in the office she had to wait she should of got a temperature check she is in the building ... My main concern thank you
September 28, 2020
This first visit required quite a long wait.
September 28, 2020
I really liked the provider. He gave me the info in clear straight to the point. I understood all the complacatins so that i had the whole picture and was able to make a clear decision concerning my health. Doctor Thomas is a very good provider and his staff is friendly.
September 14, 2020
Very impressed with entire experience with staff and physician.
September 14, 2020
My experience was well taken care of at your facility. Thank you.
September 14, 2020
Overall Dr. Thomas and his staff did well, the only thing I did not like was that he gave my corduroy a quarter Zone injection. There is not an assistant in the room with him.
September 02, 2020
Give more info on the cortisone shot
August 26, 2020
Get rid of the referral system. It took 2.5 months to get a much needed appointment due to the long delays with the referral system. It would have been longer if I hadn't been pushy.
August 24, 2020
I think the staff and Doctors were great I had No issues..
August 24, 2020
Thorough. Was able to make informed decision with his input.
August 19, 2020
The two girls upfront,(one is Mary Ann) Are amazing in getting me & my husband Johnny checked quickly and always in a good cheerful mood. Roxanne & Alisha in the back are great too. Dr Ritter who is now retired, was my Ortho-doctor. I was thankful to get Dr Thomas. I felt the same about him as I do about Dr Ritter. Very sensitive to my issues on my knees. He was professional and gave me a quick diagnosis.
August 17, 2020
I cannot think of another item you need to improve, all went timely and smoothly!
August 05, 2020
I can't think of anything. I was quite pleased with everything about it. Dr. Thomas and his staff were all very nice.
August 05, 2020
I was real satisfied with the doctor and everybody that I went there. Everybody was very professional, very caring, very loving, and I could just feel the presence of the Lord.

There was very satisfied.Hi 100% satisfied. Couldn't do any better. Thank you.
