Dr. Daniel S. Thomas is without doubt an exceptional spine specialist, pain management specialist, and anesthesiologist. He has been treating my back pain for the past five and a half years. His treatments are painless and the beShow morenefits immediate and long lasting: in fact, I walk pain free within minutes of the procedure. Getting relief from the pain has considerably improved the quality of my life: if it weren't for Dr. Thomas' treatments, I would not be able to walk. I am immensely grateful for his amazing help. My office visits with Dr. Thomas are always very comprehensive. He takes the time to listen; he explains clearly and in depth all aspects of my condition, his findings, the available options, and the treatment that he recommends. He also answers all my questions in detail, with thoroughness and clarity, while displaying the utmost kindness, respect and empathy. Dr. Thomas is extremely knowledgeable, focused, professional, clearly passionate about his work and also very pleasant. He is a wonderful human being, with a profound sense of humanity. He possesses all the qualities of an ideal doctor and more. I have total confidence in Dr. Thomas and am happy to recommend him without any reservation whatsoever to anyone suffering from back pain. I would like to add that the staff members and nurses at the Athens Spine Center as well as those at the Procedural Center are helpful and professional. The staff members at the front desk of the Athens Spine Center deserve a special mention: they are always friendly, helpful and considerate: they treat patients with kindness and respect and always greet everyone with a warm, friendly smile. In addition, the Athens Spine Center provides a pleasant environment, being well kept and very clean; the waiting room is spacious and comfortable, the most welcoming I have seen in a doctor’s office
Dr.Thomas and all of his staff at Athens Spine Center are amazing!! Although the wait list to get an appointment with Dr.Thomas was long in the beginning, (I was on the wait list for approximately 3 months for my first consultatioShow moren.) I would do it again and again, because Dr. Thomas definitely knows what he is doing!! He listened to me, heard my concerns, frustrations, pains, and explained everything with such detail I left the visit confident that he knew what he was doing and he was going to help me relieve if not solve my back pain that I have been suffering from for close to 4-5 years or so now!! He broke everything he was saying down and demonstrated what he was referring to using spine models so I could understand what he was saying, what his plan of action was, and what we were going to do moving forward if the first try didn’t bring me any relief!! After my consultation I was scheduled for my procedure the following week, and when I tell you he nailed it!! My pain level has gone down from a constant 8-10 all day everyday to a 2-3 occasionally after a lot of movement or strenuous work.. he helped me so much and I will forever be thankful to him!! And will always recommend him and his ladies to any and everyone looking for relief!! If you’re contemplating on going here or somewhere else, stop wasting time and make the appointment!! I guarantee you won’t regret it!!
