Nothing short of amazing! Doctor Walter Thomas was great, very thorough, and answered all of my questions. He even made it clear that if my child didn’t get better to please message him or call the office because he was on call that weekend. He followed up two different days on the results of my child tests. This is comforting and amazing that he took time out to update us.

We just love Dr. Thomas...He has been both of our kids pediatrician since they were born. He is such a nice, kind person who provides great care and advice. My son will be turning 21 and we have to move on but have loved being Dr Thomas's patient!
