Ratings for Dr. Richard M. Thomas
I had inguinal hernia surgery 15 years ago with Dr. Thomas, have had a lot of pain ever since and am now going in to have one side redone. He also tried to charge double surgery costs when he snipped a small growth off of a vas deferns, as if I had gone in to have surgery twice. I reported and insurance company didn't let him get away with it, but I am surprised he is still allowed to operate on people. Turn around and run away...limp away if you have to, but get away!
I had a complicated abdominal hernia repaired by Dr. Thomas. I was originally scheduled with a different surgeon but he got sick and Dr. Thomas came in on his day off to do my surgery. Everything went great and he was very easy going and kind in my follow ups. Everything went great. Would go to him again if I needed more surgery.
After surgery I experienced infection and needed more surgery to rid the infection in my neck. He let me know he had to assist with another surgeon which bothered me at the time, but I agreed. I would stay clear of this Doctor --wish I had known before my surgery complications would arise.
Dr T is awesome and is very experienced, he is a bit intimidating but that is a good thing when my life is in his hands. He is an amazing surgeon and i would recommend him to everyone, He is also on the board of directors at UV hostipal. Amazing DR.
did several surgeries on me, with many complications, finally a surgical nurse told me i should find a different surgeon that dr t. has the highest infection and complication rate at the hospital and the staff didnt want me to suffer anymore. i wish they had told me before, but they are afraid of getting in trouble. since i have been asking about him i have found several people that have had life long problems caused by his "care", and he has been sued more than once and he has lost due to his incompitance. alot of very young people also. me included. by the time i found out what he had done to me, other docs covered up,too late to sue.had to go outside of utah county to docs who didnt work with him to find out what happened to me.
