Ratings for Dr. R. Geoff Thomas
Best doctor visit I have had in a long time. Took time to explain to me in detail what a previous doctor had done (who didn't explain anything a all) and answered all my questions no matter how basic. Wait time was a bit long to see him, but with how much time he spent with me I can understand why and it is a small price to pay.
After the doctors at the Foothills hospital in Calgary almost killed me by discharging me with a massive internal infection I was taken to emergency in Red Deer. I had a ruptured bladder, broken pelvis, back injuries and like I said, massive infection. The doctors under Dr. Ian Anderson in Calgary elected to do NOTHING for surgery, did not listen to my concerns about excessive pain areas (caused by infection), thus prolonging my agony and recovery by well over a month. Dr. Thomas was a god-send. After hearing my story he got me into surgery ASAP, cleaning out all the infection - which he said was almost at the gangrene stage. This would have resulted in the amputation of some parts that are very dear to me as a member of the male gender (thanks, Calgary docs!). Dr. Thomas is one of the few doctors I have dealt with that look me in the eye and are able to have a conversation. He listened to my concerns and was the first doctor in nearly 6 weeks to act on them. He stopped by every day I was in the hospital (nearly 2 weeks in Red Deer) to check up on my progress, discuss options, joke around and try to sell me a horse (we're both horsemen). I got a kick out of that. He told me that this is the first time in 35 years of urology practice he has heard of "do nothing" as a treatment method for a ruptured bladder. 35 years of experience - 5 stars for knowledge as far as I'm concerned. If you are in western Canada and have urology issues - get in to see Dr. Thomas.
Having switched doctors, with Dr. Thomas I can now understand and have all of my questions and concerned dealt with as needed. We have to be proactive with our health and Dr. Thomas takes the time to sit and talk about whatever questions you might have. For me that is essential. Now I don't dread going in for checks and treatments or surgery. He cares and that helps a lot! It's no longer a 'because I said so' journey. We work together so every decision I can feel good about.
Just had my 1st appointment with Dr. Thomas. I found his bedside manner to be horrible, insensitive & hurried. He was extremely rude & had me in tears within 10 minutes. The cystoscopy went fine, relatively painless but he definitely is " rough around the edges"!
I wish it upon no one to have kidney stones, but if it should happen that you get kidney stones, you DEFINITELY want to see Dr. Thomas! Amazing, AMAZING man! Thank you for helping getting me fixed up and back to work again and back to life again!
