A.E. Thomas, MD

My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

As a father of five I have developed patience and mastered multitasking. As a caregiver of a terminally ill parent I appreciate how important empathy and a comforting presence are in the make-up of a physician. As a patient, I value integrity and compassion. In my MDVIP–affiliated practice you are treated with respect, warmth and understanding. Together we will tailor a personalized health plan, focused on disease prevention, so you can enjoy a longer, healthier, richer life.

Your time is very important. In my practice I am able to see you promptly and spend as much time with you as you need to discuss all of your concerns. You’re given the one-on-one personalized attention that you deserve. My areas of focus include managing hypertension, cardiovascular disease, weight loss and preventive medicine. Additionally, I have established strong relationships with leading specialists in the community during my 23 years as an internist, which enables me to better, manage your healthcare needs. You are entrusting me with your life and I take that responsibility very seriously.
