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.

from Jeffrey in AL February 28, 2018 for A.E. Thomas, MD

Dr. Thomas feels more like a friend than anything else. He listens and you know he is listening as on future visits he'll ask about something you had previously discussed.

from Michael in AL February 28, 2018 for A.E. Thomas, MD

Dr. Thomas is the real deal; compassionate, caring, listens, and offers realistic solutions. He and his staff work hard to accommodate any requests.
Dr. Thomas is an old-school (although he's still young) personal physician.

My husband and I travel a great deal. Dr. Thomas is wonderful about returning phone calls and contacting pharmacies out of state when I forget my medicine. He was my physician from the time I moved to Alabama in 2001 until now. I moved to MDVIP because of him.

from Gertrude March 28, 2017 for A.E. Thomas, MD

I have known Dr. Thomas for quite a few years and found him to be very professional and yet very caring. I like his way of being very through about my care and medicine. He is good about getting the medicine to me that is needed. I believe Dr. Thomas to be a friend also.
Thanks Dr. Thomas for being a great doctor.

from Gary March 29, 2017 for A.E. Thomas, MD

Dr. Thomas is very caring and personable. He takes the time to sit down with you and answers questions or concerns you might have. He has worked with me on occasions to get me in prior to arriving to work. I have used Dr. Thomas for a long time now and value his experience and trust. Thank you
