My consultation was during Coronavirus outbreak and was conducted on the phone (we had some trouble with Skype). This was still highly effective. Dr Thomas hugely prepared and speaks clearly in non medical and easily understood terms. When doing a phone consultation, it helps if you also have prepared your own questions in advance. In my case, the phone consultation With Dr Thomas was as effective as being in person and lasted around the same time (around 40 mins). We left with a clear plan and I would have no hesitation doing this again.

Dr Thomas has been outstanding in helping my early mother cope with chronic back pain. He has helped manage the pain over the past 3/4 years and referred her to take part in a trial for a spinal stimulator which has been a great success which has reduced her pain by over 50%. Dr Thomas goes over and above expectations and always makes the time for his patients.

Dr. Thomas is a great listener and patiently tolerated my account of two years of pain, diagnosed in Spain as Polymyalgia. I needed to learn if it was a natural, age-related development, or whether the symptoms were misleading and caused by a specific virus or bacteria. Dozens of tests (for lyme disease, paratyphoid and so on) proved inconclusive, and in the end he frankly stated that he "could go on doing tests for as long as the money lasted" (!), but he thought the tests were exhaustive enough and the returns on subsequent tests would probably not be worth the expense. I appreciated his honesty and humour, and I left London a happier person for having at least received confirmation and validation of the Spanish doctors' diagnoses.
