    Promised follow up was not completed. Later learned this provider is only onsite once or twice a month. Follow up care should have been transferred to another provider

    Dr. Tomes is truly wonderful. Kind interested engaged thorough and efficient. In an incredibly short amount of time he identified what was wrong and laid out not only immediate steps but what future steps depending on the outcome of immediate steps. What might have required multiple "let's wait see and have you come back in a month" visits with another doctor was quickly clearly and compassionately explained in minutes. This gave me a much deeper understanding of my problems and a much higher degree of confidence that they were both understood and treatable. Dr. Tomes is a true treasure.

    He was probably the best primary care doctor I've seen. I felt acknowledged and I felt like he asked what I was looking for out of this visit and delivered.

    Dr. Tomes is a professional and friendly physician. He Is easy to communicate with listens well & answers my questions. Feeling a bit stressed from my high BP readings in the office I felt at ease when he mentioned about the "white coat syndrome".
