About this Physician
Dr. Joseph Thomas is a skilled obstetrician and gynecologist who provides excellent prenatal care, delivers babies, and treats a wide variety of gynecological conditions.
Prevention is Dr. Thomas’ primary goal and the basis of his patient care philosophy. He provides “holistic care with an emphasis on nutritional therapy to prevent complications.” His first-hand experience with illness and health care as an asthmatic child instilled in him a profound understanding of the importance of prevention and led him to the practice of medicine in order to help others avoid health problems.
Therefore, Dr. Thomas emphasizes the value of proper nutrition to his patients. He has studied nutrition extensively and patients can be confident in his abilities to offer the “best practice” for prenatal care – keeping the optimal health of both mother and baby as the top priority.
He is proud to have “helped hundreds of women prevent complications by improving their nutrition.” In particular, Dr. Thomas recommends vitamin and mineral supplements for the health and wellness of the patient and her developing fetus. For example, “pre-eclampsia, preterm labor…, and low-birth weight babies are preventable if the right amount of vitamin D is provided to the woman preconceptionally,” and “neurotube defects are preventable with folate supplementation.”
In addition to prenatal care, Dr. Thomas is adept at treating the full spectrum of gynecological conditions, including pelvic pain caused by fibroid tumors and endometriosis. His highly-regarded surgical abilities include minimally-invasive surgical procedures to correct urinary incontinence, pelvic floor prolapse, endometriosis and ovarian cysts; laparoscopic myomectomy and hysterectomy; and utilizing FDA-approved mesh or biologic implants.
Dr. Thomas speaks both English and Spanish.
