Dr. Anastasia Thomas knows that staying independent and keeping up an active life requires good foot health, and caring for feet is her specialty. "The ability to help seniors in a caring, compassionate way is rewarding to me," says Dr. Thomas. "I will always go the extra mile to provide them with excellent care. I especially like helping them prevent problems and improve their quality of life through proper foot care. Each patient is unique. I focus on providing hands-on treatment as well as involving the patient in their care. We work together to achieve the best outcome."
Dr. Thomas specializes in all areas of podiatric medicine, including diabetic foot and wound care and basic foot and ankle treatment. She is certified in forefoot surgery and podiatric medicine with the ability to perform elective forefoot surgery and treat emergency bone and soft tissue infections.
As an undergraduate, Dr. Thomas attended Cornell University in Ithaca, NY where she earned a degree in Africana Studies and completed all prerequisites in pre-med. After graduating, she was accepted into the New York College of Podiatric Medicine in New York City where she earned her doctorate. Following her intensive coursework, Dr. Thomas completed two residencies in New York. She trained in podiatric surgery and medicine at St. Vincent's Catholic Medical Centers in Queens/Brooklyn, and in foot and ankle trauma, diabetic limb salvage, biomechanics, and podiatric surgery and medicine at New York Methodist Hospital in Brooklyn.
She is a member of the American Podiatric Medical Association and the Georgia Podiatric Medical Association, and a diplomat of the American Board of Podiatric Medicine and the American Board of Foot and Ankle Surgery. She is board certified in both podiatric medicine and surgery.
Dr. Thomas and her husband have two children and a family pet—a Doberman named Cha Cha. In her free time, she enjoys reading, bowling and watching her son play baseball and basketball.
