CMG Surgical Specialists - 1911 Thomson

At Centra Medical Group Surgical Specialists, our mission is to provide the community with access to quality care to improve the overall wellness and lifestyle of each of our patients. We pride ourselves on our collegial and collaborative working relationships with other surgeons and physicians in our community as well as the nursing and ancillary staff at the hospital and look forward to growing that relationship. Together, we carry on the tradition of providing the highest quality surgical care in a friendly, confidential and compassionate atmosphere. 

We are continually working to enhance our skills, gain new expertise and to stay abreast of the rapidly changing fields of general, laparoscopic, oncologic and vascular surgery. We are active participants in the quality improvement and safety initiatives at Centra.

Our practice offers a complete range of general and vascular surgical services for our patients.  Our surgeons are highly trained in the diagnosis and treatment of a variety of problems, including benign and malignant breast disease, hernia repairs, abdominal surgery (intestine, colorectal, gallbladder, appendix, etc.), endoscopy (colon and stomach endoscopy), surgery for gastroesophageal reflux, benign and malignant skin lesions, dialysis access surgery, and vascular surgery.  Many of these problems can be approached with advanced minimally invasive procedures.

We work together with patients, their families, other physicians and other health care providers to provide the care suited to your particular needs.


Patients are seen by appointment only.  If you experience an emergency during office hours, we will try to work you into our schedule.  Please call for instructions before coming to our office. All patients under 18 must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian.

Since surgery often means treating acute injuries or illnesses, there will be times when our doctors will be delayed or cannot keep the scheduled appointment time.  We strive to keep these inconveniences to a minimum and we ask your understanding.  We assure you that if the emergency were yours, we would place it ahead of other commitments.

If you schedule an appointment and later feel you don’t need our services, please contact our office as far in advance as possible to cancel.

Please bring:

  • Positive identification
  • List of all current medications and vitamins you are taking
  • Insurance cards
  • Any records or x-rays you were given by your referring doctor
  • Completed Registration forms and HPI
  • A date in mind for surgery if indicated
  • Your insurance copay, or payment for appointment if uninsured 

Medication & Prescription Refills

Please call your pharmacy for any prescription refills. The pharmacist will notify our office. 

Insurance and Payments

Our office participates in most commercial insurance plans. Please check your coverage to see if you need a referral to be seen. Many insurance companies require copayments as part of your coverage agreement. Copayments, including outstanding amounts owed, are due upon check-in. Please bring your insurance card(s) and a photo ID to each appointment so that we can confirm that we have the most up-to-date information in our records. This will also ensure your claims are filed properly.

Should you have any billing questions, please contact Customer Service.
