Dr. Connally and staff are wonderful!!! by Regina Alig*

A little over a week ago, Dr. Tom Connally performed my thyroid and parathyroid surgery. I cannot say enough about this man. My endocrinologist said that in her opinion Dr. Connally is the top surgeon in Oklahoma, and it quickly became obvious why she feels this way. In our initial visit with Dr. Connally, he thoroughly and patiently explained all the possibilities and procedures we would be dealing with. Although the waiting room was full, we felt like we were the only people in the world he had to worry about that day.

In the weeks before my surgery, his nurse Jada kept in close contact with me, guiding me though all the pre-op tests and procedures. When we hit a major snag in one of the procedures, Jada worked her behind-the-scenes magic and all was well. She was always just a phone call away, explaining, reassuring, and keeping me on track. This lady is the ultimate in patience and kindness.

The actual surgery was a breeze. Because of all the pre-op testing (which at one point I began to think was a bit of overkill, but after the surgery appreciated every single thing that had been done), Dr. Connally knew exactly what he was going for. All my reading had prepared me for headaches, sore back muscles, a sore throst, and prolonged hoarseness, but Dr. Connally is so precise that all I ended up with was a moderately sore throat for a couple of days. There was no damage whatsoever to my vocal chords (much to my family's dismay!) His surgeries may take a tad longer, but I'll take precision over speed any day.

In our follow-up visit, Dr. Connally explained in detail (and in layman's terms!) all his findings. He is absolutely the most patient and reassuring man on the face of the earth. My surgery was a total success.

I assure you, what I have written is from the heart. If all doctors and medical professionals were like Dr. Connally and his staff, what a wonderful (medical) world this would be!

I want to thank Dr. Connally for performing my parathyroid surgery in June of 2018. I had surgery in 2017 and the surgery was not successful. I was told my PH and calcium was still high, and I was still feeling bad. I searched for a professional this time and found Dr. Connally. He is a wonderful doctor, the surgery was quick and I had more energy by the next day. I continue to feel wonderful and I am enjoying being active again. Thank you to Dr. Connally, staff and Norman Regional Healthplex for the wonderful care.

I want to take this opportunity to thank Dr. Connally for his excellent work in the parathyroid surgery he performed on me May 14 at Norman Reagional HealthPlex. The surgery and recovery went exactly as he said it would, the scar is small and I am very grateful that I was referred to him. He is personable, professional and my experience with him has been a true blessing. I also want to thank Dr. Connally's staff for the excellent work they did in guiding me through this process. The office staff, RN Susan and, especially, Nurse Jada, who called me frequently, keeping me on schedule, patiently answering my numerous questions. Finally, I want to recognize size the excellent work of the folks at Norman Regional HealthPlex. They were patient, friendly and very professional in shepherding me through the entire process. Thank you, all, especially Dr. Connolly, who made all this possible.

When I needed parathyroid surgery last year, I searched for a surgeon with expertise in that area. After much research, knew that I wanted the minimally invasive surgery so I googled "endocrine surgeon oklahoma city" and Dr. Connally's name popped up. Not only that, he was the only Oklahoma physician who is a member of the American Association of Endocrine Surgeons. Was I ever thrilled & relieved! I looked at various reviews of his work (they were all good) and also saw he did the minimally invasive parathyroid surgery. I got an appointment very quickly & after meeting him & his staff, was very impressed. He had specialized surgical training in this area. What a blessing! Surgery was set up & done within about 2 weeks. He did an excellent job! The scar is very small & healed well following his instructions. He has a great personality, very kind, dedicated & compassionate. I highly recommend him & am most grateful for the great job he did. The nursing staff was equally kind & caring. Great group of medical professionals.
