Dr. David A Thomas has the following 2 specialties
A neurologist is a physician who diagnoses and treats disorders of the nervous system which is comprised of the brain, spinal cord and nerves. These doctors do not perform surgery, but refer patients to neurological surgeons when they determine that surgical intervention is necessary.
Some of the conditions that neurologists diagnose and treat are epilepsy, aneurysms, hydrocephalus, Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis, stroke, spinal disc herniation, and spinal disease.
In addition to using diagnostic tests like MRI, CT scans, EEG and EMG, neurologists also employ neurological testing to gauge muscle strength and movement, balance, reflexes, sensation, memory, speech, and other cognitive abilities.
A psychiatrist is a doctor with specific training in the diagnosis and treatment of mental illness.
He or she can not only provide the counseling necessary to both diagnose and treat a patient, but can also prescribe medication when needed. In some cases, a psychiatrist will only provide the medication and the counseling will be provided by another healthcare specialist, like a certified counselor or psychologist.
Like other doctors, psychiatrists employ diagnostic tools like CT scans and MRI in order to observe the structure and function of a patient's brain.
Once a diagnosis is made, these specialists may use behavior or cognitive therapy in order to address the patient's condition, or a multitude of other types of therapy, in conjunction with or in place of medication.

Dr. Thomas was highly recommended to me by a Neurologist that I highly regarded, who practiced in a different subfield. He noted that I'd have to be willing to wait, but that Dr. Thomas is worth it. I couldn't agree more. I was treated very thoughtfully by everyone, and I was taken on time. I initially sat with Dr. Thomas' Nurse Practitioner, to fill in background information. When Dr. Thomas came into the room, I saw a a kind, gentle man who was interested in learning about my issues and assessing how he might be able to assist me. For the previous 8 months, I had been looking for the expertise that I had finally found. He laid out a plan with me, and told me how he thought he could help. Of course, we'd have to have some tests done, but I knew I was in the care of someone who had my best interests at heart. I have several issues that I'm dealing with, but I didn't want to deflect Dr. Thomas to issues that others were attending to. He asked, and I said I don't need to get into that, but he persisted. I Cliff Noted the story leading to my inflamed joints. He nodded his head and said, “Don’t worry too much about that, it will fade away over time.” I had seen that conclusion on-line, but the two rheumatologists I'd visited many times had no answers. Now they do.
Dr Thomas is very rude abrupt He is so removed from the first time experience of a patient having a emergency. He doesnt like to be disturbed when hes on call..His chairside manner is quite disturbing. His answer to everything is go to the Er.. When at the Er. They direct you to follow up with neuro?? Would not recommend him . he needs to be pushing paper not dealing with patients..
He kept interrupting me, reported my symptoms incorrectly to the government (resulting in me having to now fight to get my license back), constantly interrupts me when I am trying to discuss my symptoms... I came in today, a MONTH later, AFTER all the tests, and the PA asks me again when the last episode occurred for a symptom I DO NOT HAVE and kept correcting her on last time. The initial visit, the doctor didn't ask me about my symptoms at all. The second visit, he threatened to leave because I asked him to stop interrupting me. Horrible, arrogant, awful doctor. Do not visit him. Don't know about anyone else in his practice, but save yourself the headache and risk of losing your driver's license. He does not want to work WITH you. He really doesn't care about you at all.
