  • Family Medicine

    A family practitioner is a doctor who specializes in caring for people of all ages, at all stages of life. Rather than focusing on the treatment of one disease or patient population, family practitioners are often the doctors that people see for their everyday ailments, like cold and flu or respiratory infections, and health screenings. When necessary, family practitioners will provide referrals for conditions that require the expertise of another specialist.
    The doctors may also provide physicals, inoculations, prenatal care, treat chronic diseases, like diabetes and asthma, and provide advice on disease prevention.

Dr. Thomas was very professional and seemed to genuinely care about your problems. He listened well and was very thorough in his exam. The staff seemed very pleasant, although the phone system needs improving.

Never can get an appointment

Im sorry, but you can never get in to see this Dr. That is why I switched primarys. I was very sick and they told me "two weeks" I said, "I wont be sick in two weeks", I was told with attitude "well then maybe you should go to urgent care" I told them, YOU are my primary, I should be able to get in to see my own doctor. After threatening to leave their practice at that point they Squeezed me in. I waited over 1.5 hrs in the waiting room and then another 45 in the room just to get an intern. After that day I switched primary's. It is rediculous.
