Dr. Mark A Thoma has the following 1 specialty
A pediatrician is a doctor who specializes in the regular care of children, as well as the diagnosis and treatment of illness in children. Young patients are often more complicated to treat because they are still growing and developing.
While pediatricians may sub-specialize in specific therapy areas like oncology, surgery, ophthalmology, and anesthesiology, in general, pediatricians provide services like vaccinations, health exams, and treatment of common ailments and injuries. In addition, pediatricians are trained to handle the complex emotional and behavioral issues faced by children, especially during puberty.
Pediatricians normally see their patients from birth until the age of 18, although some may agree to treat patients into their early 20s, if requested.

My oldest son has been seen by Dr Thoma since he was 5 y old he is now 13. My youngest son has seen Dr Thoma since birth and he is almost 4 years old. I've only had one issue arise from Dr Thoma but I must remind you doctors are human beings and make mistakes too. Do I think Dr Thoma is great at his job...Yes. Do I believe he rushes through his appointments...sometimes. Do I believe he has good bedside manner...absolutely. I have not one bad thing to say about him or his practice. I've always been able to get a last minute appointment when needed. Every time I've had to call the on-call, I've always got a call back asap, weather it was 10pm or a holiday.
In my opinion Dr. Thoma has a lot of room to improve (to say the least). For me his bedside manner is short and rushed. Several times he refused to give my children the care they needed because of the fact that we recieve Medicaid... He said some things that made me feel less than because of my insurance. I felt as though he was being bothered by my presence in his office because of how he was acting. Finally, on several occasions Dr. Thoma missed extremely important diagnoses which could've had a terrible ending if I had not been so persistent with finding answers for my child (from another doctor). In one instance I asked him a specific question several times about my newborn. He would give me the same answer each time, "Wait until after he is a year old and then I will evaluate it." My intuition told me that was not correct so I took my son to a specialist at children's hospital. Found out that if I would've waited a year my son would have needed surgery (definitely) and could have had learning delays. I was told that this condition MUST be treated before 6 MONTHS of age. It scares me that this man is a doctor. Most parents take the pediatrician's word as gospel and would be taking a big risk trusting him. Left the practice and would not recommend to anyone.
I was very disappointed with my son's last visit to Dr. Thoma. My son had a wart that I asked about removing. His previous doctor burned the warts off and we were charged my co-pay for the office visit only. Dr. Thoma offered to put a dab of a solution on the wart. He neglected to tell me that the charge would be $150 and would not be covered by my co-pay. I called the billing department and his office and Dr. Thoma refused to take off the charge. The solution did not even work and the wart is still there. I realize that the argument is that doctors do not know the ins and outs of insurance. However, I believe he had a duty to advise me of the cost. I NEVER would have consented to this treatment if I had dreamed there would be this kind of charge. In my opinion, doctors do have a duty to discuss costs with their patients. I was very disappointed with Dr. Thoma and will not return.
