Needs bedisde manner improvements

The wait time is ridiculous. No one is in the waiting room and you still wait for about an hour. He tends to not want to hear what the patient thinks. He talks at you not with you. Unfortunately, I would NOT recommend this office.

Think twice for this doctor

Waiting times are quite often over an hour. Received inaccurate diagnoses for the last several years. Some of the office staff can be downright rude. Other doctors in the practice seem to be very professional. Choose wisely.

some days okay

I find that the office staff can be rude at times, especially when calling you to give your test results. Some are very friendly in the office. There have been several times that the wait time was incredibly long, such as over an hour. Most of the time Dr Thomas is knowledgeable, friendly, and taking the time to check you out.
