Dr. Thomas says her mom, a nurse, inspired her to become a physician. “As a little girl, I loved hearing about her work days,” explains Dr. Thomas, who “knew from an early age that medicine fascinated me.” She says specializing in family medicine provides the opportunity to treat a variety of conditions and to offer a continuum of care to patients of all ages, from babies to grandparents. “If I was limited to one field of medicine, I would feel I’m missing out on too many aspects of my patient’s lives,” says Thomas. In school, she played first base on her softball team and running back and lineman on her college’s intramural flag football team. She enjoys musical theatre and travel in her spare time.

She is thorough, compassionate and knowledgeable.
January 24, 2017
Doesn't take appointment times seriously. Has no respect for patients time. She just takes patients when she feels like it. Not happy at all that I wasted my time waiting.

Les reconmendaria esta oficina de doctores son muy amables
October 13, 2016
Dr. Thomas is a good doctor. My family and I have been with her for years. Unfortunately, she is so overwhelmed with patients that we rarely get appointments with her, unless it's scheduled months in advance. My daughters have reluctantly transferred to other doctors. Again, Dr. Thomas is great and the transfer was in no way a reflection of her -- unable to see her on a regular basis was the cause for the transfer.
October 10, 2016
Dr. Sonya Thomas is excellent family practice physician, who spend time to ask appropriate question and answered all your questions and concerns.,

August 09, 2016
Sonya Thomas is very personable and very professional. She is a new physician in my healthcare plan and I really, really am glad that my co-worker referred me to her as she is very considerate of my time, feelings and concerns. I am very pleased with my new primary care physician.
August 02, 2016
I always tell my friends and family that I feel uncomfortable and intimidated with my doctor. I feel like she's always in a hurry and she sometimes acts rude with me. I even told them that it seems like she doesn't like her job very much.
August 01, 2016
Dr Thomas is very funny and easy to talk to she cracks me up all the time
August 01, 2016
Dr. Thomas makes me feel very comfortable. I feel like she is a friend not just my doctor.
July 26, 2016
Dr. Thomas is the best doctor we have ever had in our lives. Dr. Thomas sees my whole family, wife and daughters. I always recommend her to friends & family. Dr. Thomas really "listens" to our needs. And "speaks" to us that we may have a good understanding. Dr. Thomas is very compassionate, patient (I tend to ramble on and on about my illnesses), and wise. Her obvious experience gives us a confidence we can trust. I could go on and on. Suffice to say Dr. Thomas deserves, has earned, a BIG raise and a medal of honor for her years of Service.
July 22, 2016

Great Doctor
May 20, 2016
I waited an hour after my appointment time to be seen and even so I felt everything was rushed. Unacceptable
May 17, 2016
Dr. Thomas is very competent, but her schedule does not allow enough time with each patient. You leave feeling that you needed a more personal experience with your doctor.Sometimes you need someone to "hold your hand".
May 06, 2016
All of the people in the office are very courteous
May 06, 2016
Very concerned about her patients and is direct about her expectations for the patient to improve their help. Also, her MA, Erika is excellent. She arranged for the LVN to draw my blood. This saved me a trip to the lab. Plus, she is very through with getting the necessary information to facilitate the provider visit.
May 03, 2016
Great patients service and I would recommended Dr Sonya Thomas
April 28, 2016
Dr. Thomas cares about her patients. She tells you what you need to know without having being condescending. She cares for her patients and has a good beside manner. I trust that she will be honest with me, but not hurtful and rude. She understands me and my situation and she knows my family well since she is the primary care physician for my children and husband as well. I am very happy with the care that Dr. Sonya Thomas provides for me and my family.

April 18, 2016
She is very knowledgeable. I need to get used to her quick and let's get down to business attitude. No time to get to know you personally because I have too many patients to see. I have to learn how to deal. I think she is nice and definitely professional.
