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.

Patient Reviews

October 02, 2018
Dr. Thomas has been my primary doctor for many years. She has been an excellent health provider.
October 01, 2018
very good at what she does
September 14, 2018
This provider doesn't want to deal with any problems you may have, she only likes to see easy patients and her attitude reflects it.
September 11, 2018
Dr. Thomas is a hard worker who really tries to do her best for her patients. Being forced to see 25 patients a day puts a huge stress on her and limits the time she can spend with each patient. I get the economic challenges today in health care but it should not be a negative experience for the patients.

Take time to review history about patient and ask how they are doing instead of being schooled about how appointment are only for one thing at a time and any questions or concerns need another appointment I would prefer a more personable doctor

April 03, 2018
It was my first time at the office/visit with Dr Thomas. The front desk staff was frenidy. Dr Thomas and her nurse assistant were super sweet and very kind. I appreciate how she tries to get to know her patients vs treating them like a number. Moreover, she seems to be in demand so booking an appointment might be kind of hard. That's my only concern.
April 02, 2018
PIH has always fulfilled my needs.

Dr. Thomas is my primary doctor and I often see another Dr. because it's hard to get an appt. with he, when I'm sick today, I don't want to have to wait weeks,when I''m sick now so I see who I can,which has often been the case. I want a primary gets to know me and I can get to know through the years.I know there will be times I may have to see someone else but, not more then my primary.
