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.

I have neglected my health care for quite some time - putting everyone's else's needs first. I was very nervous about seeing Dr. Thomas as my last visit was years ago. Dr. Thomas made me feel welcomed in her office and was very attentive to my needs. She did not reprimand me for neglecting my health, but instead, told me she was happy I am getting back on track and will guide me along the way.

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.

August 14, 2018
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
August 07, 2018
