She would always forget the reason I would go or my story I shared with her. She showed little to nointerest and would just throw different medications at me like a test. I have never gone back since.

Excellent Dx that completely suited the symptoms. She explained choices that I had, and went over pros/cons of each one. Was delighted that she was able to schedule follow up appointments at times that worked for me

Dr Thomas sat behind a computer during the appointment. She used the keyboard while we were talking. Perhaps she was taking notes, but it was distracting. I also waited 35 minutes.

Dr. Thomas is a very competent and kind Dr. I was wrongly medicated for years by other Psychiatrists. She has managed to get my meds right in a short period of time. I finally feel balanced and am living my bestlife. Thank you Dr. Thomas. I am so grateful. ?

Awesome provider. She is very busy though and usually booked far out in advance for appointments. It is difficult to get your meds refilled if you can’t book an appointment.

Awful experience. She told me my appointment is at 5.30pm even if I called her twice before to confirm and my app reminded me that it was for 5pm. No eye contacts! She was typing and yawning all the time. Tooktwice phone calls while I was speaking. Once from her husband!! I couldn't understand her. She didn't speak clearly and was annoyed when I asked her to repeat. The office is old, dirty and not welcoming at all. Twice I thought about just getting up and leave during the session. When I refused to take the medication she was suggesting, she mentioned people from 3rd world are not open for medications!!! I lived my whole life in Germany. 3rd world? This was waste of my time and energy and I was super frustrated and disappointed about choosing her. I don't know why all the good reviews.

Based on my first/initial visit, Dr. Thomas is very thorough in her evaluation. Dr. Thomas asks a lot of questions, especially with your past, to get a better understanding of you as a complete person. I appreciate this because, unlike manydoctors, she takes the time to listen and understand you. Dr. Thomas seems like a very nice and caring doctor, which is something I felt by the level of care I received from my first visit. The only downsides I have is that Dr. Thomas could be a little difficult to understand at times and may be a little outdated in medication dosages for adults. Other than that, she seems pretty sharp. Time will tell!

Great doctor! Really listened to what I had to say while still asking relevant questions. She didn't push medications, but rather asked me how I wanted to proceed while still guiding me and making sure we addressed my concerns.

She was very thorough and professional. Unlike a psychologist who simply wants to listen and consider cognitive and behavioral solutions, Dr. Thomas is up front and honest from a medical perspective. I think she is an excellent addition tothe overall team assisting my child. A medical perspective is so important when cognitive-behavioral options simply not enough. Excellent.

This was my first appointment I thought she was very patient. She spoke with and my mom and I first, she listened to everything we had to say. Then asked if she needed to know anything special about my son priorthe speaking with him. She spoke with my son privately for an extended amount of time, afterwards called me back in to speak with me again and wanted to know if I had any questions. I thought she really listened to all of us my mom, son and me. My son said he thought she was very knowledgeable and listened to him.

Dr Thomas was kind and I felt comfortable with her. She answered all my concerns patiently about the medication she prescribed for my child and was not condescending. She was helpful and instead of just saying my child would need psychotherapy,she gave me recommendations. She could be more efficient and have clipboards with patient intake forms in the waiting room but was otherwise effiecient.

Dr.Thomas is the most caring & compassionate doctor/psychiatrist . The other two psychiatrists I saw before I found her , were not. I am so happy to find someone who really cares & has helped me feel better than I havein several yrs. It seemed she had no appointment after me today & took longer than scheduled visit.

I've never seen a psychiatrist so I was very skeptical at first. But once i sat down with Dr. Thomas, I felt right at home. She really listened and would stop at times for you to explain your thoughts and feelings.Fortunately, I only needed one session. But this one session has made feel better about everything. If Dr. Thomas was about the money, she would ask me to come back but she's not. She's caring, a great listener and honest. Don't think twice about making an appointment with her. She's the best! Thank you Dr. Thomas!
