Review for Dr. Thomas

The Dr is nice, but when I tried to make an appointment today, earliest available I was given is 4-24-24, that is over 1.5 months from today and I am an existing patient. Sorry, if you are that busy, you do not need me. Changed my provider and got a next day apt with a new Dr.
