What People Say About Dr. Andrea Thomas, MD

Waited over an hour and half to see her for my son who is on a major antipsychotic she prescribes . He is taken back by the nurse. She then comes out to the waiting room full of other patients and says she is going to talk to me in the waiting room. She proceeds to discuss items of his private mental health in front of a room of other patients waiting. Also discovered she had someone else's labs in his file. This wrong lab was used to prescribe medication. I later discovered the error.

She wrongly diagnosed me and doesn't care about the well being of her patients. She is very inconsiderate.

Dr. Andrea Thomas really makes me wonder what exactly she knows < if anything? about an adult persons feelings, life experiences or relationships. she overmedicated and misdiagnosed also shes not and adult psychiatrist. This really makes me wonder what she knows without a significant other or children. It was just plain evil what she put me through, she needs to checked to see if shes on drugs, it was like I was tortured under her care

We've been seeing Dr. Thomas for about 4 years now but that is about to end. Numerous times (more than twice) she has written prescription medication at the incorrect dose, when she had my sons file right in front of her. Thank goodness that I keep up with it. Numerous times, it has taken over a week to get my sons prescription mailed to us (controlled substance). The method of requesting medication (voicemail) is a joke and has been used as an excuse for the late arrivals or not receiving it.
