Patient Comments (1)
Dr. Thomas provide excellent service for my treatment needs but office manager and customer service of staff is lousy and unprofessional. I called several times regarding my bill have not gotten a call back and my bill is constantly at the same amount. If you don't have high blood pressure or heart problems you will have it after you finish dealing with them. This is sooo sad for me. I will never never use them again.
