Avoid this doctor at all cost! She is unprofessional, rude, unorganized, doesn’t answer the phone, or show up to appointments! The first time I brought my son to her we waited for three hours for her! She never apologized or acknowledged mismanaging her appointments. She switched my son to a medication that made him erratic and violent and when I tried to reach her to tell her what was going on, I couldn’t get her and it took a while for her to get back to me. After I finally got in contact with her, I was told to follow up a later time to see what we would do. So I followed up with her a few months later and scheduled an appointment. She called to comfirm the appointment a week beforehand, and when my son and I arrived she wasn’t there! We waited in the hallway for an hour! I called her several times, knocked on the door, rang the bell to no avail! My son missed school for this appointment, and she didn’t have the decency to call to cancel! My advice, find someone else, she’s awful!

Very bad in returning calls. Acts like she’s about to fall asleep during therapy sessions. Gives very little feedback. Unorganized scheduling (will write one time on your appointment card, but another in her appointment book). However, she is a very nice person.

DO NOT RECOMMEND - I've been trying to get my prescription refilled for a week now. First I couldn't even leave her a message because voicemail wasn't setup. Then I left her a vmail on Monday and had to call her back and leave a voicemail on Thursday because she still had not called back. She finally calls me back Thursday night saying she will fill my prescription the next day. It's now Sunday, I've left her a few text messages, no response and no refill yet. Absolutely HORRIBLE.

If I could leave negative stars I would. In a nutshell, "Dr." Thomas saw my 8 year old son for about 8 months. During that time she never remembered his name, asked us on our third visit "who we were", wrote the wrong name down on his appointment cards... Her communication is ATROCIOUS. My son needed a refill of his prescription. She was away on vacation. I called her, left text messages on her personal cell phone and the pharmacy called her as well. She returned ZERO of these messages. HORRIBLE

She's really caring and understanding. Really takes the time to listen and makes sure the drugs side effects are something you'll be okay with. I know she had to go on a medical leave and that might be inconvenient for people but that's out of her control. Definitely recommend her.

I saw Dr. Thomas once and when I arrived at her office for a follow-up, I was met with a sign that read she won't be seeing patients for 3 mos. due to a medical emergency. I am sorry about whatever may have occurred, but there was no voicemail advising patients re: her extended absence, or recommendations for what to do if meds needed reauthorization. For some patients, such poor standard of care can have dire consequences. My health is too important and must switch drs.

Dr. Thomas is very kind and has helped with my daughter's depression. We saw a few Dr.'s before having the good fortune to meet Dr. Thomas. I recommend her highly.
