Decatur, GA |
I would never recommend this Dr or his practicing clinic. They have an agenda of their own that doesn't include listening to their patients. Their attitude of their care is: Take it or leave it. They do not do holistic medicine, wanting you to state that you have only one thing hurting you today, which is not even realistic when dealing with arthritic pains. Their objective with me was to decrease my pain medication at nearly each visit, requardless of my level of pain. I'm searching a new Dr.

After my examination, Dr. Thomas assured me that he would help me feel better. The medicine regime I am on has me shopping, cooking, walking and doing things I haven't felt like doing in a long time. Everyone there is nice to me and I've had nothing but positive experiences. I have fibromyalgia, chronic back pain, a hip replacement, osteoarthritis and bursitis in my hips. He and his staff are concerned about all of my issues and how to help me feel better.

Well, first off, let me just say that I have a lot more to say about this doctor than it will allow me to type here, so I will have to make it short. If I could leave zero stars, I would!!! I have NEVER had such a terrible visit in my life. Basically he refused to look at ANY of my records and told me that my problem is muscular (Not true-he would know if he would have reviewed my records). He told me that my pain is in my head and basically I'm a hypochondriac. Will never EVER see him again!!!!
