What People Say About Dr. Joyce Thomas, MD
Reply
I was very impressed with Dr. Thomas' experience, kindness and thoroughness. She checked all my skin over, and burned off a couple of trouble spots, then noted a need further treatment on one spot. I was very happy with her service, and I noted that she was more concerned about heatlh issues than aesthetic issues.

Dr Thomas is rude and likes to give you unsolicited advice regarding your children. I took my son here and I've also seen Dr Thomas. For my son's visit we were having him seen about a rash that our pediatrician suggested need to be seen by a dermatologist. While we were in the room waiting for the doctor my son was playing on my phone. When the doctor came in the room he handed it back to me. This is when she started lecturing me on allowing him to use electronics and how I shouldn't allow
