Please don't. She was very snotty and arrogant. She did not help me at all and belittled me. I got out of there as fast as I could.

Dr. Thomas has been my rheumatologist for many years. Her thorough caring manner in treating my rheumatoid arthritis is unsurpassed. She is highly knowledgeable in the latest treatments for the disease and I am sure this is the reason my RA is so controlled. Thank you, Dr. Thomas!

Dr. Thomas was professional, knowledgeable, and relate-able. She listened and responded in a manner that was easy to understand. I'm not crazy about the diagnosis, but I already feel she'll work with and fight for her patient's health! I'm glad to have her on this journey.

I'm writing this review for all those out there that were refused an appointment by Dr. Thomas. See I didn't immediately test positive for RA through the tests my primary ran. I was referred to Dr. Thomas and waited 2 weeks without a phone call from them. My primary told me she would not see me because I had fibromyalgia not RA. Wow! A diagnoses with out seeing me impressive. long story short, My wonderful Rheumatologist Dr. Christopher Wu diagnosed me with moderate RA. Don't go to her.

Before I came to Dr. Thomas I saw one of the top Rheumatologist in Indiana that did nothing for my condition and kept prescribing medicine after medicine without finding the root cause for my symptoms. I have been seeing Dr. Thomas for approximately three years now and my pain has been GREATLY reduced and my RA went from severe to low disease activity. She has been instrumental in turning my life around for the better. I am able to continue working a full time job and moderate exercise.

She would not refill my prescriptions. She prescribed me the most expensive medicine available. That's not looking out for her patients

As a forewarning, this physician does not treat fibromyalgia. I found her attentive and not rude at all, which was stated in previous reviews, although she is direct. I did not know she did not treat fibromyalgia until I called for my blood work results three weeks post visit, as the office forgot to call me . I'll admit to be taken aback that as a rheumatologist, this is not one of the treated conditions; perhaps I should have known. Obviously I can't speak to her care post-initial visit.

Dr. Thomas is wonderful. She is a very compassionate Dr. who listens and cares for her patients. She has helped me tremendously with my RA on what to expect and a treatment plan. I have had great relief of the extreme pain and discomfort.

Do NOT go to Dr Thomas. She didn't even touch my husband to try to understand what is causing his pain and then charged over $300. Total rip off. Her medical license should be taken away for impersonating an MD.
