Horrible! She is rude, blunt, and not a good dr. period! Plz stay away and see many other drs that are prob more helpful in the area. Maybe she should do herself and others a favor and retire. If your in this field you definitely should be compassionate and helpful.

I spent months getting bloodwork, biopsies & visits. My body is covered in spots. I have my own derm but my GI wanted me to see an Elmhurst derm. Very rude, kinda chuckled when she told me what was wrong and said it’s not serious & there’s no nothing she can do. Mentioned UV lights, reminded her I have skin cancer so she took that back. Few days later & the spots are darker than ever with new ones appearing daily. But according to her, leaking blood vessels is normal & I just have to deal.

AFTER WAITING 30 MINUTES IN THE OUTER OFFICE PAST MY SCHEDULED APPOINTMENT TIME I WAS FINALLY TAKEN INTO THE EXAM ROOM WHERE MY INFO WAS TAKEN. THE NURSE SAID SHE STILL HAD A COUPLE OF PATIENTS AHEAD OF ME AND WILL BE A LITTLE WHILE. wow FINALLY MY TIME AND I THINK SHE SPENT A TOTAL OF ABOUT 5-7 MINUTES WITH ME AND GENERALLY DIDN'T SEEM ALL THAT INTERESTED IN ME AT ALL AND I WILL NOT SEE HER AGAIN AND WILL LOOK FURTHER FOR ONE THAT CARES

Brought my son in for severe acne. She was very helpful and attentive. He is on his way to clear skin. I liked her a lot.

I went to Dr. Thomas with the concern that I was loosing pigmentation in my skin (vitiligo). I have Mediterranean/olive skin so it was really starting to show around my eye and a little on my groin (the two spots it first typically begins). I was concerned with the vitiligo spreading. First off, she has no bedside manner and was very blunt. Second she offered no treatment other than hope it doesn't spread. 6 months later I went to a different doc and its EVERYWHERE. Thanks for the help.
