Best Doctor experience in forever! Easy scheduling online, fast appointments, convienient midtown office, friendly staff, virtually no wait. Dr. Thomas is personable, professional and knowledgeable. She offers all the services you need from her office, and she answers her own phone and makes house calls! I actually spent 30 minutes talking to a doctor who did not talk to me like I am dumb and I didnt need a loan to pay for it! Her fees are very reasonable. Will recommend her to anyone who needs a PC.

Not only is Dr. Thomas highly informed and helpful, but she is a great person. It’s nice to be treated by a physician that comes across as genuinely concerned for you. My mom has been seeing her for almost a year now, and I became a patient too due to how highly she spoke of her. Dr. Thomas isn’t an alarmist but she takes your concerns seriously. I’m happy to have found her!

She was incapable of listening to me relating to my severe allergy reactions to oral diabetic medications which is the reason that I refused to take them. I was told by her that I now have an inflamed liver and heart murmur that she refused to talk to me about or treat. My ADVICE IS TO STAY AWAY FROM HER! SHE WILL HURT YOU BECAUSE SHE DOESN’T LISTEN OR LOOK OVER YOUR CHART!!!

Dr. Thomas is a rare gem in today’s healthcare world. She genuinely cares about her patients, takes the time to thoroughly discuss any concerns & options for treatment if necessary, and she has gone over & above to accommodate any medical needs that I have had. I work in healthcare & have yet to meet a doctor who gives more to their patients than Dr. Thomas. I very highly recommend her to anyone who wants a doctor that genuinely cares and treats the whole patient, not just illnesses.

Dr. Thomas ALWAYS LISTENS!! I am most impressed with her critical thinking skills. She is excellent at figuring out what is wrong and explaining in terms I can understand. The BONUS is that she cares about me. Her empathy level is extremely high. I recommend her to anyone who wants an accurate diagnosis, prompt treatment, and a caring physician who listens.

I appreciate that Dr. Thomas takes the time to listen to what is happening. She asks great questions and doesn't jump to conclusions. I appreciate the fact she is not in a rush to move me along... she wants to treat me as a person. If you are looking for a doctor who cares, this is the place.

The worst doctor I have ever been to. She didn’t listen to me, ignored my medical records and refused to provide a simple medical accomodation for work. She didn’t explain anything and as a result of her wreckless medical know all, I have missed work and lost wages. Don’t waste your time with Laurie Thomas, she could care less about you. Also, she doesn’t look anything like her online photo. She is at least 30 years older than that, so that tells you something right there about how dishonest she is.

She doesn't listen, she doesn't explain, she talks down to you and attacks you. Not the person you want when you need care. She will treat you badly too! Save yourself from her issues and just select another doctor.
