in Auburn, WA |
I am a brand new patient of Dr. Thomas's and I've never felt like such a "number" before, and not a patient. I know that she is a "busy doctor" and has other patients to tend to as well, but come on, she didn't even take 5 minutes to look over my medical history, and was rushing through EVERYTHING with me. My girlfriend went to my appointment with me, and she and I were both dumbfounded by how rude her office staff, nurse, and the actual Dr. were. What a horrible experience. I will NOT be back!

I really like Dr. Thomas. She has good bedside manner, seems to truly care to get you feeling better. They only thing I hate is how long it takes to get into see her. I've had illnesses that I need to be seen by her same day but never can get in until at least 2 weeks out, sometimes longer. This has been happening ever since she switched to Multicare. Get it together Multicare!
