Our daughter put herself in the hospital because she was overly medicated for anxiety and depression. Dr. Thomas was her psychiatrist. He was excellent! He listened to her and helped more than any doctor she has ever had in her life! He found the best treatment for her. We are eternally grateful!

I also feel Dr Thomas has saved my life several times in the course of my Major Depressive Disorder lows. Yes the wait time is always over an hour at his office.... a small price to pay for the benefits of his excellent care. He is also one of the very few psychiatrists in my region that performs ECT. He is a wonderfully caring & compassionate mental health doctor with a calm, quiet, soothing demeanor and the patience of Job.

Seems like a good doctor, but definitely pushes his opinions and preferences for treatment like a used car salesman rather than actually consider the patients concerns or comfort with the situation. Although this is not anything he can help, the support staff at the hospital he practices at are very unprofessional and uncaring.
