Run!!! Only interested in money. She orders multiple, unnecessary tests, gives results a year later and is extremely disorganized. Inconsistent handling of test results! During a pelvic exam she even asked if I was interested in her giving me lipo. She is always trying to sell some type of service. Extremely long wait times...you can easily spend 3 hrs for a visit. Been a patient over 10 years...Never returning! Save yourself the drama. Read her google reviews.

During my last visit, after sharing my concerns, Dr. Thrasher in a rushed manner discussed solutions (briefly) but was passionate about sharing her business opportunities and asked if I wanted to participate. That was my very last visit. I'm writing this today because it's been years since seeing her and I still get calls from her automated service even though I've asked several times to be removed.

Dr. Miller delivered both of my children 20 years ago. I saw an article about her in the news and inspired me to write about her. Dr. Miller was fabulous to my family, personal attention, and a loving human being. Dr. Miller assisted me with a difficult pregnancy and made sure she was in the delivery room even when she was not feeling well. If this is your first baby or your last she will treat you like the most important patient in the world. I Love My Doctor!

Dr. Miller has been my GYN since 1992. I have had nothing but good experiences since seeing her. She takes a wholistic approach to my health care and always has valuable inputs for my care. As a fellow healthcare provide, she has encouraged me and taught me. She is readily available and always supportive. Her bedside manner is stellar.

I have been a patient of Dr. Miller-Thrasher since 1994. She delivered my daughter, who is now her patient, 21 years ago. At a time when I had lost faith in the medical system, she restored my faith by consistently providing top quality care for me, my sister and my daughter. A couple of years ago, a member of her staff acted inappropriately and I brought it to Dr. Thrasher's attention. She addressed the issue right away and then followed up with me to make sure I was ok and shared the steps they used to rectify the situation. She has set the bar that I measure other physicians with and I would recommend her without reservation.

I have been a patient of Dr. MMT for 15 years. She delivered both my babies. She is not only extremely knowledgeable and professional, but she also cares. She really cares. I had a few complications during my second pregnancy last year and she talked to me on weekends and late at night to walk through what to do. I went to the hospital at least 4 times for premature labor and she was there with me or was in regular communication with the hospital each time. She has seen me through irregular Pap smears, lumps, and good times too! I love her and I’m so lucky I walked into her office 15 years ago.

Dr. Melinda Thrasher has been my OB/GYN for over 12 years. My experience started off great! Recently, I have noticed a decrease in customer service and patient urgency. I was there a week ago to have mammogram. I asked the nurse assistant to check my blood pressure, as I felt alittle strange. My reading was very high. I asked her recommendation, as to what I should do. She asked if I wanted to schedule a follow up appointment. There was no sensitivity to my immediate health, as a high pressure is not good. She didn't suggest discussing with the doctor. This was a total lack of concern for my health. I also contacted the office to request a call back from Dr. Miller the day before Thanksgiving. The person answering the phone said that she couldn't guarantee that I would receive a call back, as this was the hoilday, the office was closing early and the doctors would be spending time with their family. This was very disappointing....no concern for the patients.

Dr Thrasher has been my GYN for over 3 years. I’ve seen both her and Ms Hull, the nurse practitioner. Dr Thrasher was able to diagnose what ended up being an issue related to my neurological condition, this shows the depth and stretch of her expertise. Her staff is pleasant and all of her office locations are fabulous! She’s a great doctor and truly cares for and empowers her patients.

I went here last year for a routine pap smear and sti testing. A couple weeks later I received my results, I couldn't understand a majority of it, and it looked normal. There were a lot of words I didn't quite understand but I thought if something was wrong, surely someone would call me. This year I got my pap smear somewhere else and they called me immediately saying my results were abnormal and they need to schedule me for a biopsy for cervical cancer. I compared them with last years, and they were the same. I have had an abnormal cells possibly turning into cervical cancer for 13 months and this doctor never told me. Never followed up.

I must say things have gone downhill here over the past 2 yrs. The customer service and efficiency are terrible. The average wait time per visit is 60-90 minutes. This office doesn't follow-up with patients on lab results. No one will call you, leave your results in the patient portal, or even return a phone call. This office also has lost my lab work, failed to call in prescriptions, charges for services not given, and double bills. This office is incompetent. I wouldn't advise anyone go here!

My initial appointment with Dr. Miller-Thrasher was pretty good. She was very pleasant and forthcoming with information. She sent me to have an ultrasound and based on results she implied that I may have leiomyosarcoma & advised that I would need surgery to remove tumors ASAP. Unfortunately, I did not hear from anyone (after leaving 4 msgs) for 2 weeks to schedule surgery. I lost confidence in her service & changed doctors. To alarm someone of cancer & not followup timely was unacceptable.

I was waiting to see the doctor for over 2 hoirs as a new patient. Dr. Thrasher came in the office spent 10 min with me. Seemed in a rush barely answered any questions and ready to move on to the next patient. And then made arude comment. "I'm lucky she took me as a new patient.". I deal with chronic pain due to endometriosis, and I'm sure she doesn't want anyone saying something so rude and unprofessional to her, or her loved ones.
