What People Say About Dr. Melinda Miller-Thrasher, MD

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.

I visited Dr. Miller- Thrasher this year for the last time. They are very unprofessional. Office manager do not return calls. Dr.Thrasher charged me over $300 for a 4 min so call phone conference. I WOULDN'T recommend them to anyone. Money, money, money.... is the name of the game!

Please for you and your babies well being do not go to this practice- the staff is completely negligent. At my 3 month appt I was told my urine would be dipped in the office, this was a Friday- the doctor was also 1 full hour late and once she showed up to the office several of us were waiting so she rushed through my appointment. I left that day after being told my urine was normal. The very next day Saturday I woke up to horrible discomfort so I went to urgent care who told me I had a uti-

As others stated you wait forever in the waiting and exam rooms and then when someone finally comes, it's a rushed feeling. I was very uneasy about my IUD and bled for weeks after being told I would not bleed. I saw Dr. Thrasher and was told "it's normal", in a brushed off manner. I wouldn't tell a scared patient this, I would try to have at least some empathy. I have received bills for services I've never been billed before when seen elsewhere. The nurses are friendly and that's about it!!

All I can say is that I've never encountered such a rude and incompetent staff! I was hung up on by Tanisha and Patrice. They were ready to authorize medications that I'm not allowed to take, because they didn't read or have my files from my doctor, who is right next door to their office. The sad part is, Dr. Melinda never called me to inquire of the issues. I will not be returning to that office. I believe a staff should be the reflection of their leader. Apparently, the leader dropped the ball

Office internal communication and patient customer service are the worst I have experienced anywhere. There is not commitment to follow-up on what they have promised whether it be seeing the doctor with whom you have scheduled your appointment weeks before, respecting patient's time spent waiting to see provider, calling back or responding via portal to schedule a follow-up appointment, notifiying patient by phone of abnormal test results, calling in Rx's as promised. Would not recommend.

She misdiagnosed me throughout my pregnancy & afterwards. Had I not insisted on a mammogram I wouldve died. I was a healthy 34yr old woman & 3 mths pregnant & she told me the blood seeping through my bra & shirt from my nipple "was normal" in a pregnancy. I found the lump abt a year later & was diagnosed w/Stage 4 INFLAMMATORY Breast Cancer: chemo, radiation, dbl mastectomy, psychological & physical scarring that'll never go away. Not mention stealing my fertility & plans for more children.

Terrible. They ran a full panel of STDs on me, including obscure ones when I specifically told them not to test me for STDs because I am NOT SEXUALLY ACTIVE. The bill was almost $2000. When trying to resolve this with them, they never actually did anything. I finally got it resolved with the lab and my insurance company, without their involvement. They will suck u for every penny you have. It's utterly disgusting.

Dr. Miller-Thrasher is great, but my last few visits have made me feel rushed and not thoroughly checked out and/or listened to. My last annual was the first week of June, and I still haven't received my lab results, even after calling the office several times. I haven't received a single return call and the results are not on the on-line portal. I'm ready to find a new practice.

The office and staff are great however they are not good when it comes to reporting lab results. I had to call and ask about my lab results when I tested positive for BV and I had to ask about my prescription and when I was going to receive it. I also had switched my bc to mirena and the office was supposed to call and tell me when it had arrived. I'm assuming it never arrived to the office.
