My wife and I went to see Dr Thomas. She explained was the plan to treat her Breast cancer. She basically did not answer any of my wife's questions. She wouldnt explain Why they do what they do. She kept "mentioning "Standard of Care" as the reason for everything. This office has a system and they execute that system. If you need a Doctor who is going to look at you as a person and answer questions then go to Mary Bird Perkins or MD Anderson. They have patient advocates to help with the emotion of it all so the doctor's here dont have to. Dr Thomas is a good person and knowledgable, but I dont think has any interest in tailoring treatment to the person. Stage 2 or Stage 4, seems like that hand you the same plan. No options here. Lastly, if my wife has questions, then answer them. Afterwards the patient advocate came in and looked like she was already crying... then they sat us down to schedule sessions and waited 45 more minutes for that. Be prepared to wait.

Dr. Thomas is a great asset to the Lafayette area. We are very lucky to have a doctor of her caliber. She is very knowledgeable and extremely approachable, especially when you need to ask questions, and want them answered in a way that a normal person can understand. I highly recommend Dr. Thomas to anyone needing an oncologist.

Friendly and caring. She listened to what I had to say. Answered all my questions. The entire staff was also very nice and helpful. If you need an appointment fast, they can get you scheduled which is nice. Her NP Mareesa is also friendly and caring. Good team.

It was the worst experience I have had at a Dr since my diagnosis. If you want care that is sincere, do NOT come to Dr Thomas! She will not be concerned about your issue, only the next patient! You will thank me, find a different Dr who loves, cares and will listen.

I went to an appointment with dr Thomas and saw the NP Meressa. I was dehydrated and asked for fluids. I was denied. There was no room in the clinic or the infusion center. I asked if I could wait for a spot and I was told no. They offered to set me up with home health but I’m dehydrated now not 3days from now. I left the clinic I went to my GP. He called her and asked for a favor to him to please give me fluids. I’ll go to th ER before ever going back there. Getting my chart and moving on

Highly effective. Wonderful rapport with patients and support people. I am not always keen on doctors because some of not listen to what that you tell them. She does. I was seen by Dr. Johnson before she we need to take i think he clinic in Opelousas. But...Dr. Johnson has been just wonderful since then.
