Dr. Thomas' office and nursing staff are abysmal! NEVER return phone calls, impossible to ever speak to a live person, and rarely answer emails from patient portal. When brought to her attention, the good doctor shrugged her shoulders like "oh well" - hence the "fair rating on listening and decisions. Too bad, too - good doctoring when you get with her one on one. A solid and responsive staff is critical to a healthy practice - this one needs a check-up and critical care - STAT!

Dr. Thomas is very patient and knowledgeable! She has been wonderful to have to help get my lupus under control. I have never felt rushed when seeing her. She answers my questions and makes me feel like we are a team. Thank you Dr. Thomas, I hope you will continue practicing forever...in this area

As a new patient recently diagnosed with an autoimmune disease, Dr Thomas has taken the time to thoroughly answer all my questions. During a time of fear and uncertainty dealing with a life-altering disease, her and her staff have gone above and beyond to help me understand everything and plan a course of action to get my symptoms under control.

I'm personally shocked to see all these five star ratings. The staff is nasty, and Dr. Thomas doesn't seem to really care about her patients. I wouldn't recommend anyone to her practice. I tried to get an appointment and said I was having a severe issue. I was offered March 8th. Eight weeks for a severe issue is the best you can do? No, I'm not a new patient. I won't even go into the horrible care I received the last time I was in. Goodbye....obviously you don't need the business!

DR. THOMAS HAS EXCELLENT PEOPLE SKILLS AND LISTENS VERY WELL TO HER PATIENTS. THE PATIENT IS HER FIRST PRIORITY. SHE IS VERY THOROUGH IN HER EXAMINATIONS AND SINCERELY CARES ABOUT HER PATIENTS. AT NO TIME DID I FEEL RUSHED DURING OUR APPOINTMENT. SHE IS AN EXCEPTIONAL AND CARING DOCTOR. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND HER. HER STAFF WAS ALSO VERY FRIENDLY.

Dr. Thomas and Gabi, her nurse are extremely knowledgeable, personable and truly care about patients. Dr. Thomas is very thorough during examinations never rushes and is always happy to answer questions. I feel confidant with her treatment recommendations. Gabi and Dr. Thomas work well together and respect each other. Gabi is great. She always is pleasant and very confident in her job and always answers my questions. I always have a good time at appointments, and received the best care.

Dr. Thomas is extremely thorough in her examinations and treatment recommendations. She is very receptive to discussing her treatment recommendations with her patient with explanations that instill a remarkable comfort level with her patients. She addresses questions and concerns as needed and exudes a pleasant, caring demeanor in all interactions. Gabby, Dr. Thomas nurse, should also be recognized as being very knowledgeable in her care delivery with a sincere caring attitude while very busy

Dr Thomas listens and spends time with you. She doesn't hurry you out. Her staff is awesome too

I've recommended Dr. Thomas (& will continue to recommend her) to anyone that is in need of a rheumatologist. I've been under her care for many years. I have Lupus SLE & I have never had a more caring or efficient doctor. I literally trust her with my life. She's gotten my illness under control, where all other doctors have struggled. Dr. Thomas & her nurse, Gabby, are very easy to get in touch with for emergencies or even refills. A plus for me is that most bloodwork & x-rays are done in office

Have been a patient of Sarah Thomas since 2005. Would follow her anywhere for treatment. She has no problem of listening to new or on going issues. Dr. Thomas's nurse, Gabbie, is very helpful with questions that I may have. I know that I am not the only patient that they have, but they make me feel like I am important enough to warrant a call back with an answer. Thanks for being there. Chuck McKay

in Indianapolis, IN |
The reception and scheduling staff are rude and do not follow up in a timely manner. (if they follow up at all) The nursing staff are short and not considerate of your circumstance. I am thinking because they are over worked. Dr. Thomas left me when I had other questions she left the room and did not come back. I was very disappointed with the my experience and I am currently looking for another Dr.
in Carmel, IN |
Phone calls are NEVER returned timely. I always need to wait over a week to get a return call. If they are that busy hire more staff to return calls
in Carmel, IN |
Dr. Thomas is a knowledgeable and very friendly and personable doctor. However, her front office and medical assistant staff are slow to respond to the following: 1. referral request 2.new medication or refills 3. Courtesy of returning a call to provide updates or when a request/task has been completed. First visit: Waited over 1.5 hours to have additional test done
