I am very pleased with the quality of care, emotionally and physically, this office provides.

Reviewed on February 1, 2019 6:00 PM

I could not ask for a better Dermatologist. He listens, I dont feel rushed, and he is always willing to help. The nurse (I do believe her name was X) was probably the nicest and most knowledgeable nurse I've ever encountered. Will definitely be recommending Dr Thomas to my friends and family for their skin care needs!

Reviewed on January 30, 2019 6:00 PM

When the appt. was made it was made for an initial skin exam. Meaning an all over body exam for skin cancer. When I meet the dr. he didn't seem to understand that I wanted an all over exam. Spend very little time with me and I do not feel I received the attention I deserved.

Dr. Thomas has been my favorite dermatologist I have had so far. I like how he provides solutions on the spot instead of other doctors that require monthly follow ups which add up to lots of co-pays and not a lot of results. Dr. Thomas even removed the wart on my foot the first time I went to his office even though that was not what the original purpose of the appointment was. It was super helpful! I have seen improvements in my acne as well which was the purpose of the last appointment. The cream that he prescribed has been working better compared to the previous medications I have tried. I look forward to going back to his office to show him the results!

Dr Thomas and his nurse were two of the best providers I have seen. Both took time to make sure I was comfortable and that they were keeping me informed. Dr Thomas explained what he was looking for and what he was seeing which is something I very much appreciate. He was also very considerate about privacy and keeping the gown in position where ever possible. Nurse X explained everything to me and went out of her way to get me a gown that would fit me better. And they were on time which is always a plus!

Dr. Thomas is always respectful to me and tries to get me in quickly if necessary. I did have an issue with the front desk staff telling me when I checked in that my appointment wasn't until 1pm when I arrived at 11:30am. I had written the 11:30 am time in my planner and it was sent by a confirmation text to my phone from uour company. I had to go back to the desk and show them my appt time in your text confirming my appointment time.

I was suffering from severe body rash due to an allergic reaction. In the past I have been seeing Dr X. I think I got lucky that she was busy and was able to see Dr Thomas instead. Dr Thomas was very kind, patient and took the time to check the rash. He also prescribed a big jar of cream instead of a cream so it would last longer. Dr Thomas got rid of my medical condition in 2 days! Thank you so much!
