Dr. Thomas continues to provide excellent care to my 99 year old mother. Dr. Thomas has been and continues to be a care giver of the highest quality. You have a winner with her on your staff.

June 25, 2014

I think some people will not completely understand Dr. Kelly's point of view as she treats us. This might lead them to misunderstand her motives in not being overly flexible when she prescribes medication or things like that. Dr. Kelly is careful and respects her responsibility to her patients, her employer and all the investments she in order to be the best doctor she can be.

May 06, 2014

Dr. Thomas is wonderful. She always shows genuine concern about me and is very practical in making decisions about my care. She's also really personable and enjoyable to be around.

April 19, 2014

Sometimes I think she jumps the gun on what I'm going to ask and already has an answer or solution. It ends up that I'm not able to explain what is going on before she dismisses me and moves on.

April 13, 2014

Great

April 07, 2014

I have like my dr. from the get go with all that has happened to me, she has been super.. that is why I changed my son and my husband over to her as our family doctor.

March 18, 2014

Dr. Thomas is great.

January 21, 2014

I did not feel like I had to hurry to see and talk to the Dr. She answered all my questions

January 02, 2014

I would just say maybe she dumbed things down too far ("degree to which care provider talked with you using words you could understand") to the point that I feel I need to do lots of research myself. She didn't seem to respect the fact that I tried to be engaged in my own healthcare - and when I had concerns she seemed a bit miffed and defensive. However, overall I really liked her and thought she was a nice person.

December 02, 2013

The dr seemed like she was rushing us out and keeping her comments short. Didn't seem like she cared too much about the problem with my son's head.

November 21, 2013

Thanks Kelly -- as always a great job and lots of help and ideas.

November 18, 2013

There was literally no physical assessment of my problem.

October 04, 2013

I love how Dr. Thomas takes my opinion into consideration. I never feel rushed or looked down on while asking questions or in her office!

September 25, 2013

Good

August 21, 2013

Our personal style did not seem to mesh well with the doctor. When we discussed personal choices regarding our son's health, while not outright condemning or judgmental, the doctor was far from engaging or supportive. I left feeling like I would be "pushing" against the care provider, instead of working on a team with her.

August 20, 2013

Dr. Thomas has no personality and she wasnt thourough

August 19, 2013

Dr. Thomas was patient, spoke clearly, took her time with me, talked through treatment options with me, and offered contact info for follow-up care.

August 15, 2013

She is one of the straightforward and quick responsive staff

August 08, 2013

Dr. Thomas takes time to listen and involve me in the choice about my health care.

July 15, 2013

good

July 10, 2013

My Doctor had quite the educational experience in explaining some issues to me as well as printed out some graphs for my understanding of the possible issue I may be experiencing.

June 25, 2013

Dr. Thomas helped me with all my medical paperwork for Peace Corps. She was great to work with and I couldn't say thank you enough!

May 15, 2013

a lot of concern regarding several problems and follow through

April 22, 2013

Dr. Thomas really helped me to feel better about my situation. She never seems to rush me and I really appriciate that. I have already recomended her to others.

April 15, 2013

Great experience!

March 26, 2013

I am very pleased with Dr. Thomas. She took the time to listen to my problems and I did not get the sense she was rushed which is the case with most providers.

March 06, 2013

I will recomend Dr Kelly ThomaS

January 19, 2013

Fair.

December 28, 2012

Everyone was working very efficiently!

December 26, 2012

I would like to have this Doctor as my primary physician.

August 10, 2012

She was the best doctor I've had. I got emotional, and she was really nice. Answered all my questions and didn't judge me.

August 03, 2012

Dr. Kelly Thomas is easy to talk to and compassionate. I would refer her to anyone!!!

July 11, 2012

Dr. Thomas has helped me in the past with an illness I had. I was very grateful to her and the care she gave me.

July 09, 2012

I guess I was just expecting and looking for a physician who could take ALL my specialist info and make sense of it.. apply it to me...etc. Seems she doesn't have much interest in doing that (being the hub and the specialists, the spokes).

May 03, 2012

I alway have recommended her even before I actually stated seeing her. Ive alway been able to recognize a highly qualified Dr. I recognized she was a highly Qualified Dr. After all I have seen a lot of Dr's where Ive traveled so much an lived in so many places due to my type of work !!!

May 01, 2012

She came in the room did not even say hi (this has happened before). Just starts talking a million miles an hour like she is rushed to go somewhere else. Does not actually listen to the patient on what is wrong, just looks at the chart. I do not feel like she cares about me as an individual patient.

April 24, 2012

I made an appointment with Dr Thomas, as my regular doctor, was not available. I was very pleased with her care, and would recommend her to others. She was recommended to me by a friend. I REALLY LIKED HER!!!

April 14, 2012

She shrugged off my concerns and acted as though I was making up symptoms.

March 31, 2012

Really like Dr. Thomas. She has been my primary doctor for about 3 years. I've seen her frequently over the past few months for flu/bronchitis and a sore foot, and most recently the physical examination. She was very thorough in her discussion w/ me regarding the physical examination and addressing the issues w/ my sore foot. I would highly recommend her, in fact I already have. :)

March 23, 2012

Dr. Thomas took the time to make me feel cared for. She was absolutely awesome.

March 22, 2012

She is always understanding to my needs and treats me with nothing but the best advices one could ask for, She listens to all my concerns,than treats me with the highest quality of care.... She goes the distant's for all of my medical needs.

February 14, 2012

I always recommend this provider. Because of the good healthcare she provides

January 24, 2012

I love Dr. Thomas. She is a wonderful doctor.

January 07, 2012

very good
