The front desk secretary was amazing. She was very friendly and helpful. The secretaries in the back that check you out seemed to busy to acknowledge I was there. I felt brushed off.

Just a very enjoyable, professional meeting with Dr. Thomas.

The doctor compared my terminal cancer to high blood pressure. Despite my desire to be seen twice a year, he insisted on seeing me only once a year. I am a Medicare patient and suspect that has something to do with it. I will not be returning, despite really liking and respecting Dr. Thomas during my first few visits.
