Why did you decide to become a membership-based medicine physician?
I believe that I can teach my patients on prevention, nutrition and healthy habits, develop healthy habits to enjoy better quality of life. This is better for the future health care than writing prescription medications and doing diagnostic studies for chronic irreversible medical problems. Changing people’s behavior to develop healthy life style is not an easy task, it involves time and effort, but insurance companies do not look at it that way.
How do you stay involved in your community?
Get in involved with volunteer work in church related activities. Assist those who are in need of help.
Dr. Thomas & her staff are very professional, yet you feel comfortable & welcome being there. Up-to-date procedures & knowledge of new technology. We are so happy to have Dr. Thomas as our physician.
Concierge Medicine Philosophy & Approach
We believe that medicine today should focus on prevention, early detection, wellness, direct patient care and spending dedicated time with patients. These are the tenets of concierge medicine. After years of private practice, physicians who transition to concierge medicine get to return to giving patients the type of care they envisioned when entering medical school. Learn More
