    How was your appointment with Dr. Thoma?

    Mar 29, 2019
    I have been a patient of Dr. Thoma since 2013. Prior to finding him I had seen more than 100 doctors who didn’t have the time of day to help me. Dr. Thoma was the only one who took the time to do the research and proper testing to discover my diagnosis and create a treatment plan, 6 years later he is still just as determined to treating me. You will never find a more dedicated Care Team,Emily Walker is by far the most caring, knowledgeable, understanding, compassionate CRNP you will ever find
