I trust Dr. Thomas and nurse with my health.
October 12, 2019
Dr. Melvin Thomas is the most considerate caring MD I have ever had.
October 01, 2019
Eye contact w/ patients is important, whether from the receptionist or doctor. Unless on the phone, a receptionist can at least acknowledge the patient with, "Someone will be with you shortly." I was Dr. Thomas' last patient of the day and he did look at me often. Most visits, after saying 'hello,' he rarely looks at me.

April 04, 2019
There are errors in my medication list. I went over that list w/ a nurse in Gastroenterology last month, with Dr. Thomas' nurse and again with Dr. Thomas. I find that troubling

Dr Thomas came highly recommended to me by one of his peers when I first moved to Sioux Falls. He has proved to be a caring professional physician in all my dealings with him. His staff is always friendly and helpful with appointments and other needs. I would recommend this clinic and have many times.
April 02, 2019
Dr. Thomas and nurse make a great team and are the reason I come to this clinic.
April 02, 2019
Dr Thomas is not at all personable. He does not make eye contact and doesn't speak so you can hear him. The person (nurse?) who took me to the exam room seemed to hate her job and was abrupt and rude. I would not return to this provider.
