As the year is coming to end I wanted to give thanks to important people in my life and I really have to give the most thanks to you Dr. Thomas. Just over a year ago my health was really poor due to my bizarre illness and after visiting many doctors I was not sure if I could ever regain my health as nobody had good solutions for me. None of the doctors could improve my health significantly no matter what they tried. Fortunately I found your practice and Dr. Shoemaker’s treatment plan. It has really given me a second chance at fully functional life again. For the first 6 months on the treatment plan my health slowly improved and when i took all the recommended steps, including removing my rootcanal tooth, I really started to feel like I was on the right track to full health. When I got on the VIP in July that was the breakthrough as I have basically been symptom free since then. From not being able to work or even barely get outside of my home for over a year to working full time is truly life changing. Actually I feel so good that I am able to run 2 small businesses at the same time and provide not for only for myself but to help people close to me. I hope this note reflects at least some portion of the gratitude I owe for you Dr. Thomas, for being able truly change my quality of life.
Within a year I’ve seen a Hematologist, Endocrinologist, Cardiologist, and a Neurologist all to tell me they have no solution, meanwhile, I still have symptoms. Dr. Natasha is the first one who I have felt is looking at the FULL picture of my health! Thank you, Dr. Natasha for doing what you do! More people need to know there is someone like you in Myrtle Beach! Five stars all the way!
I sought Dr. Thomas’ help in dealing with my symptoms of depression, mild “mental fog” and lethargy in March 2015. As a man of 67, I felt I was too young to go through the remainder of my life this way. I was initially a little skeptical (probably mostly ignorant) of what Integrative Medicine really was, but my fears were soon put to rest.
Being used to the current method of whirlwind office visits with physicians who just don’t have the time to talk to you, I was pleasantly surprised with Dr. Thomas’ approach. She took an amazingly thorough, in-depth medical history and not only listened to my concerns but she addressed every single one in short order.
Dr. Thomas initially evaluated my past medical history, symptoms, current diet and exercise habits. She also considered my emotional state. She then ordered an unusually comprehensive blood panel. Once all the information was gathered she developed an individualized plan involving dietary management, exercise and hormonal balance. Her treatments included some pharmaceuticals but mainly relied on a holistic approach. With the background in internal medicine and an impressive knowledge of nutrition she is well equipped to help her patients feel much younger and more vital.
In my own case, I haven’t felt this good in 20 years. I am more confident, my self-esteem is back and my mental outlook and energy level are dramatically improved. I’ve lost a significant amount of weight, the bulk of which was fat. All of this within 4 months; and all of this due to Dr. Natasha Thomas’ skill, dedication and passion for her chosen profession.
Dr. Thomas – I want to thank you for all you have done to get me back on track to health and the amazing way you helped me with my serious bone loss issues. No other doctor has even come close to what you do and I am so grateful I found you!
I really do feel better. I can’t thank you enough! I appreciate your time and help so much. You are a God send!…I can’t believe I feel so much better and it’s only been a week! I am surprised that I don’t really even miss the junky food. I am staying comfortably full. I have had two Diet Cokes though, but they didn’t even taste good, which really shocked me! I can’t say thank you enough.
I am feeling MUCH IMPROVED!!… I have SO much more energy. I don’t know how I was functioning prior to this change?!? I am taking all of my vitamins daily and sleeping well at night with the progesterone.
I am so blessed and grateful for Dr. Thomas. She has patiently guided me through the first part of my new life journey. My weight is down. My waist in inches is down. My energy has increased. She assured me in the beginning that learning to live healthy would be a challenge and one that would not be easy at the onset, but that I would come out on the other side feeling empowered. I have accomplished that this past month. My friends and family are starting to take note as well. Dr. Thomas, I truly feel, has been a direct answer to prayer for me and again – I am blessed and grateful for her.
Dr. Thomas is a God-send! She truly cares about my health. She spends a great deal of time at each visit, explaining what I need to do & the benefits of those actions. She has created a very personalized plan of care; I’m not just another over weight patient to her. She found medical reasons that were causing medical problems. Dr. Thomas has helped me set goals, and I am well on my way to reaching them with her help. She motivates me to be my best. I like myself again!
Dr. Thomas, I have been looking for you for more than ten years. Seemingly overnight, I went from being a relatively healthy person, eating anything I wanted and not gaining a pound, rarely sick and pretty easygoing, to just the opposite. Fatigue was bone numbing and I seemed to be sick with something all the time. I went to doctor after doctor after doctor. They all tried a different pill or told me there was nothing wrong with me. I had many test done but never felt better. Then I heard about you from a woman in a spa. She said she had found a doctor who was different. She said you didn’t jump to the usual conclusions and handled things on a more individual basis and hormone treatment was a specialty in your practice.
For the first time in a long time I felt a little spec of hope….then I met you and that spec became brighter. With each visit “hope” has turned into belief that you will make sure vitality and good health is restored. You really care about your patients and the time you spend and the thorough nature of your approach makes me feel privileged to know you. I would be heartbroken if I thought you would not be available. Please never underestimate the difference you have made in my life. It means so much, especially knowing the changes I need to make takes time and that you will be there to see me through.
