Osteopath described as incoherent

January 24, 2010 

The license of Thurston County osteopathic physician Eric D. Thomas has been suspended because of complaints registered by patients, according to the state Department of Health.

Witnesses say that between Nov. 13 and Dec. 15, Thomas said he thinks satellite signals are directing him in everything he does, including treating patients. He also appeared incoherent at times in his office and seemed unable to link topics together in a logical fashion, the witnesses say.

The statement of charges and summary documents are available at www.doh.wa.gov. Click on “Provider Credential Search.” Anyone who thinks a health care provider acted unprofessionally is encouraged to report a complaint.
