    I have been seeing Dr Thampoe for nearly 6 years and would highly recommend her and her practice. She is professional and very detailed. The staff is friendly, helpful and knowledgeable.

    Dr. Thampoe and her staff are all I could have hoped for in a medical practitioner. She has been my primary care physician for several years now and has always provided the absolute best care, and I believe, best advice and treatment for every issue. If you're looking for a doctor who has a vast knowledge in medicine, holds a genuine care for her patients and takes the time to analyze the whole person while maintaing a very efficient office, then Dr. Thampoe is someone I advise you to consider.
