After just having a detached retina repaired, I must say that Dr. Thompson and her "team" honestly exceeded all expectation. I can't express my gratitude.

Does not explain and does not spend time with patients. Seems competent but aloof.

Dr. Thompson saved my vision. She has been wonderful! On Christmas Eve Day, she waited over two hours for me to arrive from Ohio to examine my eye. Previously, she repaired a retina detachment along with a vitrectomy, and scleral buckle. Her staff is very well trained, courteous, and accommodating. Do not mistake her efficiency as aloofness. She has trained her staff to answer many of your basic questions, allowing her time for patients. Her credentials are impeccable.

I have never met a more professional and pleasant Dr. She is great. The office staff is easy to talk to and very professional. She will always be a part of my life, because without her I wouldn't be able to see.
