He is the best of the best, there is no better.Thank you Very much Dr. Thompkins.
in Kouts, INl |
My experience was total trust and physical and spiritual care. Dr Rhompkons is extreamely professional with the manerisims of a humble servant. He took wonderful care of me ar all times. I would never trust any other spine doctor the way I trust and love him. I praise God for a doctor like him. I have worked with him professionally so I have seen many aspects of him. Have a great experience with him.

Can't say enough good things about Dr. Thompkins. He is very conservative. He will try other methods for pain relief before suggesting surgery. He listens to you and explains things very well. Have had a cervical and lumbar fusion performed by Dr. Thompkins with great results.
Valparaiso, IN |
After 6 months seeing another doctor at University of Chicago, I was referred to Dr. Thompkins who immediately diagnosed the problem. Five months after surgery, I'm fully healed and in great shape. Dr. Thompkins listens to his patients.
La Porte, IN |
It will be three years in May for the procedure performed by Dr. Thompkins. I never had a moment of hesitation or doubt after conferring with him on my condition in proceeding with the surgery. I had visited with a few other surgeons but I did not have the comfort level that Dr. Thompkins had given me.
