I have seen Dr. Thompson many times and each time he was very forward and pleasant about what I needed. Dr. Thompson new exactly what I needed. I had two by passes one on each leg, each time I had it done he was always very nice and took what ever time I needed to understand what I needed to do and took an honest interest in what I had to say or ask. I would recommend Dr. Thompson to any one who needed a by pass or anything else that you may need him to do. One of the best Doctors I know.
