Dr. Thompson listened, was patient, explained what was going on, then summarized it, answered all my questions, discussed all my options, didn’t rush me into surgery, and didn’t rush me out of the office. He is amazing.

My son is a vascular surgeon in a very large Vascular Surgery practice in Marietta, GA. Prior to visiting Dr. Thompson, my son reviewed Dr. Thompson's credentials and compared them with others in Central Florida and recommended that I have my followup vascular study at this practice. That vascular study has been scheduled, but not yet performed, so I cannot yet discuss that work or Dr. Thompson's followup. So far, I was impressed with Dr. Thompson and his office staff.

Dr Thompson is personable & extremely professional. Excellent bedside manner. I am a 91yr old dialysis patient with small veins that complicates dialysis. Dr T always explains my conditions & problems so I can understand. He's been treating me for 6 years with numerous surgeries or procedures. When I was out of town & had an emergency he referred me to an excellent Dr where I was. Dr T took the time to call the Dr so I could get in right away to see him. He is great!!

He explained the tests results thoroughly and the options moving forward should the need arise. He and his staff are to be commended for providing outstanding professional care. Thank you for all you do.

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.
