in Lake Charles, LA |
A great ophthalmologist who greatly takes care of his patients. He spends enough time with you to talk over the condition and the treatment method, but doesn't overly waste your time either. He's very informed and knowledgeable. If you need ophthalmologic services, he is a great doctor.

Dr. Thompson performed a cornea transplant on my left eye in December of last year. My results are outstanding. I just went to a new optometrist in Baton Rouge and he was very impressed with my results. He asked me twice who had done the surgery. My entire experience with Dr. Thompson was excellent. He never rushes through an appointment and answers any question. I highly recommend him.

I had an urgent eye emergency, and I had never even been seen at this clinic. They fit me in quickly the same day and gave me the care that I needed.
