Misdiagnosed me, and showed no interest in treating me anyway. I got a second opinion and they were shocked at her diagnosis.

I have been seeing Dr Charlotte Thompson for almost 6 years. She is incredibly knowledgeable and caring. Most Opthalmologists have no idea about my serious eye issue. Dr Thompson has treated me and kept me informed of every new treatment. I truly trust her!!!

One of the most unprofessional doctors I have ever had the displeasure of coming in contact with. She only cares about filling her wallet, not her patients. Sad that she is still practicing, or better yet has patients to practice on.
