Definitely not. I learned from my new ENT doctor today that the surgery Dr. Thompson performed on me just three years ago (rhinoplasty, septoplasty, balloon sinuplasty) were completely botched and will need to be repaired. It is no wonder that my sinus problems were even worse after his surgery. To say that I am disappointed is an understatement. We put so much trust in doctors. This is a shameful level of incompetency.

As an ENT 3, every OV he wanted to have an inter office CT to C my sinus cavities & then he said it was necessary to put some type a probe up my nose for an exam. I said OK bc he was the specialist, then I saw my insurance bills, it appeared to be a $ making scam- When he did my sinus surgery he said he could fix the bump on my nose.- afterwards my nose was much smaller (flat) and then collapsed. Had to go to a plastic surgeon more $$$ too much cartledge removed, the PS took ear cartledge..

Heard about Dr. Christopher Thompson from KLBJ radio, after calling around, I chose him. Had my surgery yesterday, balloon sinuplasty and correction of a deviated septum. Dr. Thompson is SUCH a cool doc! He has extremely positive beside manners, doesn't rush you through your appointment (both my consultation and before we went into surgery), and just really makes you feel comfortable. He came to check on me after the surgery, again he was comforting. Looking forward to relief!

Dr. Thompson is awesome ! I've had a deviated septum for as long as I can remember and it was getting worse the older I got. I got a septoplasty and rhinoplasty done by him and the surgery went well! My nose has never been better, I can breath better and my sinus's have cleared. I'd highly recommend Dr. Thompson.
