Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Thompson "Allergy symptoms may affect the nasal passages, eyes, skin, lungs, or digestive system. Itchy eyes, sneezing, stuffy nose, wheezing, and hives are common reactions to allergens. Sometimes, more dangerous whole-body reactions can occur which can cause severe hives, shortness of breath and throat-swelling. Whether you’re affected by seasonal or food allergies, the team of allergy care professionals at Texan Allergy & Sinus Center are ready to work with you to provide treatment options and achieve long-lasting relief."

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.
