Dr. Daniel Thompson, MD
His early interest in mechanics and technology combined with a love for working with people led Dr. Daniel Thompson into the field of orthopaedics.

Patient Comments (1)
in Arlington, VA |
After a visit to the ER at Virginia Hospital Center, I was referred to Dr. Thompson for followup. I was squeezed in the next morning. He was kind and understanding. Despite a last minute appointment he took his time and gave a more precise explanation and diagnosis than I got the day before at the ER.
