Dr. Thompson always listens carefully and does a thorough examination. I have seen him for a variety of issues and he performed my ACL reconstruction, which I am happy with. He's flexible when we discuss treatment. He understands my particular needs since he's a sports guy, too. He knows how important my particular sports are to me.

acute pain in knee; Dr Thompson diagnosed it well, and recommended course of action; partial knee replacement, that is appropriate.

I’ve seen Dr. Thompson a few times over the past year or so for a couple of different issues. In each instance, he provided a thorough assessment, listened to my concerns, and provided a variety of treatment options based on my own personal goals. Dr. Thompson was very patient and took the time to answer my questions and explained things in layman’s terms, allowing for me to make informed decisions. Highly recommend!

24 reviews and they are all 5's? How often do you see that for anything? I'm not surprised and happy to make it 25. Dr Thompson did both rotator cuffs for me getting me my next career as a goat herder. Great guy and obviously a very good doctor.

Dr. Thompson is wonderful. I went to see him for a second opinion on treatment options for severe osteoarthritis. He asked questions, and actually listened to my responses. He explained test results in a way that was easy to understand. As a result, he recently performed total knee replacement surgery on me. He knows his stuff, and just as important, he has a wonderful bedside manner. I highly recommend him.

Dr. Thompson is a friendly, competent professional. He performed surgery on my knee several years ago, and I recently visited him for leg pain. He always puts me at ease and explains all treatment options in an understandable, empathetic way. I highly recommend Dr. Thompson!

Dr. Thompson is very compassionate. He tries to do everything before anything extensive is done. He tries to exhaust all options. Wonderful man to work with. I have had shoulder surgery and knee issues and gone to him for both. I would recommend him highly! Very knowledgeable! Love his sense of humor!
