First time visit for hip pain. Staff was very efficient, Dr. Thompson was attentive, explained everything clearly, and gave me an injection without excessive discomfort. I am happy I found him and this group.

I saw dr Thompson about a hip pain, and he was very helpful and upfront about what solutions work and don’t work. He didn’t try to sell me some expensive procedure

He's nice and he makes me feel comfortable. He explained my issues with both knees using the xrays to help me to better understand the pain I am experiencing. Out of the five doctors I've seen for the same problem he tops number one-two.

I was about 15 minutes early for my appointment and was told that my Dr. Was on time and should not be late getting in on time. This was not accurate at all. I was called in about 30 minutes late and others who arrived after me got in before I did. After I got in, I waited in the office another 20 minutes before the Dr. came in. I wish they would have just told me the wait was going to be longer than expected. I was starving and could have gone down stairs to grab a bite.
