Well they did x-rays pretty good. Doctor can read meniscus condition from just x-rays. Recommended TKR because it was a good time since it was slow with COVID and less medical tourism. Of course his notes are totally different.

We've been there several times and the minimum wait time was 1:15 minutes. They bring in 3 patients at a time and expect you to sit and wait. Then the Doctor complains he is so busy. Strongly suggest you go somewhere else where they are respectful of your time.

Palm Harbor, FL – Aug 22, 2017
Very concerned about telling you about his hotel and his wealth, not so interested in hearing that you still have pain 6 months after rotator surgery. Doesn't seem to like to talk to patients. Billing department are masters of over billing and double billing and insurance fraud. Phone system is unlike anything I've ever experienced. I had to have a second surgery by a real doctor to clean up Thompson's mess. Probably the most incompetent doctor I've ever encountered.

David M. Bozarth in Palm Harbor, FL – Jul 07, 2016
after having knee surgery for a torn meniscus in Feb. 2016, he never ordered any physical therapy for me, even when I asked for it. My quad muscle is depleted and it's June 2016...still having pain but won't go back to him. I'm 50 and never had surgery before....he or his office didnt even call to follow up on my surgery. I was silly enough to think to send my daughter to him...he diagnosed her at first...then when pressed to do an MRI...he was found to be false and had to come up with the truth

Dr Thompson has done numerous surgeries on my knees and shoulders from various sports / work related injuries. Every time, I know if he's doing the surgery, I'll be back to doing what I normally do in no time at all!

Doesn't get any better than Dr. Thompson. A gifted, well-trained, kind surgeon and doctor. I've never had a better experience with a physician. Two shoulder reconstructions with nearly a 100% recovery and range of motion!
