Patient Comments (5)

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.

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...more

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!
