Very nice, very helpful. Explains treatments and options very well. Takes time to listen.

I took my dad to see Dr. Thompson for my dad’s memory loss (alzheimers), and both times, the doctor snickered at my questions, & did not seem to want to answer them. He was truly belittling and brushed me off. As we walked out at the end, he said to his staff (and loudly right in front of us to hear), "Rolling, rolling", which means keep it rolling (bring in the other patients so he can bill more patients and make more money, it seems). Is he a doctor or just in it for the money? How rude!
