What People Say About Dr. David Thompson, MD
Reply
Uncaring,short curt attitude,arrogant,unsympathtic,callous,seems more intrested in doing as many surgeries as possible to fill his bank acct than actually helping his patient. Made promises that should not have made. Seems bothered and burdened by giving his time( that hes paid for). Regretfully a patient since 2012. Do not choose him.
