Dr. Thompson was belittling and did not take my condition of cirhossis seriously. I need a transplant and he did not follow evaluation protocol in order to help me.

Dr. Thompson was able to correctly diagnose the cause of pain and nausea that I had to endure for several years before I met him. In only a few months he fixed me up. He probably could have fixed me up much faster if my work schedule at that time had allowed me to take enough time off for follow up labs and procedures.

Would not recommend: 1)He missed my first appt with him. His nurse, Donna, said he's in surgery. She suggested a procedure for me. 2)I waited more then an hour past my scheduled time for the procedure. 3) Results took almost a month. I had call back several times. Fortunately, there wasn't anything serious. 3)I called Donna 2X to get a refill. The pharmacy called 2x as well. No return call. Occurred over a month, pushing me past my 1 yr mark and thus I needed to bk another appt. for $$$
