What People Say About Dr. Fred Thompson, MD
Reply
I went to Dr. Thompson after an unsatisfactory attempt to alleviate a torn rotator cuff with physical therapy alone with fear and resolution that the worst case scenario (surgical option) would be my fate. After consultation with Dr. Thompson, however, I was rewarded with a relatively non-intrusive course of action that was not only remarkably successful, but reflective of his commitment to the Hippocratic oath and the holistic health of his patients. I enthusiastically endorse Dr. Thompson.

A++!! He was super great with my son. Eased his mind about the healing of his fracture (which is hard to do with him and I was very appreciative that he touched on the mentality of healing). Highly recommended!
