Seneca, MO |
This a very late review but if it wasn't for Dr. Thompson my son would not be here today. My water broke at 23 weeks. The doctor on call was ABSOLUTELY NOT going to do anything to stop my labor. I was "secretly" told by a nurse to ask for a second opinion from Dr. Thompson. Dr. Thompson promptly wrote orders for medication to stop my labor. I ended up in the hospital for 11 weeks until my son was born at 34 weeks. Dr. Thompson came by every week day to check on me. Thank you will never be enough

My husband and I were very satisfied with Dr. Thompson and his staff. Our wait time was also only about ten minutes.

Friendly and informative.

Doctor Thompson was absolutely amazing. He had a hand in overseeing my daughters growth and developement a few months back. While I have absolutely no complaints about Dr. Thompson himself, his receptionist was continuously rude to my partner and I all 4 times we had to come for appointments. I would highly recommend this doctor if you can tolerate feeling belittled.

Dr. Thompson saved both my life and our daughters lives. He diagnosed issues in time and saw problems on our ultrasounds that no one else could see. My husband and I will recommend his excellent diagnostic skill & genius for anyone at risk in pregnancy.
