Dr. Thompson is an excellent doctor. We went to him for a second opinion regarding our 5 year old son for a possible open heart surgery. After examining him, he recommended a cathetherization instead and it worked to solve my son's condition. Dr. Thompson is very personable, explains everything in details in terms you can understand and he truly cares for his patients. I highly recommend him!
