    I was referred to Dr. Thompson after having no "in network" doctors when I had to go on "Obamacare" available for my crumbling knees. I'm too young to have knee replacement surgery so I have been keeping them going with first steroid shots and then Euflexxa shots. Staff was very helpful in getting me seen and then getting me straight to what works without needing intermediate steps that dont' work. Insurance problems galore but they handled it. Doc does most painless shots ever!
