Total knee replacement in August. Unsuccessful. A revision in January of the same knee unsuccessful kneecap is moving to the left locking my leg up after the second surgery. Now requires a third surgery. Dr. Thompson does not get a third shot at one leg

The first time I met with Dr. Thompson, he told me I didn't need him YET, but I would in a couple of years (2009). And I did (2013). And now I'm back in 2019 with a new total knee replacement! I was impressed that he wasn't just there to get my signature...

DO NOT SEE DR. JOHN THOMPSON!!!!!! I WAS TREATED VERY POORLY. I WENT IN FOR KNEE ISSUES AND WAS TOLD "YOU'RE NOT A CANDIDATE FOR SURGERY, THERE IS NOTHING I CAN DO FOR YOU" I WAS NEVER GIVEN ANY RECOMENDATIONS ONLY ESCORTED OUT THE DOOR WITH A BILL. I WAS FORCED TO GIVE ONE STAR TO DO THIS REVIEW IF THERE WERE NEGATIVE STARS HE WOULD RECEIVE ALL OF THEM

Shortly after moving to Sun City from Iowa, my right knee started aching a lot. Dr. Thompson was highly recommended to me by a friend. Although it took a little while to get an appointment, it was well worth the wait! Awesome doctor - really listens to you and helps you understand what the problems are with the knee. Takes the necessary time to listen and explain what your options are. He did a right total knee replacement and my pain is gone!! Thank you, Dr. Thompson!!

Dr. Thompson, is in my opinion, simply the best doctor of any kind that I've ever been a patient of in my 60 years. Not only did he save my life after I shattered my femur and had a 3 week old hip replacement torn out when I had the accident, but he also had to deal with the considerable amount of blood loss that I incurred during the accident. His willingness to explain and help you understand all facets of the surgery and recovery were unmatched by any other physician that I've seen.
