Dr. Tompkins preformed a multi-level TLIF spinal fusion in 2012. I found him an extremely talented, professional, highly skill to perform my operation and giving great care for his patients. I experienced great success and improvement from this difficult operation. Dr. Tompkins took great care of me from pre/post surgicial state through the recovery months. He is very patience, kind, great communicator and has excellent bed side manor. Thank you Dr. Tompkins! Back patients-look no further!
