I would highly recommend Dr. Tompkins. My experience with Dr. Tomkins and his NP Jeff was absolutely wonderful. He was able to diagnosis, perform the surgery to relieve the pain and seriousness of my spine. The office staff was very professional, kind, compassionate and never once disappointed me or my family when being contacted for an appointment. Dr. Tompkins has a wonderful bedside manner, explains details, cares about his patients and provided excellent care. MY THANKS!

I FOUND HIM ONLINE ABOUT 2 MONTH AGO AND MADE SURE HE ACCEPTS MY INSURANCE. I GOT AN APPOINTMENT WITH HIS OFFICE FOR WHICH WAS ABOUT A MONTH WAIT (UNDERSTANDABLE) A DAY BEFORE APPOINTMENT THEY CANCELLED MY APPOINTMENT BECAUSE DOCTOR HAD AN EMERGENCY SURGERY (IT HAPPENS RIGHT?) SO I WAS IN SUCH A BIG PAIN I ASKED IF POSSIBLY SEE ME IN A DAY OR TWO? THEY REFUSED GAME ME APPOINTMENT 2 WEEKS AFTER THEY CALLED AND CANCELLED AGAIN CAUSE THEY HAVE ISSUE WITH THE INSURANCE, IMMORAL & UNACCEPTABLE!

Dr Thompkins has performed three surgeries on my spine within three year period I could not have asked for a better surgeon or a better staff to work with. I was blessed when I stumbled on an Dr Thompkins. And Jeff is just a bonus.

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!
