I'm surprised to see some of the negative reviews posted here about Dr. Thompson. He's been nothing but helpful to me. There isn't enough room to describe everything he's done for me. One thing that some people may not like is his honesty. He tells me straight up what he's thinking. I love that! Sometimes I don't like what I hear. If a doctor only tells me what I want to hear, he probably isn't helping. If you want real help, see Dr. Thompson.

Dr.Thompson and his staff are all incredibly nice and efficient. He listened to my concerns and addressed them accordingly and very thorough. He treats you with respect and goes above and beyond in diagnosing and treating his patients. Excellent physician that I highly recommend.
Mandeville, LA |
Dr. Thompson is not a push over for pain medication. He tests every patient and makes sure they are in NEED of pain medication. However, once he has documentation of chronic pain his attention to patients is outstanding. He is continually looking for new and better ways to treat chronic pain and ways to improve the lives of pain patients.

One of the truly outstanding professional in any profession. So many doctors offices don't have the infrastructure to support their business but Dr. Thompson's staff is as good as he is a doctor.
in Covington, LA |
I came to him as a patient that moved here from a different location. The treatment I was receiving was working, he initially told me he had no problem keeping me on the sane treatment plan I had been on for years, then at my third appointment he changed everything, required me to do procedures that did not work that I have tried multiple times before and cause me more pain, and he put me on stronger unwanted medication. I continued to see him because I wanted to believe his plan was better. No.
in Picayune, MS |
Doctor is dismissive and doesn't listen to patients. Staff is too busy to return phone calls and completely ignored follow up calls for problems after surgery. Heading to emergency room shortly, hopefully I can get my mother into an Ochsner clinic so we don't have to deal with this lack of follow-up care again.
in Hammond, LA |
Dr. walked into the exam room, noticed me crying (i was scared to death) and told my mother, who was with me, your daughter is hysterical, i can not treat her!?! Looking back on this appointment, i am even more shocked than i was that day, the simple fact that A DR. would not try to comfort his patient, who is obviously upset, blows my mind! if your looking for bed side manner- Dr.Thompson- In My Humble Opinion-Doesn't have it, sorry....he surely didn't show me any signs he did.
