Great doctor!
in Bay Saint Louis, MS |
New from out of town. His main concerns are with the DEA and not with the quality of caring for his patient's. Doesn't treat the patient's pain or even care about the pain. Just how the law tells him how to prescribe medications. He also lets you know "If you don't like it go somewhere else!" Not a good doctor for treating long term chronic pain. His staff is very attentive & caring.

I have had two injections with Dr. Thompson. He has always taken the time to talk to and explain what he is going to do in detail.He is very personal and makes you feel very at ease .I felt great after I had the injections! Definitely will go back to him and recommend him to my friends.

The office staff is terrible. Told my orthopedists, I would be seen that week. Called me with a appointment in two weeks. Meeting with Dr OK. Does not have admitting privileges at any insurance approved hospital. Hospitals just wanted to play let's make a deal. I refused Dr and hospital. Weeks later they are sending me reminders of non appointments. Also, way over charges insurance for services!
New Orleans, LA |
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 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.
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.
