Patient Comments (2)

I used Dr. Thompson for a nagging ankle injury. I have to say, I was really nervous to go to a doctor and really putting it off. Dr. Thompson put all my fears aside and made me feel completely secure. His advice and direction was reassuring and my path to recovery is now complete!
