What People Say About Dr. Matthew Thompson, MD
RecentMost Helpful
Reply
I found Dr. Thompson with the ZocDoc app, (great app). I broke both bones in my leg, just above the ankle. I had to have a plate & 6 screws put in. Dr. Thompson did the surgery last month, and the only minor discomfort that I had, was from the staples. I'm well on my way to recovery, and very happy with the entire experience. Great Doctor, nice guy. Great staff. Clean office. Great locations. Thanks.

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!
