What People Say About Dr. Michael Thompson, MD
Reply
Dr. Thompson thoroughly explained my CMC arthroplasty surgery, post surgery care & expected outcomes. I found him to be caring & an excellent surgeon. Several months after the surgery, I jammed the thumb & inflamed the surgery site. A visit to Dr. Thompson & a properly placed injection resolved my pain. I highly recommend him
