What People Say About Dr. Michael Thompson, MD
Reply
Dr. Thompson ignored my complaints about excessive pain post-surgery for nearly two years. He said it was normal and that the pain can take up to two years to go away, but this was pain so bad I couldn’t do things like drive myself or walk more than six blocks without throbbing pain. When I finally saw a new doctor, he looked at the last x-rays Dr. Thompson had taken and saw my bones were drastically misaligned! I wish I’d seen the other doctor sooner, because now I have chronic pain issues.

Horrible experience!!!! Performed my surgery then threw me away!! Surgery was supposed to take 2 hours; he finished in 30 minutes. Surgery was a complete failure. He only seen me for one only one follow up visit. The offie or nurse never returned my calls. I ended up finding another Orthopedic doctor to take over my care. I completed Physical Therapy only to learn that the surgery was a complete failure I am now repeating surgery a year later.!!! Don't trust this doctor!!!!
