Dr Thompson is the best!
I had written about the 1000 characters allowed when the whole review went off the screen. don't know it you got it or not. Dr. Thompson is wonderful, but front office needs some work. I sat there for my appointment, for almost two hours. Evidentially the back office didn't know I was there. I signed in like 10:10 am and didn't get out of there until after 12:00 noon. I am way to patient and appreciate Dr Thompson and thought she was maybe just running late. I know she will take the time to see patients. But the back office didn't know that I had signed in. Bad when you have a great doctor, but a front desk that isn't alert and uncoordinated. Makes your doctors and assistants days tougher than they should be.

Awesome physician with a great "bedside" manner !
Dr. Thompson is extremely knowledgeable, had a great office staff, and is very easy to talk to send understand. She is firm, but understands real life and real life situations. She is willing to talk and discuss things and options and ideas that both the patient and herself have in the treatment of diabetes. She understands what the medical books state, but knows that not everyone fits into those molds and ideas and adapts treatments to the individual. Great doctor and very easy to communicate with.

Very knowledgeable. She cares about her patients and works to improve their health. She is such a good doctor that appointments are scarce and need to be made months in advance. It is worth the wait.

Dr. Thompson -quality care
Dr. Thompson has an excellent background in diabetes care. She thoroughly reviews lab results, in addition, she examines the patient to see if any physical problems may be occurring. It was stunning to hear her inquire if I had seen her medical assistant for usage of my new pump. She provided (me) with the necessary forms for both future lab tests as well as a list of specialists for foot care. To be perfectly frank, Dr. Thompson most likely saved both my life as well as others by allowing me access to both an insulin pump and a sensor. I may have died without her care. Thank Dr. Thompson, Thank you Holy Cross staff!

The Best!
I have been seeing Dr. THOMPSON for several years. I have several endocrine issues and without her expertise I know I would feel horrible. It's always a pleasure to see her. She is so calm personable and thorough. I don't know how she does it. I know she has so many patients it's hard to keep up. (Don't miss your appointment or you might have to wait 6 months). Still she does not rush through the visit, answers all my questions, and makes sure all my blood work is looking good. I'd recommend her to anyone with diabetes or any other endocrine issues. Thank you Dr. Thompson! Side note: her nurse assistant Ms. Linda is also great! Nice as can be. I love her too! She's such a sweet heart and is also very helpful.

My most trusted doctor !
I have been a patient of Dr. Thompson for 17 years post thyroid surgery and she has always been the doctor I trust the most. She is extremely thorough, and is clearly dedicated to my overall health and well being. Thanks to her comprehensive approach during my semi-annual visits she had me see a urologist two and half years ago when my PSA level rose to a suspicious level, which subsequently resulted in the detection and successful treatment of early Stage 1 prostate cancer. When anyone asks me about recommending an endocrinologist Dr. Thompson is always my enthusiastic answer.

KNOWS HER STUFF
I have visited Dr. Thomson a couple of times now. On my first visit she spent quite a bit of time with me. She told me I don't have to give up all of the foods I love and told me that I actually need carbs with my meals for my body to function properly. She changed a few of my meds as well. Since that first visit I have lost weight & my A1C has gone down. She also explained why she was changing my meds. I appreciate the time spent with me and love the outcome! I always turned down my regular doctor when he wanted me to go to an endocrinologist (years), I am glad I finally took the leap.

I have visited Dr Thompson for over a decade. She is one of the most proficient, compassionate caregivers I have ever had the pleasure to meet. She treats the whole woman and tries to integrate my care with my other physicians. I am not an easy patient but she has diligently remained steadfast in her care of my conditions.

I have been seeing Dr. Thompson over a year now she was highly recommended by one of my coworkers so when I googled her the written reviews were even better and I must say she is the epitome of what a Dr should be to a patient which is caring, very detailed and she get to the root of the problem and she is always reminding me to call her if anything does not feel right.
