I am always a bit bewildered at the front desk and how that is run but can't offer any suggestions either. I am nuts about this Doc.

Very helpful and explained my condition and treatment well. I would recommend Dr Thompson to anyone experiencing foot pain, especially if you do not want surgery as an answer to your problem. He gave good options for treatment and my PT helped my condition.

Dr. Thompson is an excellent physician. I had a terrible sprain in my right ankle when I first went to see him. He was very thorough and explained my treatment options carefully. I am fully recovered and have no pain at all. I am so thankful for his expertise and the wonderful staff at TOA!

Murfreesboro, TN |
Dr Thompson was extremely unprofessional. He continued to push on my ankle and foot after I explained it hurt incredible bad. He laughed at me when I told him that I was hurting and said he didn't see any reason to treat me. I would absolutely never recommend him.
in Pikeville, TN |

Nashville, TN |
in Murfreesboro, TN |
Dr Thompson is an excellent surgeon. He is very easy to talk with and explain the surgery you need. I would highly recommend him to anyone and I would not do that to some of my passed Doctors.
in Nashville, TN |
Dr. Thompson took the time to explain each reason for the pain in all areas of my foot and Achilles tendon area. We discussed treatments at length with him being able to give me many options to help resolve my pain. His staff was very pleasant, courteous and friendly. Could not have asked for a better experience and a more caring physician. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!!
in Murfreesboro, TN |
When I was referred to Dr. Thompson, I was facing a ankle fusion prognosis. Dr. Thompson took the time to research my case thoroughly and discovered an alternative to fusion to ease my pain. Oh, and did I mention he was able to remove an unwanted/unneeded bone in my foot? The surgery went perfectly, my recovery was quick and I feel tremendously better than I did before surgery. Definitely a win!
in Murfreesboro, TN |
Dr Thompson was very kind and attentive. He took time to listen to my concerns, ask questions and assess my injury. I have an autoimmune illness often blamed for my discomfort but after he reviewed X-rays, looked at my ankle and observed me walking, standing and raising up onto my toes he was able to give me an answer for my pain. most of the time I feel like Doctors find that I have this illness and they just dismiss what I'm feeling as part of it. I am hopeful because dr Thompson didn't.
Nashville, TN |
Very pleasant, explains in detail the diagnosis. Staff was very nice.
Murfreesboro, TN |
Dr. Thompson doesn't seem very knowledgeable. I have torn ligaments and damaged scar tissue around my ankle and he sent me back to work. I can barely walk. I would not recommend Dr Thompson.
in Murfreesboro Tn |
He was rude on two different occasions. I will not recommend him to anyone
