Dr. Tompkins is a fine surgeon! I have been under his care for a couple of years now and really appreciate his thoroughness, kindness, humbleness, and professional bedside manner. He performed a gastric sleeve surgery on me without any complications even though I was a higher risk patient. He is one of the best for sure! I would highly recommend him. His office staff has always been accommodating and courteous as well.
in Flatwoods, KY |
Dr. Tompkins is a fantastic surgeon as well as his staff. He is excellent and will take time to answer any and all questions as well as explain. I feel very fortunate to have him in our area. He has done 3 surgeries on me and I have had great results with NO Complications at all. I would highly recommend him to all my family and friends.

Very nice, worked us in next day.
in Louisa, KY |
Dr. Tompkins has performed three (3) different surgeries on me, all with wonderful success. To trust a doctor for additional surgeries should say it all! My well being was in his hands not once, but three times. I had been under the care of another doctor, and only getting worst daily. I believe with all my heart that God had Dr. Tompkins in the right place, at the right time, to save my life. KDMC is blessed to have access to his skills. I know that I am.

Never find a better surgeon
in Ashland KY |
I can't say enough good things about Dr. Tompkins. I have known and watched him preform surgery for many years. He is always professional and meticulous. I have personally had him do a gastric sleeve resection with amazing results. I highly recommend his services and would want him if my family would require a general surgery.
He is amazing! My son was fairly young (18) and had never had any prior surgeries. Dr Tompkins explained everything to us. I wouldn't have taken my son to anyone else!

He's a fine surgeon who has done 5 surgeries on me with a good result each time. I literally trust him with my life. He's very thorough and I have complete confidence in him.

Excellent surgery and follow-up experience.
Dr Tompkins operated on my mother and took great care of her. He took his time explaining each and every detail and risk of her surgery. He is an excellent surgeon! Ashland, Ky., and especially KDMC, is lucky to have a surgeon as skilled as him.
