Patient Comments (2)
In my experience she was not "professional", a little rude even, and impatient. This would not have bothered me enough to write any kind of review, but what got me was how rude she was to her assistants. When Dr. Tompkins exited the exam room, followed by her assistant and myself, I watched the door slam right in the assistants face.. I do not consider treating your employees poorly to be professional behavior, and I will be finding a different doctor in the fu

I have been a patient of Dr. Tompkins for over 10 years. I arrived to my most recent appointment 11 minutes late. It was a new location in UTC instead of La Jolla and there was construction going on which made me late. When I arrived I told the front office staff my name and they said "oh you're a new patient." I said "no." And they insisted I must be a new patient. Then they told me I was too late to see the doctor and I would need to reschedule. The "Office Manager" was also rude.
