Dr. Thomson is one of the most thorough, professional and compassionate doctors I've seen in years. After a day in the ER, he called me at home as soon as he received my lab work showing my thyroid levels were very high. He wanted to see me immediately and saw me the next morning before his other patients arrived. Even though this was an unscheduled appointment, he did not rush, he explained everything very thoroughly, and established a treatment plan. He continues to monitor my treatment.

One of the worst interface ever with a doctor. He is arrogant and rude. Does not feel that he should have to explain his decisions to the patient. It was apparent that he did not appreciate having his interrupt his 'busy' schedule to speak with the patient. If there were minus stars I would give him a minus 19. He should be in a research lab, mot making decisions regard patient care.
in Mc Neal, AZ |
Rude and I question his evaluation.
