Chapin, SC |
I had a very bad experience with this doctor and the office where he works. I would not recommend him.
in Hickory, NC |
Dr. Tab Thompson is the only doctor who has been able to help me understand and treat my chronic sinus problems that have plagued me since a child. The balloon plasty he performed went flawlessly. He's now the only doctor I trust to treat any ENT issues I have. I will drive 3 hours from NC and take a day off work just to see him. Thank you Dr. Thompson! You have literally made a huge difference in my life. I cannot thank you enough.
