Dr. Thompson is the best you can find. He has done 2 surgeries on me and always answer any questions you have and describes what to expect. Before I had my second surgery I was told to use other doctors. I was not pleases at all with any of them. I then went backs to Dopson and he told me that I do not have to use him but then explained what he would do to me. He told me that we were going for 90% and will probably have 40 to 50% relief and that is what I got. He is very straight forward.

Every appointment with Dr Dopson has been stat since I have had debilitating pain, due to a herniated disc. He and his staff have been so accommodating & wonderful to me! Every request I have made & need I have is always addressed in a timely manner by his wonderful MA Candy. My first visit I was a work in, and I know I put him behind, but he still took the time to review everything with me & answer all of my questions. He is very thorough, knowledgable, & compassionate toward his patients.
