Dr. Tompkins is a true professional. I totally trust him. He explains the situation and the options to repair my condition. I do recommend him to everyone. I am thankful he is at TOA . He has scoped both of my knees and worked on my shoulder. I know he has my well being at heart.

I have been treated by Dr. Tompkins for eleven years. From knee surgery to torn ligaments in both arms, back surgery and sciatica. He is my go to guy for all things orthopedic. He also did my mother's knee replacement and she did very well.
