×Post a ResponseAre you Dr. William Thompson IV, MD?
Dr. Thompson is very skilled and did a great job of relieving my back pain. However, trying to get into to see him or have the office staff response to my needs where very poor. I requested two prescription refills, gabapentin and Ibuprofen which were never acknowledged after three attempts by the pharmacy and my calls to their office. When prescribed the gabapentin, I was instructed not to go off it without a taper down. Poor patient care.
