Dr Thompson’s skills, personality, and care for his patients are all outstanding. After back surgery and care from other providers I was still in pain. He has been able to help me manage that pain and lead an active life.

Although this visit was a FaceTime visit because of the Cover virus I have had other visits with Dr. Thompson, Stacy and Brooke. Everyone with the staff including the ones I mentioned have been very professional and they treated me with the utmost care and respect. I feel I am given all the options available to me for controlling my pain. Thanks Dr. Thompson

Very happy with Dr Thompson and his staff! I had sciatica pain in my left leg that was unbearable. I ended up needing to get an epidural, they took the time to explain the procedure to me and answer all my questions. Everyone was nice and supportive.

Dr Thompson has been the most attentive and caring Dr. I’ve been associated with. He’s really your advocate in your corner, he’s thorough, down to earth, and will exhaust every option in your best interest to make you well again. He genuinely cares about you as a patient and can emphasize what you’re going through. I haven’t been a slam dunk patient as my situation has been complex but he’s never stopped caring and given up on me like other Dr’s. Dr. Thompson is as old school with his time and patience as it gets even with today’s modern medical module of “ get you in and out ASAP”. Do yourself a favor and use Dr. Thompson for your pain management needs.
