Dr Thompson has been my pain management physician since 2014 and has take excellent care of me. He takes the time to listen and then offers treatments that are specific to your individual needs (I have never felt like I have been put in a "box" based on my diagnosis). Dr. Thompson is very knowledgeable, compassionate, attentive, skillful, and reassuring. I appreciate all he has done for me over the years and present. He also has a responsible team that he works with, his Physician Assistant Tiffany Walker, medical and office staff at the Gilbert office, they are amazing!

Dr Thompson explained the options at the initial visit. Decided on a steroid shot and scheduled the appointment for the next week. I was expecting a 1-2 hour session for the shot. I walked in right on time, and out in 18 minutes. Its like the staff was waiting for me to show up and got right to work. Excellent!

Everyone was very professional and pleasant. I was treated with respect and Dr. Thompson was thorough and listened to what I had to say. I felt that he had concern for my problems and made suggetions but didn't demand. I truly he was concerned for what was best for me.

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
