Dr Thompson treated my fractured elbow previously. Was very glad that he could take care of the knee pain I was having. Explained everything in detail. Through portal was able to ask questions I had forgotten. Answered them in detail the next day. Very very satisfied. Didn’t have but maybe a 5 minute wait before being called back to room

Dr. Thompson is the best in the business. Not one of the best. THE BEST. He fixed my left shoulder when I was playing ball. He later performed 2 surgeries on my elbow for nagging injuries. I could not be happier with the results of the surgeries by the hands of Dr. Thompson. I have not had a single issue since recovering from those surgeries. While undergoing physicals with several teams after college every single team physician that looked at my shoulder commented on what a great job the surgeon had done. There is a reason the NFL has invited him to the combine several times to work with teams and athletes. They want the best around their players and that is what they get with Dr. Thompson. His down to earth, friendly personality and caring professional staff are just icing on the cake. Whenever someone mentions that they are having issues with an elbow or a shoulder I Immediately refer them to Dr. Thompson. Why? No one is better. Dr. Thompson is the Best.

Dr. Thompson performed arthroscopic repair of my knee ligaments after a fencing injury. He and his staff did an excellent job and I anticipate a full recovery with a return to competitive fencing in short order. I recommend him without reservation.

I met Dr. Thompson during an emergency room visit where my thumb was almost completely amputated. He did emergency surgery, told me the possibilities good and bad before surgery and left me wrapped up in recovery. Followup was in office and he did xrays and reevaluated my condition. I know I will lose partial use of my thumb but I know if it were not for his expertise and urgency I would not have even kept any part of my thumb. Very impressed and will recommend to anyone. I am a former nurse and medic and we can pick apart any practice and find bad,but not with his.

Dr.Thompson recently operated on my tennis elbow. He did a fantastic job and I couldn't be happier with the care of the whole team from surgeon to physician assistant to anesthesia to nursing to office staff. Thank you. I'm only sorry I waited so long to have this done.

Dr. Thompson is the most friendly, compassionate, and caring physician I've ever dealt with. After performing emergency surgery to save my arm, he gave me his personal cell phone number and promptly responded to any questions or concerns I had. On top of all this he is a brilliant surgeon; I truly believe if he wasn't my surgeon I would have lost the ability to use my arm. He prescribes medication on an individual case by case basis, not just a one size fits all approach. Amazing doctor!!
