What People Say About Dr. William Thompson, MD
Reply
He has been my husband's doctor for over 20 years at the va hospital. He has been a good doctor for taking care of him. But I wish that he would follow up on more appointments for my husband especially when its around the holidays and in January. That's when he gets sick more often. I hold my breath every year in January for him not to be in the hospital. He has been in intensive care the last 2 years this time of year. For 2 weeks to a month. I wish he would evaluate him a little more.
