    Would NEVER use this dr again. After a hip replacement I was having leg pain 4 months later. Went to see dr Thompson and he said everything looked fine. A year and a half later I'm still having pain and went to see another surgeon that told me that there was an issue. I called Dr Thompson and saw him the next day. He told me "maybe I should have used a larger implant" and have me the name of another surgeon.

    Dr. Thompson knew everything about my injury, and was able to explain it to me clearly. I'm recovering quite well. He runs a very relaxed place in his Poughkeepsie office. Even his dog has the run of the place. One of the ladies in the office is a bit unfriendly (or just cold), and the wait times can be long. But medically, everything was fine, and that's what really matters.
