I broke both bones in my leg, just above the ankle. Dr. Thompson did my surgery. I had to have a plate & 6 screws put in. The only pain that I had was some discomfort from the staples that closedthe incision. I've since had the staples removed, and am well on my way to recovery. Great doctor. Really nice guy. Great staff. Nice clean office in a great location. Takes Obama-care. Awesome!

I'm aware that you cannot expect to be in an out from a Doctor's office, is ridiculous though that if your appointment is at 3:30 and you don't get to see the Doctor until almost 5:00 because he's overbooked trying tojump from one patient to the next! I call it greediness.

Took his time, explained why avoiding surgery was the best option for my overall mobility (which I found surprising coming from an orthopedic surgeon), and sited research that he and others conducted to back up his diagnosis.

Great service from the time in the door until out. Electronic check-in was convenient and staff at front desk were courteous and quick. Bedside manner was excellent, from the Xray technician to the Doctor. Both east going and easy to talkto. Doctor always smiling. Answered all my questions and gave clear directions and consultation. Highly recommended.

Dr. Thompson is very knowledgeable, but he seems very rushed. The office is not very organized and the wait is awful! If I had the opportunity to go somewhere else for my broken ankle I would. For this to be anorthopedic office, there is not much seating and the staff is not very sympathetic to the disabilities of the patients due to this. The waiting room does not have enough chairs, and often people are standing without seats since the wait is so long.

Dr. Thompson is very professional and very personable. He doesn't over-prescribe, try to sell you ortho equipment, or go straight for the surgery option. I definitely recommend Dr. Thompson.

Honestly, Dr. Thomas and the X Ray technician were great. The front desk team was terrible. They were all in a terribly sour mood and when you come to an Orthopedic doctor's office, most folks are in a lot of painand probably pretty grumpy. Courteousness and smiling goes a LONG way to make people feel better. I had to tell them that I had a co-pay, they had no idea. Front desk team 0 out of 10. Doctor and med team - 8-10. I deducted a couple of points because I had to wait to 2 hours past my appointment time.

The doctor was great. The front desk staff attempted to charge me for a outstanding co pay for a day I never came. Eventually got it all straightening out but the staff was not pleasant about giving a receipt for myvisit. Not a big deal just a little aggitating.
