Verified Patient Reviews
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 to jump from one patient to the next! I call it greediness.
Very friendly staff. Prompt and efficient.
Dr. Thompson was very professional and answered all our questions. The office staff was excellent and we were seen on time.
What a kind, professional and knowledgeable doctor!
I was surprised with the wait time. The doctor was great as all his reviews everywhere stated. I drove out of my area because he had great reviews. I wasn't disappointed either. The staff was also great very professional.
I felt confident in his advice and analysis of my situation. He seemed very knowledgeable and competent.
Dr. Thompson was very straight forward and made me feel at ease about the procedure that I need to get done. I feel very comfortable about my upcoming surgery.
Very pleasant and knowlegble
Dr. Thompson was great and the entire staff was very friendly and helpful.
The Bladensburg office is extremely dated and the office staff seemed a bit inexperienced but the doctor was great. The office not so much.
Dr. Thompson was excellent. Great bedside manner and I felt confident in his treatment approach.
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 talk to. Doctor always smiling. Answered all my questions and gave clear directions and consultation. Highly recommended.
I appreciated an early appointment as I was in pain. 48hours The staff were relaxed and friendly. The consultation was smooth and not hurried. I will recommend him highly.
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 an orthopedic 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.
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 Dr!! Staff was pleasant and friendly. Would definitely recommend this Dr.
At Last! A doctor who believes me and has actually treated what I have! I am so grateful and thankful! Maybe finally I can get some relief!
Friendly and professional staff. Short wait time and really liked the Doctor.
I thought the doctor was very nice but the front desk staff were all unprofessional and rude.
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 pain and 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 Dr. was great! I only had an issue with the professionalism of the front desk crew, 3 out of 4 of them seem like they didn't want to be there.
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 my visit. Not a big deal just a little aggitating.
He was nice And very helpful!!
The wait time was a little long due to numerous new patients who of course had to do all of the registration paperwork. Highly recommended.
