I've been seeing Dr. Thompson for around 7 years. He's great. The office staff is great. I can honestly say that I have never had anything even resembling a negative experience with them. They're all friendly and helpful and accommodating. Dr. Thompson never rushes through the appointment, he takes the time to actually talk to you. And not just about your medical needs but about what's going on in your life. What I'm trying to say is that Dr. Thompson is a really great doctor.

I went there for a prescription refill for depression. He didn't ask any questions, didn't seem to take me seriously, and was condescending. He said he would prescribe whatever from the strongest antidepressant to cutting back to nothing. I had to take my shirt off for him check my blood pressure. I left feeling even more hopeless than I had before I walked in. He might be fine for traditional medical issues but stay far away if you are being treated for mental illness or are a young woman.

Dr Thompson is old-school, in a good way! Great advice regarding health and diet, weight loss and cardiac issues. Also, very reassuring. Practices what he preaches. But if you want a doctor to order a lot of fancy tests for no compelling reason, he's probably not your guy.

I love Dr. Thompson! He's helped me get over my fear of the doctor because he and his staff are very nice and have been good at accommodating my nerves. I like his Glycemic Load plan and actually bought the book a year ago.

Not very knowledge about to many things in my opinion. Nonchalant attitude and down to earth. Supplies and equipment are antiquated and outmoded. Its like the doctors office in the 70's. If you are an older woman or man you may be pleased with this doctor he is just not my first choice.

I am looking for a new GP. I came in with a couple of existing issues including a tough case of tennis elbow. I described the pain I'd been experiencing for over a month. The Dr. smiled and said, I have good news and bad news. The good news is you have Tennis Elbow and it always heals. The bad news is that it will take 6 to 9 months to heal and there is nothing you can do. A month later, I was talking to a coworker and described my issue to them. They gave me two simple exercises to do with a 2.5 pound weight. My tennis elbow was gone in 1 week. As a prospective patient coming in, I would have expected some amount of screening. There was no pulse taken, no BP taken, no weight measured. While I appreciated the laid back interaction at the time, in retrospect, I feel like I need a different level of scrutiny from my primary care provider.

Dr, Thompson seems extremely competent and caring. He focuses on avoiding future health problems which seems unusual and is refreshing. I have seen him for over 20 years. I'm almost 60 with no health problems and I attribute much of my success to his good advice about healthy eating and exercise.

One of the best doctor's office visits I've had. Dr. Thompson and staff were very accommodating, knowledgeable, and courteous. The doctor spent more than an adequate amount of time with me and went over everything from A to Z. I've definitely happy with my new personal physician.
