I was very impressed with the office and the staff. Some doctors offices are small and cramped. Which for me makes waiting unbearable. At Dr. Thompsons Hillside office there is plenty of room in the waiting area. Well lit and thestaff is friendly and knowledgable. Examination room is the same. Plenty of room not small and cramped. Annette was my intake nurse. Very courteous and professional. Dr. Thompson took his time. He has a calming, professional manner.

The staff was very friendly. The office is in a convenient location near public transportation. Office was clean and spacious. The wait was just about an hour but I really didn't mind because I didn't feel crowded, nor were there anyannoying patients. The Dr. examined to see what the problem was and scheduled an MRI. He was friendly but very brief. Not very too talkative but still professional. I have to follow up. This was my first visit,

Very nice doctor listed to my concerns regarding my injuries but wasn't a provider to assist me in the required treatment options for my sustained injuries. I'd definitely recommend this provider to any one who needs general orthopedic consultation.

Didn't even feel like a doctor's visit more like a close friend concerned about my health. Now I understand the wait and if he treats everyone the way he treated me, I'll wait as long as it takes because I knowwhen I'm in the exam room with him I have his undivided attention.

Sean Thompson, MD seemed to be very knowledgable. I described the problem and he tested my knee for exactly what he thought the problem is. He hit right on the nail and i'm confident that his diagnosis and treatment will have my knee back to normal in no time.

After waiting for nearly 2 hours in a very small and crowded office space I was taken into a room to get x-rayed in what seemed to be equipment from 1976 (that aside, the x-raying was actually relatively quick and convenientthat they did it on site), after which I was able to speak to the doctor for a few minutes. The doctor's bedside manner and interaction was lukewarm, but not necessarily bad. I didn't feel like he was shooing me out, but I didn't feel like he was really trying to understand me and my injury.

After waiting about an hour and 20 minutes I was about to walk out when I was called in. The waiting room is a joke (unless it's 1986). I know it's NY, but still. And phone reception is bad in there.Dr Thompson was a nice guy and seemed to know his stuff (though I was only in there for about 10 minutes). I gave the Dr a "good" 4 star ranking because he was good. But the xray room and facilities are old and beat up looking. 1986 might be generous. If you go here, bring a lot to keep you busy with while you wait.

He was a little behind schedule, and I didn't get the sense that he cared much about why I was there or my condition. However, he has a wealth of knowledge as orthopedic. His diagnostic methods and analysis seem very competent.
