This was the most unprofessional medical experience I have ever had. Dr Tompson could tell what was wrong with me just by looking, no touching or disrobing !! Not. What a quack. Definitely not the patients best friend, he reminds me of a L & I Dr. Be wary, very wary!

Dr. Thompson's staff is incompetent. When I called his office regarding my referral I was told the referral had arrived 2 days earlier, but the doctor had 10 business days to review the referral. Ten business days later I called back only to be told that the doctor was out of the office and my referral was still being reviewed. Two days later I called back and was told that my referral had never been sent to them and they didn't know what I was talking about. I called my referring doctor and suggested we go with a different doctor. Doctor Thompson might actually be the best hand surgeon in Tacoma, but his staff is a direct reflection of him, and they are incompetent. Stay away and go with a different doctor.

Dr Thompson doesn't spend much time with explanation of what he's done or doing. It seems as though he is more concerned about his reputation than listening to his patients. On the other hand his PA-C is awesome. Alex takes the time to really communicate what she is doing, plus she listens and actually shows she cares.

Dr. Thompson took X-rays of my knee. Came in about 20 minutes later and told me I have a stress fracture and I can't participate in any athletics for 10-12 weeks. He did not bring in the X-ray to show me the stress fracture. He didn't say "because of this activity, the bone wore down ect. He never told me how to heal it, (ice, anti- inflammatory, physical therapy)This was upsetting because it meant I would miss the first 3 football games of the season. So my dad confirmed, "nothing for 10-12 weeks?" Thompson shot back a reply of "you heard what I said." We decided to see another doctor, he looked at the X-rays and told me their was no stress fracture. Just tendontits.
