WARNING

Posted on January 6th, 2015

He has residents surreptitiously perform his operations. Teaching is more important to him than doctoring.

Nice person but

Dr Thomson is a very gentle and polite doctor. My main issue is that he (his staff? whomever) give very little information about what is going to happen, recovery, therapy. I am sure they are all busy, but it makes the patient feel so unimportant and uninformed.

I had 2 surgeries performed by Dr Thomson.The outcome was excellent each time and I was very pleased.He is a no nonsense doctor with a sort of detached bedside manner ,but he does a great job and that is what counts to me.He's there to fix my problem not be my buddy.Kind of hard to get to see him and you're dealing with the massive Yale health giant which can be a pain.All in all he's the best one for surgery of the hand,wrist etc. and I have had other hand surgery by other doctors.
