HE IS THE BEST IN SHREVEPORT, AND FOR MILES AROUND

I have been using DR THOMPSON since he started practicing sometimes in the early 80's Dr Thompson literally saved my life due to heart problems.. I would recommend him to anyone who wants a DR who truly cares for his patients Dr's like Dr Thompson don't come along very often. This man is a 10+ in my humble opinion.

Five Stars

I have been going to see Dr. Thompson for about ten years. Before I started seeing him, my health problems were unmanaged. I was going to see all different specialists who gave me all kinds of drugs that were not correcting my problems. Dr. Thompson figured out what my real problems were and medicated me appropriately (without using narcotics) and allowed me to resume a normal working life. Prior to seeing him, I was almost completely unable to work at my chosen profession of nursing. My husband would never see a doctor before going to see Dr. Thompson. Now, he doesn't mind at all. His down to earth nature makes him feel welcome. In fact, he treats both of my children and many of my sisters. I would not recommend a doctor to my family that I don't believe in myself. He is thorough and thoughtful with every decision regarding our care. I would highly recommend him to anyone.

Excellent Family Doctor

Dr. Thompson is quite knowledgeable and takes great care and concern when evaluating problems or potential problems. He is very focused when diagnosing. As one who detests doctor visits I found him to be very comfortable to talk to and I don't get that "white coat fear" with him. I would highly recommend him as an excellent primary care physician.
