AWESOME DOCTOR

I had been under the care of a doctor for 6 days for a bowel blockage, and getting worse each day. I sought a different doctor, Dr. Tompkins, and within approximately an hour after he assessed my condition he performed emergency surgery before my bowel ruptured. Dr. Tompkins is the most awesome doctor I have ever met.
