Would recommend, but he is retiring.
Patient | August 22, 2018

I absolutely love Dr Thompson . I had him as my cardiologist since 2011 - 2015 then my insurance changed and had to find another cardiologist. just this year I found out that my insurance starting accepting Vandy doctors again! hallelujah!! I love all my Vandy doctors and quickly contacted all of them to schedule everything through Vandy.. I am saddened that Dr Thompson is going to retire soon. purely for selfish reasons. He deserves to be retired but I really am going to miss him

Dr Thompson was the most rude and uncaring medical professional I've ever seen.
Patient | June 18, 2018

Dr Thompson is been one of my cardiologist for the last 4 yrs and I think hei is great he has help me tremendously.
Patient | June 4, 2018

Said he was retiring this year and clearly didn't care at all about friendliness. I felt I was wasting this time and he was fairly rude.
Patient | May 29, 2018

I appreciate the way he handles himself. I feel very confident with him handling my healthcare.
Patient | May 28, 2018

Great Doctor !!!!!
Patient | April 23, 2018

Dr. Thompson seemed dismissive at times, insulting at others, like maybe I didn't know what I was talking about. I don't doubt his knowledge and ability, just the respect of his interactions.

A great place to get treatments and advice
Patient | February 19, 2018

Dr. Thompson spent a good deal of time with me talking about some different heart procedures I had heard about. He very graciously explained them to me and listened to all my questions and gave me easy to understand explanations. I am going to miss him so very much.
Patient | January 30, 2018

The doctor seemed angry that I was in his office, was mad at me that he could not locate one of my tests in his system, and was overall very rude. I was scared to have to see a specialist in the first place and could have used a friendly, comforting presence instead of a gruff, angry one. Whereas I should have been relieved that he did not think anything was wrong, I left feeling scolded for coming in, and I actually cried after I left.

Dr Thompson seemed very dismissive of my complaints. I felt tests were ordered to appease me rather than to get to the bottom of symtoms

informative, undstanding care
Patient | December 11, 2017

Dr. Thompson stated that as a cardiologist, he did not feel that needed to manage the blood pressure. Which surprised us because we were there for a 2nd opinion after many physicians felt the original BP med caused pancreatitis. Since going off the med the blood pressure was not controlled we asked primary care dr for referral. Basically left there feeling like he wasnt interested in taking care of me and went back to my primary. As it turned out new meds needed more time to be effective. I would never return to this physician in the future.
