    How was your appointment with Dr. Thompson?

    Jan 03, 2021
    I cut two nerves on my hand. First the ER send me to see a plastic surgeon and I was not satisfied so I call the Script orthopedic. I met with Doctor Thompson for about an hour when he explained what my injury is and how we will fixed that. The surgery went well and I am recovering. He and his staff were very nice and have done everything to help the process of the surgery and the recovery. I recommend him for any orthopedic injury. He is the best. Thanks to him.
