Dr. Catherine Thompson is one of the most talented physicians I have had in my almost 60 of life. She is outstanding in her field and her warm professionalism combined with her sense of humor (I must in my life) allows her to effectively communicate the issues effecting both my short-term and long-term health issues. For that; I will always be grateful.
