Mr Thompson has operated on my son, Michael, twice in three years. First and foremost, he is an amazing neurosurgeon- but it is the fact that he breaks the ‘surgeon’ mould by being so personable that makes him extra special for me. My son has a long list of medical issues and we’ve met numerous surgeons in his little life, and Mr Thompson, without doubt, is the best. He is thorough in his clinical practice, kind and calm in his bedside manner. He listens and is empathetic and delivers information about surgeries etc with patience. I trust him implicitly and could not ask for a better surgeon for my little boy. And Michael loves him!! Thank you Mr Thompson!!
Mr Thompson is a fantastic consultant words can not explain or describe how professional and truly gifted he is we owe our child's life to him a very special person indeed thank you. Mr Thompson performed a c1 fixation and decompression of of our young child's spine. He has a execellent team around him thank you again so much. I would be more than happy to speak to families that would be about to go threw what we did and to be contact threw Mr Thompsons team at gosh.
The day of the operation was both stressful and emotional. The nursing staff on the Koala ward made the day bearable. The standard of care that both me and my parents received was outstanding. Thank you all. If you ever find yourself in care of Mr Thompson and his team, you've got no need to worry, you're in safe hands.
I was under the care of Mr Thompson for nearly six years, during which he operated on me five times, and I can honestly say that I never questioned Mr Thompson's advice because I have always confident in the knowledge that he knew what was best for me. Mr Thompson would always explain to me, and my family, what needed doing, in terms that I could understand, while still addressing me and not treating me like a child - something that he has continued to do over the years. Another thing that is great about Mr Thompson is that he only ever gives information that he is one hundred per cent sure of, which really helped me and my parents in dealing with everything. I am now so much better and it is because of Mr Thompson and the other wonderful staff at Great Ormond Street Hospital. Thank you!
We visited several times over 2yrs with our daughter who has a growth disability. Dominic Thompson was reviewing her case and medical needs including reviewing the scans of her neck and back. He has assured us that there are no concerns and put aside any fears we may have had. He was also very good with our daughter and made the whole experience go as well as could be expected for something of this nature involving a childs health and numerous hospital visits. Great Ormond Street and the people who work there are still doing wonderful things. there really is no place quite like it that I know of. Thank You.
