Dr.Thompson was very thorough, efficient and has a very pleasant manner. He took the time to explain the x-ray that was taken and provide me with options.Other than the cortisone shot (yow-sa!) it was a very pleasant experience. I also was in and out in a very timely manner which I appreciate.

I saw the wall of mostly white male physicians prominently displayed in the waiting room. Is OrthoNebraska ever going to entertain diversity in your providers?

I had a good experience with Dr. Thompson and explanations and things during my appointment, but I haven't yet heard from them for a follow up date for my MRI. So I don't feel like there's closure to my appointment just yet.
