I went to Dr. Thompson for eye lid surgery because he had removed a cancerous tumor from a family members face. For the vast amount of surgery they needed you can hardly tell or see much scaring. This sold me.

I heard about Dr. Thompson from a member of my family. I gave him this rating based on my experience with other plastic surgeons. This is the second cyst I've had removed by a plastic surgeon and it was a MUCH better experience than the first. Dr. Thompson and his team are very friendly and professional. I especially appreciate the time he spent with me. I was in town over the holidays and he removed a cyst from behind my ear. I live in California and haven't been impressed with the type of care I have received here. Dr. Thompson is definitely a gem. I will schedule any addition cosmetic procedures when I'm in town!

I choose Dr. Thompson by speaking with one of his staff at my local beauty salon. They have never disappointed me in service. He is very attuned to insuring one's face looks natural after enhancements. I appreciate that and have recommended him to several friends and family members. He has been upfront and honest with me regarding my concerns. He has given me options that I would not have known about which saved me $$$$. The staff is friendly and greet and know me by my first name. I would highly recommend!!!!!

I asked an employee from another general doctor's office who they considered the best for facial surgery. Dr. Thompson was their preference.

I chose Dr. Thompson when my previous plastic surgeon stopped doing Botox procedures himself, having a technician do the work. It turned out just awful. Dr. Thompson is professional, caring and the results are awesome. I appreciate that he does the procedures himself and does not have a technician or colleague preform the applications like other plastic surgeons I have gone to. He and his staff do many things to make products affordable. Ei: rebates, product promotion certificates, and birthday perks! Very accommodating, friendly staff...Thanks!

I visited with him twice prior to making my decision to be certain. Dr. Thompson explained everything In detail during the procedure, he asked me how I was handing the laser, if I was feeling ok and his staff explained my after care and were always very willing to answer all my questions and assure me that my post laser experiences were normal ! I have complete confidence in Dr Thompson and his staff, as well as the utmost trust. I can't be happier with a doctor than I am with Dr Thompson.

Dr Thompson is the most caring doctor I have ever had the pleasure of working with. Once again, Thanks to you and your staff! One of the things that made my experience so positive, is Dr. Thompson. He is a kind, compassionate man. He advised me in my treatment. His office staff is outstanding and always make me feel important. Thank You Dr Thompson, it has been a pleasure working with you. Insurance does not pay a thing, so I have to save my $ which is not cheap :-) but i feel good about myself and the way I look.

I came in to see Dr. Thompson because I had heard good things about him and that he is very personable. I have always been concerned with how my ears have stuck out and when I wear hats I always tuck them in under. Dr. Thompson was very helpful with explaining the procedure and answering all of my questions. I would recommend Dr. Thompson to anyone and appreciate what he did for me.

I've been going to Dr Thompson for many years after being referred by a close friend, who's father is also a plastic surgeon in another city nearby! I also have a plastic surgeon family member nearby, yet, I choose to see Dr Thompson! Dr Thompson is very personable & caring as well as extremely proficient and skilled. I have had a variety of procedures including fillers and Botox, laser resurfacing, mole removal, ear repair. He is the best! There is no scarring because of his skill and technique! I have referred many family members & friends to him. I trust him with my face!

Dr. Thompson spent quite a bit of time answering questions and making reccomendations based on the look I wanted to achieve. After consulting with several plastic surgeons I chose Dr. Thompson because of his professionalism and obvious attention to detail.

Dr Scott Thompson is amazing, I have had some major problems with my face, a result of bad jaw surgery and nerve damage, and he has always had nothing but positive and good things to say to me. He is so down to earth and has been honest with me when we have talked, and not just about cosmetic surgery or procedures, but also about sinus issues that I've had for a very long time. He cares about his profession and it shows in how he cares about his patients.

Dr. Thompson is able to erase the deep lines in my forehead without making my eyebrows fall. Other doctors and institutions have not been able to achieve this in the past and it's not a good look! His office also offers Brilliant Distinctions, a web based rewards program that helps with the cost of the product, making it more affordable. (I had earned points that took $75.00!) His assistants and office staff are awesome. A+++

I researched for a long time before I chose Dr. T because I wanted someone with an expertise in the face. I hit the jackpot and couldn't be happier with the results and the whole experience. I now have Dr, Thompson do all of my fillers and Botox now also because of how much I like and trust him.

Dr Thompson is so gentle and caring. I was nervous and apprehensive in the beginning, so he would tell me exactly what was happening and what I should expect throughout the procedure. This put me at ease and it was over before I knew it. Now, I trust him fully and never worry at all. I am so happy with my results. Dr Thompson listens to what I want and I look exactly as we discussed. I was so worried i would look puffy or unnatural but I have been beyond happy each visit. I have recommended him to my sister, now she loves him also.

Dr. Thompson is the Best in his field. He is thorough, knowledgeable, and sensitive to your individual needs but most of all, he is honest. He is not going to pump you up if its not necessary. He is admired and respected by his courteous staff and I can certainly understand why.

I've had the matrix laser resurfacing treatment and Botox done by Dr. Thompson. I've recently had a baby so it's been awhile since I've been in, but I highly recommend Dr. Thompson. He's experienced, confident, knowledgeable, and very personable. The staff is very friendly and helpful and I never waited long to be seen. I'm looking forward to coming back in after I've finished nursing.

I HIGHLY recommend Dr. Scott Thompson for any procedures of the face and neck. He's exceptionally skilled, ethical, professional, and personable in all interactions. He listens and is honest about outcomes and results.

I came in yesterday to get the Fotofacial I had won and this is the nicest staff I have ever worked with! They were so kind, and made me feel so at ease! It was such a great experience I'll never go anywhere else for any procedure! Jill was wonderful and even checked on me today to see how I was doing! It's so nice to feel like a person, and not a number at a clinic!! I'll be back! Thank you so much!!!

I have been going to Dr. Thompson for several years for various procedures and he is great in everything he does. He has removed moles with absolutely no scar, and he has repaired other scars. Botox and fillers and laser treatments have all been done beautifully and with great care. I love that I can depend on his skill, artisanship and judgment. His staff is also great. I have referred many friends and family to Dr. Thompson with absolute confidence!

I meet Dr Thompson through on of his awesome meet and greets where you got a wonderful presentation by him and the staff, they gave away prizes and breakfast and it was a great way to meet a new provider. I went to him about my nerve damage because he was closer than my previous doctor and Im really glad I did.

Dr. Thompson did a great job, it was a fast painless procedure and I loved the results. Within a few days the office called back to check up on me also which I thought was nice. Very courteous staff and the whole office puts you at ease. I felt Dr. Thompson really took the time to answer all my questions and had a very caring manner.

I attended one of his conferences in Salt Lake City. I wanted only the best surgeon to do it. For me that doctor was Dr. Thompson. He is very professional and has a great bedside manner. I made the appointment for the consult. He answered my many questions, addressed my concerns, and also discussed with me what I wanted and expected from the surgery. Of course, I was a bit nervous, however, I was reassured by not only Dr. Thompson but his staff as well. I can't adequately tell you how happy I am with the results. Dr. Thompson is very meticulous, honest, and skilled. His methods are state of the art and mostly, he wants his patients to be happy. His staff is knowledgable and supportive. My results have always been natural and not overdone. Thank you Dr. Thompson and staff! You are the best!

Otoplasty gave these children more balance to their facial features, but there are many patients and parents who are unaware that overly prominent ears can be corrected by means of a simple surgical...
