My MRI showed no evidence of any "leftovers" from the surgery 6 months prior. Dr Thompson was very pleased and always spends time with us as he has for the last 13 years. This was my second tumor operation performed by Dr Thompson.

Dr. Reid Thomas explained everything, asked if we had questions and answered, had incredible "bed side" minor, and will continue later in person.
