While I am working through a difficult situation, I appreciate Dr. Thompson's and Carrie Waltemath's clear and straight-forward approach to the situation. They made me feel very comfortable. Never felt rushed at all. Both are an asset to the community.

I have told my friends and family that Bryan health care is off the charts fantastic. I was so blessed to have Dr. Thompson perform my emergency bypass surgery. He even allowed me to read a fabulous memoir he has written and provided daily follow-up care with his software.
