I love Gary! He always takes his time and is gentle and thorough. I've been going to him for years...I moved to Temecula four years ago and still make the trip to see him :)
Gary is "on it!" He's personable and technical, a good combo. I always have my "list" and he is great about zeroing in on my concerns and answering my questions.
I think Gary is an excellent provider of derm services. He is professional, knowledgeable and always upbeat. Over the years, I have tried several other docs before going to him but he’s a keeper!
Gary is always prompt and always gives you time to discuss your issues. He is very knowledgeable and is great about putting together an effective plan of action.
Gary and all the staff are all the very best. So friendly and accommodating. thanks
GARY IS THE BEST !!!!
I've been going to Gary for years. I can't say enough wonderful things about him. He's just the best!!!!
All parts of the process were handled very professionally. I like Gary and the other staff members' personalities and bedside manner. I would highly recommend you!
I have been seeing Gary for years. He detected an early melanoma on my back years ago, and it was successfully removed. Since then, I have seen Gary every six months. I trust him completely to detect the many skin cancers I hav...
Everyone was professional and friendly. Dr. Tompkins was pleasant and well informed. I felt comfortable and for the first time, like someone was going to get to the bottom of my problem.
Your team is great - you were able to adapt to an unplanned request in a friendly and helpful way. Dr Thompson and Lauren are great at their jobs and lovely people. I will recommend your clinic too other people
