Dr. Thompson was great for my ankle. I had went to an out of state office after my accident and they wanted to do surgery without showing me xrays. Dr. Thompson explained to me why i didnt need it and put my mind at ease. Its been 6 weeks post accident and im walking with no boot or crutches...and i didnt have to have surgery. I would definitely refer people to ortho Nebraska and dr. Thompson. Thank you guys so much.

Dr. Michael Thompson was thorough and diagnostic. He took the time to listen and figure out the problem and the best treatment for his ankles. He was patient with questions and did a great job of not talking above our heads. The entire staff was friendly, on time and patient. It was a great experience.
