Dr. Thompson credits a college course in human physiology with his decision to enter medicine. “Learning about the amazing ways our bodies move and function was so fascinating, I changed my major from history to biology,” says Dr. Thompson.  The opportunity to surgically treat life-threatening or life-altering conditions in patients, especially in women with breast cancer, is hugely satisfying when he can return them to good health.  Dr. Thompson serves on the board of trustees at Biola University in La Mirada. He takes medical missions to the Southern Philippines and enjoys travelling with his wife and family. One of Dr. Thompson’s hobbies is “spoiling our grandchildren at every opportunity.”

So pleased that Dr. Thompson was available when I needed him and part of my insurance coverage. He is the kindest, most gentle man and made me feel very comfortable.

That Dr. Kennith Thompson is an excellent surgeon, with an amazing personality, who was very kind and was able to gain confidence in him as a surgeon the very first day, of the meeting. After checking and examining the problem I presented to him, he was very smart to diagnose that I did not have any problems which would need surgery. True to his diagnosis, after a CT-Scan it revealed that I did not have any problems whatsoever which would have needed surgery. How great is that? I felt that here's doctor you can depend on and have full confidence on, even to go under his knife, because he will never let anything happen to you.

Dr. Thompson came highly recommended. His experience and patient Dr relationship was highly noted. Dr. Thompson and every member of his staff treated me and my family with compassion, dignity, and professionalism. I have felt very well cared for and that has helped alleviate much stress associated with my condition.
