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.”

March 29, 2017
Dr. Thompson is a great doctor who listens to his patients. He doesn't have that "holier-than-thou" attitude and make you feel like you're ignorant. He seems to genuinely know that some people "know their body" and listens to the patient with interest, working toward an educational solution. I wish there were more doctors like Dr. Kennith Thompson.

Excellent physician who really seems to care.

Dr Thompson made me feel very comfortable on my visit. He is a very gentle doctor and shows he truly cares. I appreciate that about him.I didn't care for his medical assistant. She did the blood pressure too tight. I let her know and there was no response.
