Dr. Tompkins is a wonderful doctor who cares about his patients wholeheartedly and this is one of the main reasons that I have been with him for such a long time. He would ask you about everything related to your health and wellbeing and the current health needs. The people who works with him are also very nice and are very patient with me. They explain everything I want to know and they even relay the questions and concerns of mine to Dr. Tompkins which I know from the conversation with him after he steps in the exam room. I do appreciate their care and excellent services.

A caring physician who spends quality time with you to explain everything in layman's English. He is thorough and very knowledgeable on the most current procedures, medications and treatments. In my previous job I interacted with a large number of physicians over 5 states and Dr. Tompkins easily ranks in the top 5% of all them...I will only see him while in Tyler.
