“At age 60 I was having bladder leakage and other problems. While at a routine pap smear, my gynecologist told me I needed a bladder lift and possibly some other work. He recommended an Urogynecologist. I went online to see what I could learn about the procedure and surgeons. I quickly realized that this is a popular procedure and not difficult for someone experienced in this field. I read about every Urogynecologist in the Jacksonville area. I still did not know who to pick so I got into my car and stopped by 2 offices to see what impression I got. My second stop was Dr. Jason Thompson’s office. Dr. Thompson had worked at Mayo and was a John Hopkins graduate and has had his own private practice for several years. I arrived a little after 12 noon; I had no idea of the time. Beverly came to the window and I began asking question to my satisfaction, all the while, she never treated me like I was an imposition after realizing it was their lunch time. Beverly was very professional and experienced. She gave me the answers I wanted to feel comfortable in my decision to set my first appointment. They could see me in 2 weeks.
At my appointment, the nurse, Brittany explained everything very well. Dr. Thompson was very professional and clear in his explanations. It was obvious that he was very experienced and knowledgeable in this field. He was very clear on what procedures I needed. I felt confident that he would be the best surgeon for me. I wanted the surgery done as soon as possible so that I could get on with my life. I needed a total pelvic reconstruction surgery done. There were extensive tests done to determine the exact details of the surgery for Dr. Thompson. Within 2 weeks the surgery was done at St. Vincent’s on Belford Road. The surgery went very well and I was very happy. I spent one night in the hospital and the nurses took very good care of me.
Now after 3 months, I am thrilled that I had this surgery done. I can sleep through the night sometimes without getting up to go to the bathroom. If I do get up at night, it is usually only once or twice at the most. I do not have the back pain or discomfort sitting that I use to have. The best part is that my life does not revolve around the nearest bathroom.
Dr. Thompson’s entire staff is very knowledgeable of this field. I have learned something from each one. Dr. Thompson is an expert Urogynecologist and I am very happy I decided to pick him. His assistant, Lindsay is wonderful and exceptional also. I always felt I was in the best care possible.
My surgery was extensive, I rested and was well cared for by my friends and family and I feel great. I really am able to live a fuller life than I even thought possible. Thank you Dr. Thompson and the entire staff for being exemplary of what doctors and nurses should be. You are all outstanding!”
