Biography

Dr. Thompson is the Medical Director for Hematology and Oncology at AdventHealth Hendersonville. He is board-certified in Hematology and Oncology and focuses on providing compassionate, patient-centered care. Along with leading the Cancer Services program across four locations in Western North Carolina, Dr. Thompson is welcoming new patients at AdventHealth Hematology Oncology Infusion Services Hendersonville.

Dr. Thompson earned his bachelor’s degree in chemistry from Wake Forest University in Winston-Salem, NC and his Doctor of Medicine from the Medical College of Georgia in Augusta, GA. He went on to complete his residency in Internal Medicine from Emory University and his Fellowship in Hematology/Oncology from Brody School of Medicine East Carolina University in Greenville, NC.

Dr. Thompson originally started out practicing as an internist. However, his passion to help cancer patients led him to go back to specialize in hematology and oncology. His approach with each patient is truly one of compassion and honesty.

Personal Interests

When Dr. Thompson is not caring for patients, he is an avid runner. He has completed marathons in all 50 states, on all seven continents, and even at the North Pole. He is especially happy when he can combine his love for running with his love for travel and has enjoyed running across the Atacama Desert of Chile, the Inca trail to Machu Picchu, and most recently running across the jungle island of Dominica.

Care Philosophy

"Telling a patient that he or she has cancer is very difficult and stressful for both the patient and family. I try to balance compassion and hope with information, prognosis and treatment options. Above all, my approach is to be honest and forthright."
