Dr. Thompson was born in south central Virginia where his father and grandfather practiced family medicine. This experience taught him the importance of focusing on the individual’s personal goals for health which is the focus of his professional interests.
Dr. Thompson attended Hampden-Sydney College for a BS in Chemistry followed by Eastern Virginia Medical School for an MD and then Vanderbilt University Medical Center for Internal Medicine/Pediatrics residency. Following residency, Dr. Thompson worked in rural Virginia as a primary care physician for seven years before moving to Asheville where he has worked as a Hospitalist since. Dr. Thompson learned the mechanisms of modern medicine which is focused on the prevention and treatment of disease primarily through pharmaceuticals and surgical procedures.
Dr. Thompson also learned that the factors that have the most impact in anyone’s health, not only has to do with the optimal function of their body, but also in how they feel about themselves. This requires a holistic approach to good health which includes not only a pharmaceutical approach to reducing risk for disease, but also nutritional and fitness programs designed to help clients reach their personal goals. Supplementing all these efforts is aesthetic medicine which serves to help people feel more confident and drives success in their efforts towards better health.
Dr. Thompson sees Preveda as a starting point towards improved self-esteem and confidence from which clients will succeed in reaching their goals of better health.
