    Pediatric Muscle Disease Specialist

    Dr. Thompson goes about the examination, methodically. Taking a history to find out about a child's individual medical problems as well as the family's medical history is an important priority for her. She asks many probing questions. She knows that not asking the right questions can lead to inaccurate or misleading diagnoses. She prevents errors of omission with this approach. As you watch her work, you can see her extensive training and over fifty years of experience guiding her very skillful hands. She spent 12 years in private practice of pediatrics and adolescent medicine in La Jolla, California. Her pediatric practice has since become the foundation for the Pediatric Department at Scripps Clinic in La Jolla.
