About Kim M. Thompson, MD

During my early training in Chicago at The University of Chicago, and most recently at The University of Kentucky and Augusta University, I have been exposed to many challenges which face the American healthcare system nationwide: providing the most advanced and appropriate medical treatments while caring for the uninsured, underinsured and the balancing of many other social determinants that negatively impact healthcare access and health equity. I benefited from vigorous training integrating the interdisciplinary experiences of a large university hospital, a busy community hospital, and several satellite community outreach centers and free clinics. This training, along with my childhood in an underserved community as a woman of color and my adult life as a mother to four boys with special needs, solidified my commitment to family medicine and its grassroots mission of promoting community wellness and access to healthcare for all. My practice of medicine involves first hearing what my patients have to share with me, meeting them where they are, and facilitating the awareness, decisions, and care necessary to achieve the best possible health outcomes--physically and emotionally. In my past 28 years of healthcare experience, I have learned firsthand how people traumatized by poverty, inequity and oppression experience this trauma in every aspect of their lives with a direct correlation to emotional and physical health and wellness. I enjoy caring for all members of the family, especially the newest ones, and helping them to thrive as they grow together. I continue to practice and teach in an urban setting that serves patients with exceptional needs and complex issues. They range in age from newborn to the elderly, and come to see me for acute illnesses, mental health issues and chronic health conditions such as diabetes, hypertension and cardiovascular disease, as well as routine disease prevention and health maintenance visits. Outside of work, I enjoy exploring natural wonders with my family, especially around the islands of The Bahamas where I grew up, and actually, I enjoy any activity involving water. I like trying new recipes to share and also appreciate reading with a great cup of coffee.
