You know this works better if you actually take a big breath.

Eliot Lloyd Thompson, MD was born in Nashville, TN. However, he has called Louisville home since the age of two. He received a BA in Biology from the University of Louisville, where he was on the Deans List, a member of the Golden Key Honor Society and the recipient of the Mr. Black Diamond Choir Award. He earned his Medical Degree from the University of Louisville where he was a Robert Wood Johnson Scholar. He held offices in the Student National Medical Association, and was active in the American Medical Student Association during medical school. His Internship and Residency in pediatrics were completed at the University of Louisville School of Medicine through Kosair Children’s Hospital. During his residency Dr. Thompson worked in the Neonatal Intensive Care Units at Kosair Children’s Hospital and University Hospital. He was one of three residents in his year chosen to participate in the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit Transfer Program.

Although he chose to practice general Pediatrics, he maintains a relationship with the University of Louisville Department of Pediatrics where he is a Clinical Instructor. Part of his duties involves hands on teaching of Residents and medical students during their Pediatrics rotations. The two things he likes most about practicing Pediatrics is "teaching young doctors and watching the children grow up in my practice." He is Board Certified in Pediatrics and is a Fellow in good standing with the American Academy of Pediatrics.

We love coming to see Dr. Thompson!

Is he supposed to be on the field like that?

Dr. Thompson has 17 year old twin sons, Nigel and Nuri and a 10 year old son Jaylen, who are a constant source of amusement and challenge. 

Dr. Thompson as the next Tiger Woods.

When not spending time with them, "Dr. T" enjoys playing golf. He also is a freelance musician. He has one album to his credit, "God is Still Moving" by Keith Hunter and several demo recordings. He played with the University of Louisville Black Diamond Gospel Choir for 8 years, and several other local choirs and jazz bands. He and Dr. Wooldridge were in a band called rockdox until it's disbandment in 2000, but he still plays with other bands like Counterpoint, Spur of the Moment, and Unlimited for weddings and other special events. In fact, he has opened for Al Green, the Temptations, the Emotions, BAR KAYS and Parliment, just to name a few. He also is frequently seen at Third Central United Christian Church (3900 West Broadway) sharing his talent and love of music. In Dec. of 2004 and Dec. of 2005 Dr. T toured with the Voices of Gospel in Switzerland.



Where's the rest of the band?
