I have had some pretty bad experiences with doctors /nurse practitioners / care providers in the past and I am very critical and picky about my care / care provider as a result so when I say that when I go to Dr Thornton I feel listened to and that I feel cared for it is a complement with quite a bit of weight. I also feel as though she is very truthful / honest with me both about my conditions and about the extent that she can treat them which is also a very big deal to me personally.

only thing I didn't think about... It was a yearly physical and we did not do pap smear or breast check and haven't done that in years??? Guess we just don't do that anymore for a yearly physical since we do mammograms yearly or unless there are any problems that arise.

Simply amazing! I needed a prescription asap and Dr. Thornton had the presence of mind to send my prescription to my second choice pharmacy so that I would receive it the same day. When the health issue worsened, Dr. Thornton was able to see me right away in spite of an already busy schedule and additional work she and her staff had to do due to the coronavirus screening and triage process. From the time I stepped into the building, the front office staff were professional and pleasant as usual. Dr. Thornton got me in almost immediately, which. came as no surprise to me as she has excellent time management skills. Once a patient steps into Dr. Thornton's office, the visit is all about her patient. She's a listener, she's patient, empathetic, compassionate; she has a phenomenal memory and a winning bedside manner. I would like to applaud Dr. Thornton and her staff for making the ultimate sacrifice for the people in our community during a most difficult time in our countries history. Scott & White, take care of Dr. Thornton. Good doctors are are hard to find. Losing such an asset will be Scott & White's liability.
