I live in the Temple but tried the Harker Heights Clinic due to working with a couple of nurses that go the Harker Heights Clinic. One of the nurses live in Temple and the other one in Killeen. That is saying something. I am glad I chose this particular clinic. Staff was great. Relaxed environment. I felt very comfortable with Dr. Thornton.

This is one of the best clinics so far that I've had a great provider and experience.

it's hard to explain but because Dr Thornton didn't listen to my concerns and requests for certain medications I will be changing PCP. I told her I needed antibiotics and an inhaler and she refused to prescribe. I ended up in the ER on Sunday 3/17 diagnosed with beginnings pneumonia. They prescribed an hour long nebulizer treatment, antibiotics, inhaler and more rest.I told Dr Thornton what I would need days before this occurred, and she thought she knew better than I. Docs follow the textbook, and not the best care for their patient. very sad and frustrating.

During the first time opportunity to meet with my new provider, I was for the most part pleased. I did elect a DO vs an MD because I feel they are more friendly and accepting of working together with patients who also work with naturopaths. Overall the "bedside manner" and communication was great, but my concern is the favor of prescription drugs (many with side affects) compared to some other more natural options.
