Dr. Thornton was a referral, which I was given approximately 5 years ago. Whether I'm sending her a text, in need of a referral, an appointment, or any other medical need, Dr. Thornton has been consistently responsive and has taken immediate action. In my experience, she's kind, compassionate, empathetic, she has great work ethics, and she appears to genuinely care. As one who's energetic, Dr. Thornton's patient and poised demeanor has a calming affect. My only concern is finding another doctor with like attributes if she leaves or retires. There's only so many Dr. Thorntons.
