Doctor Thornton has been my PCP for approximately 5 years. And in that time frame, I've never been disappointed. She's worked diligently to meet any and every medical, and prescription need that I've have. If her expert opinion about a medical condition that I might have differ from mine, she listens, she hears, and then she comes up with a solution to allay any concerns that I might have. In my experience, Doctor Thornton has been proactive in every endeavor.

She was familiar with my chart so able to engage quickly with concerns/questions, made suggestions that were appropriate with my history and asked questions that were pertinent. She also engaged in listening to any questions or concerns I had. One of the best doctor appointments I have had in awhile!

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.
