Dr. Thornton takes always takes her time and addresses all of my concerns. although I know I'm never her only patient when I come I always feel that way. the visit never feels rushed and I truly feel like she is taking care of me as a whole. she sits and asks how I'm doing which means a lot because I've been to providers who don't take the time to do that. If Tricare would allow my entire family would have her as our pcp
