Patient Reviews
Apr 22, 2021
I am Dr. Thornton's patient and I felt confident that he would be able to help me with my issues. He is understanding and takes his time to explain. I had my colonoscopy procedure today and felt from the beginning that I would be treated well from Dr. Thornton, the Anesthesiologist and nurses. I highly recommend Dr. Thornton and staff.
