Dr. Thorne is excellent! She listens, cares and super friendly.


this time we spoke with a PA before seeing Dr. Thorne - as a result many of our questions got lost in the handover from PA to Dr. - we left feeling as though we were rushed in/out. this was not the same as our former visits with Dr. Thorne.


*Dr.Thorne is amazing. She was able to find answers my previous doctor couldn't find. I drive 1 1/2 hours to see her. She had made my health so much better.


Good, very helpful and made me feel very comfortable!


I went to Mayo, hands down I would choose *Dr. Nyree Thorne for my care. Feel very blessed Got put her in my path.


By far, this has been the best experience I have ever had with a provider. Thanks for actually listening and hearing what I say. Thanks for actually caring about me. Thanks for including me in my plan of care.


Very good.


Dr. Thorne has always been helpful for my condition


I always tell anyone that Dr. Thorne is my G.I. Specialist, as I think that she really cares about her patients.


*Dr. Thorne made an "extra effort" to set me up for a procedure by *Dr. Gilliam


She was awesome and very knowledgeable of my condition, the assistant was very quiet and really just no need to be there.


I will definitely be using this provider in the future for similar issues/regular routine check up.


Dr. Thorne is a very good doctor, I feel very comfortable with her & trust her with my care, has such a good, caring, personality...........I feel so much more confident in my care with her, than I did at Hickory, & I travel an hour to my appts in W/S


*Dr. Thorne is an excellent physician. Would highly recommend to anyone requiring GI doctor.


I will continue with Dr. Thorne.


Dr. Thorne makes you feel like you are family. She is very sweet and caring.


I travel 130 miles to my appointments with Dr. Thorne and I am glad to do it. She is a first class professional.


Dr. Thorne is a very caring doctor, explains everything in an understandable way. I would highly recommend her to family and friends.
