HEATH THORNTON is the best doctor. He takes the time to listen to your problems, he is very compassionate, he explains your plan of care so you can understand. Everyone in the office is very nice and makes you feel welcomed.
This physician is the first I have had who explained that his choice of prescriptions was specially made out of concern for my chronic ulcerative colitis.
I have worked for doctors in the past. This office from start to finish is great. I worked for Dr. David Cayer at the Med School. He taught me to recognize a good doctor. Dr. Thornton is one.
I am very happy with my new doctor.
*Dr. Thornton is a tremendous doctor. I always feel better after a visit. 1. "The absolute best."
Love Dr Thornton
I really like coming to this Doctor. Seems to care about his patients and will tell you the right things that you need to here.
He was excellent. The treatment has not worked, but this provider seemed very good.
Medical student came into exam room without my permission
I got the help I needed
Dr. Thornton has always showed great empathy, and made me feel better just talking through some of my concerns. He's very encouraging and extremely knowledgeable.
Confidence in my Dr.
Took me a bit to warm up to him. But he listens eventually.
