Review for Dr. Thornton

My husband doesn’t do online reviews, but I do and I want to tell you, he went back to Dr Threatt even though we live in Arizona now! He really likes his honest and personable, professional opinions. He’s able to discuss anything with him and achieve a better understanding of his medical options.
