Dr. Thornton is my primary care physician. She has gone above and beyond the call of duty to provide excellent and compassionate care to me and my family. She is very knowledgeable while caring and compassionate. I have had many doctors and Dr Thornton has been by far the best!

Dr Mina has been our family dentist for 25 years. She is very professional and has a great knowledge in dentistry overall. She is the only dentist my 26 year old daughter knows and ever been to. She keeps up with technology and you always get honest opinion and answers to your questions.

I have seen Dr. Ehling for several years and trust his judgment in my care. He always explains things very clearly and takes time with any concerns I have. He never once has made me feel rushed or not heard. I feel blessed to have found him several years ago. He has kept me well!

How is this guy even a doctor? Agree with every one star rating here. He was obviously asleep and walked in looking like an intern. Everyone at sequoia has been awesome but they missed the boat on employing this guy. He does not need to be practicing medicine.

Awful, my experience with him is that he creeps me out and is unethical, dishonest, and obviously doesn't care about patients. I also don't feel like he is that knowledgeable about medicine.

The older women who works at the front is extremely rude and Dr. Siegel is very arrogant. Each time I have gone in I hear the same speech. Nothing new. It's as if he doesn't even want to waste his time with you. I wouldn't bother with these people. there are more professional doctors out there.

Review for Dr. Threatt

Dr. Threatt is really good about paying full attention to each patient for as long as needed to address any problems they have. The downside to this is that appointment times and durations can be less predictable, but it's worth the tradeoff.
