Dr. Thornton is a wonderful surgeon with an impeccable bedside manner. He took the time to explain every step of every procedure of my reconstruction surgery after my bilateral mastectomy. He and his staff is very attentive and knowledgeable. I would recommend him to anyone! I can’t thank him and his staff enough for their care!

I met Dr. Thornton in mid 2017 to discuss reconstruction surgery after double mastectomy. Upon meeting Dr. Thornton and members of his staff I felt an immediate connection. He was very thorough about explaining the entire procedure and was very patient with all of my questions. This week he completed the last of my surgeries by replacing my expanders with implants. I was able to keep my skin and nipples and couldn't be more happy with the outcome. He has made me feel and look like me again!!

Dr. Thornton was absolutely amazing. He sat and talked with me like he was a friend. He explained things in such a good way that I understood the whole time. He joked around and made me feel comfortable. His bed side manner is the absolute best. He also stays on top of new treatments. He was able to reference research and data as to why he does things a certain way. I couldn't of asked for a better doctor.
