Dr Thornburg I give 2 stars. Her nurse Diane I give 0 stars. Very rude. Talks to patients like they are children. If you are that miserable find a new job. I will never return to this office due to her nurse.

I found Dr. Thornburg to be rather rough physically. I have been to OB/GYN before but never had this kind of experience before.
