I have received excellent care from Dr. Thorburn. I've had a PMR condition for the last 5 years, which flares up at various time. I try to keep active as possible in retirement, mainly with hiking, and her care has enabled me to do so. Email responses are very prompt, and each office visit is always a positive experience.

Dr. Thornburn has been my Rheumatologist for over 10 years since I was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis at the age of 27. She helped me to improve my condition significantly and advised regarding my medication during my pregnancy. I feel wonderful under her care and I have recently finished my first half marathon! I trust Dr. Thornburn completely and would highly recommend her to my family and friends!
