Dr. Thorns repaired two hernias for me. Two weeks later and everything is great. He and his staff are extremely professional and helpful. The entire process from beginning to end was smooth. Would recommend Dr. Thorns to everyone I know and will be back here for any surgical procedures I need in the future.

Dr. Thorns is compassionate about the well being of his patients. My surprise surgery was fully explained to me by Dr. Thorns and I had complete confidence that my health would be restored. Thanks to his knowledge and skill and of course God's will I am well again. I really appreciate Dr. Thorn answering all my questions and telling me what to expect for my full recovery. His staff are efficient and friendly, their helpful interaction with the patients reflects the positive environment in the Surgical Advanced Specialty Center in Tomball TX. As a Registered Nurse, I highly recommend Dr. Thorns as a surgeon.

I had an emergency gallbladder removal surgery and he put me at ease that the surgery would go well! He explained the process clearly to myself and my family clearly. I definitely felt like I was in good hands during my operation. Awesome bed side manners! Recovered nicely from my surgery. I would HIGHLY recommend him!

I am a college student and went to a doctor in Huntsville that told me I was just simply constipated and sent me home 3 times. I was still In immense pain and went to receive a second opinion. It turns out my gallbladder was the size of a grapefruit and had gallstones. This was my first time in the hospital and having surgery and I could not have been blessed with a better surgeon. Dr. Thorns has the best bedside manners and is an extremely compassionate surgeon. I am so thankful for him.

Dr. Thorns has been absolutely amazing. From our first interaction, I was impressed at his level of expertise, understanding and professionalism that has exceeded that of most medical professionals I have seen. He answered all my questions and went above and beyond by advising and teaching me, rather than just giving recommendations. I appreciate him making time for me when I had a sudden reaction at night, after hours. Dr. Thorns is an excellent surgeon and I would absolutely recommend him!

Doctor Thorns saved my life! I went to the ER because I developed appendicitis. He came in quickly to do the surgery and had no complications. I am very grateful for his service. I was out of the hospital the same day with very little pain and small incisions.

Dr. Thorns did my emergency appendectomy for which I am thankful. He was an excellent surgeon and I didn't have any problems from his work. The follow-up appointment was at a very nice office in Tomball and the staff was very friendly, professional and courtesy and I didn't have to wait very long when I arrived.
