Hands down one of the most professional and personable doctors I have ever used. I was nervous in the beginning but he quickly put an end to that on the first visit!

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.
