Care Philosophy

As a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon I take pride in listening to and educating my patients on the options available and deriving the safest and most effective plan of action to achieve the results they desire. From breast augmentation, tummy tucks, liposuction and mommy makeovers to facelifts, neclkifts, botox and fillers, I provide all of the cosmetic options you would desire. Or maybe it's skin cancer, breast cancer or a hand injury that you have encountered; you will get the same care.

Patient Comments (2)
in Milton, DE |
I'm a beach person, love the sun. Snowbird in Florida in the winter & live in Lewes/Rehoboth area the rest of the year. Went to Dr. Thornton for body check & I knew I had a suspicious lesion on my forehead. He performed a biopsy that day & explained exactly what he was doing & what he suspected. I felt no pain whatsoever & I'm not a fan of needles. His assistant was extremely courteous & made me feel totally at ease. I highly recommend him . Can't praise him enough.
Very caring and personal. May seem a little short or cold. At first but that is because he is professional when you get to know him he becomes more personable. Would never use anyone else.
