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.
