Patient Comments (2)
While Dr. Thornton may be very qualified in her field, I did not feel supported by her or her team. The 3 times I was supposed to talk to her on the phone with my questions, she called 1-3 hours after our scheduled time. I understand that things come up, but someone should have called to update me. Whenever I talk to her or her team I feel rushed off the phone. I don't feel as though they have my best interest in mind. This whole process is already so stressful, I wish I felt more supported.

I would not recommend this doctor at all. Infertility is such a sensitive issue, and she showed no sensitivity toward my challenges. Upon leaving her office she cavalierly instructed me to "call the office to discuss IVF options" once determining my tubes are blocked. I felt like just a uterus. Each time I saw her she made me feel like she was meeting me for the first time. Bypass her, and find someone else.
