Dr. Thornton is my 31 yr old Cerebral Palsy & Epilepsy daughter's doctor. She is proactive with her and is wonderfully cautious with all aspects of her health. Dr. Thornton always listens to my concerns and acts upon them. I have never had a problem getting a last minute emergency appointment or a call back when I leave a message.
