I’ve been going to Dr Thornburg for years. She’s extremely knowledgeable and so is the staff. I’m grateful that there are incredible people like Dr Thornburg wanting to spend her youth hidden away studying for decades to become a specialist in the field of dermatology. I have total confidence in her medical diagnosis, management, and care. I’m always treated so nice even when I’ve been miserable.

She talks a good game but ultimately dropped the ball and bailed.

Dr. Scott-Thornburg and her staff are always pleasant, professional, and thorough. Sometimes there is a wait time before seeing the Dr. when I have an appointment, because Dr. Scott-Thornburg has patients from a wide area, and she treats them immediately after examining them, instead of making them drive back for a second appointment. I understand and appreciate this, because I am one of those patients. I just bring a book along, in case I have to wait.

Dr. Scott-Thornburg is amazing. She was so wonderful with our son. Her knowledge and expertise but us at ease. She helped us understand how early intervention with issues that weren't even on our radar could help prevent long term skin problems. I highly recommend her to anyone looking for a dermatologist for their children or themselves.

Did not explain any of the costs and when the bill came it was thousands of dollars. I came in for 2 little things, turned into much more and the work was not needed as it turned out. Would never go back to this doctor!!
