So happy I made this appointment. I needed a cortisone injection, and was feeling pretty nervous. Dr. Thornburg relieved my fears, and the injection was basically painless.

He was evaluating my arthritic hip. He looked at X-Rays and Radiologists report, manipulated my leg then explained my options. I chose operating and requested a specific doctor. He contacted Drs office and they called that same day. We set up an initial visit.

I was experiencing severe back pain Monday evening, I called the office and left a message with Dr. Thornberg’s office, asking if they could see me on Tuesday. I received a call back at 8::01 Tuesday morning at 10::00 am. After checking in and completing some health questions, I had maybe a 10 minute wait before I was called back into a patient room. Dr. Thornberg was prompt getting to me after I was x-rayed, explained his diagnosis in terms I understood and gave me options for treatment.

Dr. Thornburg did a thorough evaluation of my knee. He gave me a knee brace that reduced the pain while walking and scheduled an appointment with the surgeon. Very happy with my treatment plan so far.

My experience with Columbia Orthopaedic Group spans several decades. I have always received excellent care. I highly recommend and invite you to the medical and surgical services that offered. Dr Thornburg explained all my options for treatment. Together with his staff my outcome is far exceeding my expectations. I will be back to taking walks with my dog and exercising.

I've always been pleased with the success of the treatment I've received. The doctors and staff members (from the X-ray and MRI tech to the scheduler and personal assistants to the physicians) have always provided impressive service. Words that come to mind include: professionalism, considerate, helpful, friendly. Maybe the thing I most admire is the high level of communication skills and people skills. Please keep up the good work.
